Lost in Cheeseland will make you drop everything and move to France

Lost in Cheeseland is not a fantasy you had when you were a kid about living in a world made of cheese. To Lindsey Tramuta it describes France, her home for over the past 10 years.

In many ways Lindsey represents the expat Parisian dream a la Sex and the City.

That time has come again. #worldinbloom #springinparis

Moving to Paris from Philadelphia over 10 years ago, Lindsey is a bonafide Francophile with an extremely informative and cute-as-a-button Instagram account.

She first visited as a foreign exchange student and, after falling in love with a Frenchman, she made the leap of faith and moved to Paris for good.

She has since grown her little empire of all things French (not only the cheese, but thankfully lots of that too), and covers food, travel, and interesting people through beautiful photos that capture all that is quintessentially French.

This of course means an enormous focus on food. Everything from macarons, to crepes, to fine wines, to cheeses, to steak-frites, and pastries are covered thoroughly in Lost in Cheeseland as Lindsey is a true food fanatic like any Francophile worth their salt.

Her Instagram cover everything from new bakeries, old restaurants, quirky pensions, views, and even interesting events and observations. She even has some tips on how to start living in France as an expat!

The eternal allure of France and its capital probably didn’t need any bolstering, but we’re definitely pretty much ready to book a flight there stat.
