Paris is the number one tourist destination in the world, so it’s no wonder people are always looking for tips and great spots when visiting the city. This page is designed to pull all the resources I’ve created over the years conveniently in one place. First, it is necessary to know that Paris is divided into 20 arrondissements, or districts. Each one has a personality of its own, and each one is great in its own way. One of my favorite projects I’ve done is the Tour de France project,... Read The Rest →

Paris Travel Tip #5

The metro (and bus) is a fantastic way to get around Paris, and you can save both time and money by buying a carnet or book of 10 tickets, which can be used on the bus, metro, and RER (within zone 1-2, which is mainly where you’ll be with the exception of airports and Versailles). There are weekly and monthly passes, which are great if you’re here for a long time and expect heavy ridership, but there’s a small fee up front (~5 Euros) and you’ll need to have a...

Paris Travel Tip #4

Tip #4 : Use your phone or camera to photograph the mundane – ie. bus route, store hours/names – to act as a cheat sheet and reference later. Whenever you’re in a new place, it takes a little while to get your bearings. Yet, even as someone who has lived in Paris for a few years, things like bus routes still don’t come naturally to me. The bus is a great way to see Paris, as you’re always above ground and can see where you’re going and better understand how... Read The Rest →

Tip #2: Don’t look any further than the walls of the metro to find out what’s happening around the city right now. You don’t need to open a book, newspaper, magazine, application or website to find out what’s going on in this city. From museum exhibits to concerts, and special events sponsored by the city, it’s all plastered right in front of your eyes – literally. I’m constantly thinking “oh, I have to catch that before it closes” thanks to a poster in the metro. It’s the ultimate unintentional multi-tasking... Read The Rest →

Paris Practique :: Safety in Paris

Ironically I had planned this post for last Friday, but didn’t get around to it – and that day my friend had her iPhone stolen (by no fault of her own). As far as I’m concerned – especially coming from Baltimore, which is home to The Wire – Paris is an incredibly safe city. Still, with all big cities, it’s always a good idea to be aware of your surroundings and know what to expect/avoid. Really, all you need to know is how to put on your “Paris bitch face”...

Boarding Pass – Nidhi Malhotra

When I first discovered the blog of designer Nidhi Malhotra, UNworn a few months ago she had just returned from a trip from Paris, so of course I was instantly smitten. I loved the way her photos captured the city. Her images aren’t the typical tourist images, but rather all the simple charms around the city that make it Paris. I’m so pleased to feature her in today’s BOARDING PASS, as India is another place that ranks very high on my favorite places list. Thanks, Nidhi!last trip taken: Delhi, Udaipur,... Read The Rest →
