I am a citizen of India (third-country national?) and I currently reside in the United States. I will be joining a job in France on a "Long stay French visa". I was looking around the web to see if I could find correct information about whether or not I would be allowed to travel freely within the Schengen states on a long stay visa.
I came across this answer which says that "Third-country nationals who are long-term residents in a Schengen state may also acquire the right to move to and settle in another Schengen state without losing their legal status and social benefits."
So assuming that I am a "third country" national, how do I acquire the right to travel for tourism?
I am yet to apply for a long stay visa but I was just considering my options and possibilities right now.
