Lindsey, the author, is brilliant - I smile every time I read one of her posts because she really captures the essence of Paris (both the good things and the slightly non-so-great!). Awesome blog and I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't already done so :) Leanne x

Offering unique and interesting views on a city like Paris can be a daunting task for the best of writers. Like New York, London, and other great cities, it would seem that every slice has been carved out of the pie where writing about Paris is concerned. To know a city is to know its people and to walk among them, and doing so while offering a personal, sometimes light and whimsical, and often touching perspective is something writer Lindsey Tramuta does with skill and grace. 'Lost In Cheeseland' is at once a first person account and a guide for navigating the streets, the people, and the buffet of goings-on Paris serves up every day.

I always look forward to new posts from Lindsey-- Lost in Cheeseland is my go-to source for all things Parisian. This is a lovely blog.

20:16 PM October 07, 2012

Lost in Cheeseland is one of my favorite blogs! Lindsey covers both life in Paris as well as life as an expat, her writing is a joy to read and she takes gorgeous photos!

20:31 PM October 07, 2012

What's it really like to live in Paris, be in Paris, eat in Paris? Lindsey has it covered. Her photos and writing give you a glimpse into the Parisian lifestyle as it is, not as it's expected.

20:48 PM October 07, 2012

Lindsey's blog is a delightful alternative to discover Paris as she shares insights about the best places of the food scene or cute little cafes that are trying to transcend this great beverage. Very inspiring !

21:15 PM October 07, 2012

I live in Cheeseland...and Lindsey helped me not be so lost. Enough said! Love it, live it, and am lost without it!

21:25 PM October 07, 2012

I like reading Lindsey's blog and would look her up for ideas on what to do, where to eat in Paris. She takes beautiful photos and I really enjoy reading on her weekly Franco file Fridays feature.

21:44 PM October 07, 2012

Lindsey offers fresh and genuine insight into life as an expat living in Paris. I, in particular, connect with her writing as a fellow expat now living in Belgium with my Belgian husband. "Lost in Cheeseland" is a wonderful blog and Lindsey, a very talented writer!

21:44 PM October 07, 2012

One of my favorite Paris expat blogs and I ADORE Lindsey - such a talented author, photographer, eater ;-) and all around nice person! So happy her blog was nominated!

22:34 PM October 07, 2012

This is my favorite blog, not just about Paris, but all of the blogs I read. LostinCheeseland captures the parts of the city that I'd like to know as a traveler, not as a tourist. I remember Lindsey's posts long after I read them, and file them away for my next trip.

We love Lindsey's blog and refer our guests to it all of the time for great info on Paris!

I love Lost in Cheeseland - put it on my blog roll so I can always make sure I get the updates. Lindsey, the author, is a clever writer and amazing photographer. She is totally clued in to the Paris scene and I can always count on her for news on restaurant openings and current events. I am an expat like her and so relate to a lot of the issues she covers such as struggling to find your identity in a foreign city, returning home to US and finding it difficult to fit in, etc. Go add Lost in Cheeseland to your RSS reader now!

Lost in Cheeseland is aweome. I am also an expat in Paris and I use Lost in Cheeseland as a reference for everything. Kudos to Lindsey!

13:44 PM October 08, 2012

Lindsey's blog is a fresh, invigorating reminder of the possibilities for an expat in a foreign place and the guts it takes to take advantage of them. She writes in an honest, unique voice about her charming love/hate relationship with France and the French.

I read Lindsey's blog because as much as I love Brussels, sometimes it feels too small and I get tempted to jump across the border. Lost in Cheeseland is in fact not lost at all. It is the authentic type of blog which gives a glimpse of what it is like to really live there for those who dream of traveling to Paris, but also avery useful reference for all those who visit regularly.

Lindsey is forever challenging how I think of Paris, and offering fresh perspectives of what expat life in France can look like. Few Paris writers get it right. Lindsey does, and with a touch of eloquence and class to boot. A total breath of fresh air.

19:03 PM October 16, 2012

Our members are very familiar with Paris and Lindsey offers a new side of Paris that we may have missed and reminds us of the things we fell in love with during our stay. This is a must-read for those who are looking for a realistic point of view about living in Paris and insight into the lesser known treasures the city has to offer. - American University of Paris Alumni Chapter in Washington, DC

13:36 PM December 03, 2012

Excellent writing, stunning photography, and meaningful and engaging content- everything I look for in a blog. Lindsey sheds new light on Paris by revealing her own insights on the city and French culture. Her Francophile Friday series has introduced me to other wonderful blogs and people who share a passion for everything French. Would recommend this blog to anyone!
