Country Spotlight: FRANCE [Terpii Travels]

Culture, Terpii Travels

Hey there everyone, Terpii here! As you know I’ve been having a great time hopping around the world these past few months. This month, I got inspired to visit the home of the only language spoken on all continents…France! Yup, did you know that around the world about 220 million people speak French, and the country of France technically spans all 12 time zones if you include its territories! There I was, hopping around, when I first noticed a great deal of French being spoken along the west coast of Africa. Then, in South America, I heard French drifting down from parts of the Caribbean and also from French Guyana.  As I continued on through Oceania, Vanatu and French Polynesia offered up the friendly greeting, “Bonjour!”  So, suddenly inspired to visit the mother country of this language, I headed over to France, the most popular tourist destination in the world!
