Jon Chinn from Birkenhead in England fell in love with the French way of life when he studied French in Amiens, Picardy, north of Paris whilst at University.
We talk to Jon about what life is like for expats in Lyon and why it’s a great place to live…
What inspired you to move to Lyon?
I married a French girl and we moved to Lyon for my job. I first arrived in Paris which is great when you are young and don’t mind living in a very small apartment but once you have a family and a decent job, it just becomes too expensive. We were based in Strasbourg for my job for a while, it’s a beautiful place, with a very strong identity and very different from the rest of France.
