Welcome to my blog, Bonjour: A Francophile Blog!
Bonjour! I’m Darlene.
I launched this blog in early 2018 to chronicle my second trip to France. Since then, it has been growing into a friendly community of fellow Francophiles, supportive bloggers, and travel & cultural experience enthusiasts – from all around the world!
From my home in the San Francisco Bay Area, I write about various topics, like my favorite French books and music. Sometimes I review French or French-inspired products. Other times, I share pictures of food. One of my most read posts is my recipe for quiche with a gluten-free crust!
Recently, I started a weekly series where I share a postcard from my collection (usually they’re from France or other Francophone places).
So, how did I become a fan of all things French, you ask? For my introduction, I invite you to read my post, A Francophile is Born.
If you enjoy reading about these topics, then I hope you’ll enjoy my blog.
Thanks for visiting!
