The Team


Juliette was born in Berlin and grew up as a third culture kid all over before moving to the UK for her studies, and then France in 2015.

Both times, settling in England and again in France, sparked the idea for this website. Not having a complete resource with instructions and answers.

From dangerous landlords to fake working contracts, getting utterly lost in administration or landing dead-end internships, Juliette has experienced it and is now dedicated to help others like her avoid the same traps.


Amaury is the French component of the team, he was born in Paris and has lived there for 15 years. He has worked in France (Paris and Toulouse), the UK and in Qatar.

During his experiences abroad, he was confronted with the classic issues of an expat like opening a bank account, making sure you have health insurance...


Sam is originally from the UK and has lived in the Netherlands, Germany and France. In Paris since 2018, he has worked as an Au Pair, Recruiter and now as a Web Developer.

When he's not in front of a computer screen you can find him on a bicycle in the streets of Paris.

Having moved many times and dealt with the post-Brexit visa process, he loved the idea of providing a thorough resource to help people navigate the challenges of discovering a new country!
