As it turns out, Francophilia is contagious. Like many Americans, I was born with some immunity to it, but with enough exposure to an infected person, and a few trips to Aquitane, Perigord, Provence, the Loire, and the Ile de France, the immune system finally succumbs.
The good news is that it’s not fatal. The bad news is that the only cure is long-term exposure to France and all things French. Ok, well that’s good news, too, really, so if you’ve caught the bug, there’s really not a downside.
At Transitions to France, we’re going to explore and chronicle the various treatments and remedies for Francophilia. I’d love to have your insights, so feel free to add your ideas and suggestions any time.
