I love meeting likeminded people and this blog has opened a lot of opportunities for that. So while blog hopping, I stumbled upon Stephanie’s blog called Parisian Abroad and loved her blog right away! I’ve been dreaming about visiting Paris for the longest time and her blog caught my attention.

Anyway, let us start with the interview!
I prepared five interview questions about travel and travel blogging. Continue reading to get to know Stephanie’s answers and to learn more about her chic Parisian lifestyle!
5 Questions With Travel Blogger Stephanie of Parisian Abroad Blog
How did you get into travel blogging?
I started my French lifestyle and travel blog (Parisian Abroad) because I meet many people around the world interested in France culture and places to visit. I also traveled a lot so I want to share my experiences and trip itineraries. My knowledge of France means that I can give meaningful insights to people interested in traveling France, and especially Paris (where I am from).
What do you when you’re not traveling and blogging?
When I am not traveling or blogging, I have a full time job in marketing. I also love going out to bars and cafes, op shops and walks on the beach!
What’s your favorite city/country and why?
My favorite city would be Paris and the country France. It’s probably biased because I am from there but honestly I just love how gorgeous and cultural France and Paris are. This is such a great country for food, fashion, traveling, history, sports, education. I am proud to be French (and Parisian) and that’s also why I started my French lifestyle and travel blog! I know people love and are curious about Paris and France.
My travel tips would be to plan your itinerary in advance, find places not too “touristy” and always find out how you can go from one place to another! Nothing more frustrating than not doing enough research before and get stuck and waste time when you’re on holidays!
What’s your next travel destination?
My next travel destination is Paris! I am going back for a month to see my family and friends. I live in Australia, far from France, so I try to go back to France at least once a year!
So there you have it! I hope you learned something new from Stephanie today. Make sure to check out her blog and follow her social media accounts!

She has a very beautiful smile and she has the same name as my daughter. Living abroad is fun and a challenge. I am glad to hear that she’s going back to Paris soon to visit her family. There is no place like home:)
Thank you for reading this blog post!💖
Stephanie and I have a common denominator when it comes to traveling – opting for the less touristy spots. Also, having to prepare and plan in advance to not ruin the budget. Going to less touristy spots and sharing them to social media would mean help to the existing community there.
Hi, Jan! That’s great to hear! Yes, opting for less touristy spots can have some advantages. 🙂
I love her advise which is not to focus on places that are already famous. Like her, I appreciate places that are not overrated. I’d go for places that are not yet discovered by many.
Yes, I’d love to explore more underrated places, too! Thanks for dropping by, Sarrah!
I also share same sentiment when it comes to travel. Avoid those crowded places and as much as possible go early to avoid people during rush hours. She has shared valuable insights to enjoy Paris and not waste time.
Yes that’s definitely a must-do travel tip – to go early to avoid the crowd! 😊
This is a fun Q&A. Hope i can also visit Paris one day!
Same me and you, Paolo! Same! 😅

I seldom read blogs featuring fellow bloggers. This is a great idea for collaboration!
I like Stephanie’e advise – not to focus on mainstream tourist spots. That’s also one of our travel goals.
Hi Nadj, glad you like this blog segment. Stay tuned for more blogger features. 🙂
I must agree with her belief of going to less touristy places. That way, it is more serene and you could enjoy the place for yourself and experience, as well. Less hassle pa. Ciao!
Yes, exactly! Thanks for dropping by, Diwata!
Stephanie really is living the life! I’d love to be in Paris too. 🙂
That’s the dream! 🙂
I agree that avoiding ‘touristy’ destinations should be considered before traveling. The first time I went to Baguio, I wasn’t able to enjoy the fresh air. Super crowded!
Oh yes, grabe crowded sa Baguio! Especially summer months. Hope you can enjoy it with less crowds next time. 🙂
Wow, amazing collaboration here. I had a very fun time reading this piece. I highly enjoyed the sentiments shared and ofcourse travel stories.
Thank you, Franze. 🙂
Thanks for sharing this awesome interview. You did a great job on featuring her blog. Where in Australia she is?
Not sure, where exactly in Australia. Probably Melbourne? 🙂
I hope she was able to fulfill her plan of going back to France prior to lockdown. She is evidently proud of her country. But, of course! I would love to visit Paris, too given the chance.
Yes, anyone would be proud to be from Paris! I’d love to visit there too. 🙂
I love her hair. She pulls it off quite nicely and getting to read a bit about her, makes me curious to find out more. I don’t know much about france and who knows if I’ll ever get to visit it in the future, but for now, a parisian friend sounds awesome. Will check out her blog.
Thanks, Christian. 🙂
this is such a great idea.. i agree that its best not to focus on places that are not so popular, instead feature other places that can be a tourist deatination as well in that way we can help that place be popular
Yes agree with you! 🙂
