Thanks for stopping by! My name is Andi Fisher and I am pleased to meet you and share a little about who I am:
I am a blogger, storyteller, influencer, brand ambassador, and marketer.
Oh and a Francophile who happens to be married to a French man.
I am a world traveler, a foodie, a bookworm, and a movie nut.
I grew up an Army brat living all over the United States, Latin America, and Europe.
I am not a domestic goddess, fashionista, or a mean person, if you are looking for that, move along.
I don’t take myself too seriously and don’t expect any of you to either.
That’s me in a nutshell.
Why read Misadventures with Andi?
I am fun, positive, and strive to make each day the best it can be. Heck, there is so much you cannot control, I choose to be happy!
I love all things French and embrace the French lifestyle, or inspire to at least. When it comes to traveling to Paris, I have been there more than 50 times so I’ve got you covered. I love all my expat friends and locals that live there, but they aren’t tourists and forget what it’s like to visit the City of Light as such.
I am always a tourist, even if I am a well-informed one, and I share my tips and tricks, and experiences. I speak the language, I am married to a French guy, so I have some advantages, but I am always a tourist!
I blog about the things I like: travel, France, especially Paris, food (lots of food), movies, books, blogging, and social media.
Why the name Misadventures with Andi?
In 2003, I moved to Switzerland to work. That was the first time living in a foreign country without my parents, so of course, there were mishaps, or misadventures, which I reported to all my friends and family in a weekly email called Misadventures with Andi.
“I’d rather have misadventures than no adventures at all!”
In 2008, when I decided to start a blog, the name stuck.
More About Andi…
I am a full-time corporate gal with 30 years of experience in customer advocacy, social media, influencer + content marketing. In November 2015, I quit my job in San Francisco, sold my house in Berkeley, and bought an RV with my hubby! During 2016-7, we escaped the old life and traveled throughout the U.S.
We landed in Phoenix where we spent 2 years exploring the beautiful Southwest. I went back to corporate life working as the program manager for an enterprise influencer program and then got a dream job managing a customer advocacy program at Red Hat (all opinions are mine and not my employer’s). I fell in love with Raleigh, North Carolina and at the beginning of 2020, Mr. Misadventures and I picked up our household, left Phoenix, and resettled on the East Coast in the wonderful Raleigh-Durham area.
Welcome and let the misadventures roll!
