Weekend Links Week Nine breaks my record for the number of articles – there are 47 this week. You won’t want to miss Air France’s new safety video that will bring you to Paris, Versailles, the South of France and more as well as colorized 4k footage from Paris in the 1920s. I recommend settling in with a cup of coffee or even a glass of wine and enjoying!
Happy Friday from Paris. I know quite a lot of people, myself included, are experiencing pandemic fatigue/burnout right now. Getting through another week continues to feel like an accomplishment. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features Devotions Café, a sweet Montmartre spot to put on your Paris list, a special offer from Caudalie’s new Resveratrol line, a cappuccino tart and more!
It’s hard to believe, but I hadn’t taken a day trip to Versailles from Paris in seven years, largely because of the number of visitors. But in the absence of the normal crowds, visiting the Château de Versailles in the fall became an absolute must.
Week eight of Weekend Links has a little bit of everything, again. There are quite a few recipes from Apollonia Poilâne’s croissant to a buttery tarte tatin. Some of my favorites include the UNESCO recognition “battle” between the baguette and Parisian rooftops, the search for centuries-old oak wood to rebuild the Notre Dame spire, a story on Burger King France handing out bags of potatoes to anyone who wanted them, and the best of Southern France according to a local winemaker. I hope you enjoy!
Once again I am so ready for the weekend, and I know I’m not alone. My thoughts have been with family, friends, and fellow Texans in general this week, some who have been without power, water, and/or food because of the winter storm. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France includes a Louvre x Casetify collaboration, a look at a snowy Versailles, the first pink blooms in Paris and more!
