VISIT PARIS

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 →

Bloggers Guide to Paris

I’ve written about Paris countless times, so much so that I even created a Visit Paris page on my blog. But the fact remains that when it comes to certain subjects there are others who are far more expert than I. So I figured I’d put together this post which I’m dubbing the “Bloggers Guide to Paris” where I help introduce you to some other great people and resources for exploring the city by linking to some of my favorite posts they’ve written. I’m sure there is so much I’ve... Read The Rest →

Paris Travel Tip #2

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 →

An {almost} French Christmas

By far the best thing about being abroad over the holidays is being adopted. I was lucky enough to be invited to join my friends Catherine and Caroline‘s to join their family for Christmas in Picardie, less than an hour north of Paris. The second best thing was that it was all a fairly last minute plan. I was told which train station to get off of at, but other than that I didn’t really know where I was going. I always have thought experience gifts were the best, and... Read The Rest →

Paris Address Book

Habitué is the French word for “regular.” For this guide I wanted to create a resource of my favorite places in the city that I find myself frequenting the most (it’s part cheat sheet for myself when trying to figure out where to take my friends when they visit – I have 3 here this week, for a total of 7 this month!). You’ll notice that there aren’t that many restaurants on the list (not eating out is how I afford to live here), so you can trust that anything... Read The Rest →

Tour de France: Paris by Arrondissement

20 arrondissements and 19 guest bloggers later the ‘Tour’ de France, Paris edition has come to a close – for now. All my guest bloggers did such an awesome job sharing their neighborhoods, I wanted to put them all in one easy to find place, and create a giant resource, whether you’re looking for some weekend inspiration or a new Paris read. Mille mercis to everyone for their great work! Bon week-end à tous! The last 2 digits of Parisian zip codes refer to the arrondissement or district. There are... 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 →
