The French have given us more than just good wine and sweet treats… turns out they have a way with words, as well. We really can’t discuss literature without mentioning a few of the French greats. Where would we be without one-liners like ‘Love is a reciprocal torture’? Thanks Monsieur Proust! Read on below to[…]
Paris inspiration: find out the 10 books about Paris you need to read before your trip. Ah, Paris… The city of Love! Of Lights! Of art and literature too! With so many great things going for it it’s no wonder there have been thousands of books published about Paris. But you can’t be expected to[…]
This holiday season, give them gifts they’ll actually thank you for. Enough with the keychains, notebooks, and cufflinks splattered with “I love you Paris”. Down with the Eiffel tower salt shakers, the Paris skyline magnets, the berets, lthe badly-translated wall art… This holiday season, gift something unique! Something your Paris lover will actually appreciate and[…]
The best 2016 Paris Christmas Markets, along with pros, cons, and a map In French it’s Marché de Noël. In English you would say Christmas markets or Holiday markets. In German it’s Christkindlmarkt. Well, whatever you call it, these markets are an amazing part of winter in Paris. Below you’ll find this year’s top Paris[…]
Your peek into the life of the Paris-loving literary genius “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Source: Napoleon Sarony, Wikimedia commons Most people exist, and most people have heard this quote at least once in their lives. It comes from Oscar Wilde, an Irish writer who[…]
This Paris park boasts more than just grass to keep you happy. If you’ve seen the Versailles gardens, then you know what a French style garden is. And you equally know that Parc Monceau, as a breath of fresh air, is not a French style garden. Despite (or in light of) that, it really has[…]
Celebrating Halloween in Paris just got easier. Halloween in Paris is not on the same level as elsewhere in the world (lookin’ at you, United States). But as a holiday, it IS catching on here, slowly but surely! Masks, face paints, costumes (rental or purchase), decorations…. You can now find them all in Paris. As[…]
I learned what nuit blanche meant shortly after arriving in France to study. I was trying to explain the American university experience to a French friend. In my fumbling French, I described the typical approach to final exams. (For me) that involved far too many sleepless nights at the library, lips glued to cans of[…]
I was innocently strolling my neighborhood when I saw a street blocked off to traffic. “Strange,” I thought, and I figured there must have been a fire though I couldn’t see any fire trucks. I continued walking down the street and before long I apparently accidentally stepped into a time machine because I was –[…]
Ladurée is a global household name, and many travelers are lucky enough to have a Ladurée in their home country. Yes, since its humble beginnings in 1862 as a simple bakery, Ladurée has now become an international brand. You can find shops in London, New York, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai… But let’s not get ahead[…]
Do you know what I mean when I say, when you live abroad there are some things you miss with every fiber of your being? Things that end up being 100% wrapped up in the definition of the word “homesick?” Do you know what I mean when I say, “cheesecake?” Cheesecake is an obsession for[…]
As nice weather arrives in Paris, there’s nothing better than grabbing a drink or some food with a view. And with the bi-annual Paris sales happening (I know you’ll be out there taking advantage of some sweet deals!), introducing you to the Printemps department store’s rooftop café ‘Déli-Cieux’ seems like the perfect idea. If you’ve[…]
I have a history lesson for you today… but it involves shopping too, so not to worry! Today marks the start of the bi-annual ‘soldes’ (sales) in Paris. If you’ve ever visited the city in July or January, you know exactly what I’m talking about. But how did these sales come about? And why are[…]
There is no shortage of monuments to climb in Paris… the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Cœur Basilica, Montparnasse tower, even the Institut du Monde Arabe (check the views here). But for a true climb into history (and honestly the most breathtaking views I’ve ever seen) there’s one clear winner: the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral. Let[…]
Paris – although not a big city in terms of size – is densely packed with unique activities. So much so that even I who have lived here for over 6 years am sometimes overwhelmed and stumped! But part of our goal is to share the unique, interesting, off-the-beaten path aspects of Paris. That’s why[…]
Paris is lacking a little vitamin D right now but that doesn’t mean we need to shut ourselves away in the darkness and hibernate until June actually feels like June… There are plenty of Paris activities to keep you going even in the worst of weather. Our suggestions below! CAFES I mean, we ARE in[…]

A friend of mine recently had his brand-spanking new iPhone stolen on the Paris metro. His loss (as well as my own pretty unsavory experience with phone theft) prompted me to write a guide for anyone using smartphones in Paris, though especially for iPhone users since those are the phones most likely to be targeted[…]
This central-Paris flower market will astound and surprise Paris is now starting to get a taste of that delicious warm weather, giving everyone the itch to get outside and take advantage of it! Nothing beats walking through the city streets, seeing what treasures might be stumbled upon. For example, the flower and bird market on[…]
The word French and the word food go hand in hand, right? I have been so lucky to discover this amazing country in so many ways… but especially through eating. Lucky me, I know! From breakfast to lunch to aperitif to dinner it’s pretty safe to say that the French have surpassed many different cuisines[…]
