Bonjour! I'm Andi Fisher.

of Misadventures with Andi

I am a content creator, storyteller, and marketer. Oh, and a Francophile which means I love all things French! I write about travel, food, and France, including aspiring to follow a French lifestyle. If Paris is your jam, I am here for you with all the deets. But I also do a lot of outdoor adventures looking for places that are off the beaten path in the U.S. as well.

Frenchie Friday - June 14, 2024

Frenchie Friday - June 14, 2024 We had an AMAZING weekend in Charlotte! It was nice to go away without a plan, something we don't do a lot! Lesson learned, sometimes winging is fun too! France elections woo-wie! My gal pal, author Lindsey Tramuta has a great series of articles that she uses to detail French cultural and political happenings. She does a really good job of explaining the recent French elections. Also, another good article from Le Monde: Snap elections in France: How it works,...

Frenchie Friday - June 7, 2024 Did anyone watch any of the D-Day ceremony from Normandy yesterday? I did. And I could not help being moved by what I saw and heard. The Normandy American Cemetery is so beautiful on a regular day, but to see it full of veterans who were there is just amazing! My friend Kristin survived her rain-soaked 10-day trip to Paris (and Lyon). She was there for the French Open and did a fantastic write-up of her experience. If you ever consider attending the Roland...

Frenchie Friday - May 31, 2024 The last day of May - WOW!

Frenchie Friday - May 24, 2024 More strikes coming out of France (the trains: SNCF/RER) and as we approach the Olympics the unions will use the event to get their way and cause havoc. The inaugural direct flight between Phoenix and Paris took off yesterday! I enjoyed this It's strawberry season here in North Carolina and my good friend Brianna of Casual Foodist has one of my favorite ways to eat them: Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Honey Balsamic Dressing - try it, you'll love it! And try...

Frenchie Friday - May 17, 2024 Sorry I missed last week, I was at a tradeshow in Denver all last week for my real day job. Mornings that started at 6 and evenings that ended at 11. Not much time for misadventuring! France has a crazy 2 weeks! On the entertainment side, the French Swifties came out of the woodwork to attend Taylor Swift's 4 shows in Paris. She is in Lyon June 2 and 4th. Cannes film festival opened up, there is plenty of #MeToo and other world dramas, I personally enjoy the red...

Frenchie Friday - April 26, 2024 Our last week in Portugal! The weather had been incredible this month until this week. It has rained on and off most of the time with a few windows of sunshine. We have made the best of it. It didn't prevent us from enjoying all the AMAZING food and wine! Today we head back to Paris and then Saturday I head home for a quick stop to do laundry before heading to Denver for a business event. Mr. Misadventures is staying in France another week. It's May, an...

Frenchie Friday - April 26, 2024 On Sunday, we did an amazing 8-hour walking tour of Porto. It was jam-packed with info, but also in French so my brain was very tired after all the fun! This is our third time in Porto but the first time visiting some of the more touristy sites like Lello Library, Cafe Majestic, and many more sites. One spot I really apprecitated that I don't think is on a lot of people's list is the Stock Exchange building which is just gorgeous. I highly recommend it if you...

Frenchie Friday - April 5, 2024 By the time you are reading this I will be on a plane to Paris. We are heading to Portugal for a month, bookended by 2 weekends in Paris. And of course, as I always warn you about, we have not 1 but 2 strikes to navigate through. Saturday there will be both a student-led demonstration at the sports ministry to denounce the removal of residents from student housing during the 2024 Summer Olympics AND the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) are back at Place de la...

March 20, 2024 Steel and Style: Cheers to 135 Years of Eiffel Tower Charm I know I am interrupting your Easter, but today's a very special lady's birthday! Can you believe it?

Imagine the scene: Gustave Eiffel, the ingenious mind behind the tower's design, standing tall and proud as he presided over the dedication ceremony. Alongside him, French Prime Minister Pierre...
