The temperatures dropped pretty significantly over the weekend in Paris. From Sunday on I’ve noticed the tiniest bit of snow each day, even though it wasn’t sticking. Yesterday I was very surprised to come out of the Métro to see the snow falling in Montmartre. Even though it barely stuck, it was pretty to watch. Overnight even more snow fell so we woke up to Paris covered in a blanket of white.
It’s starting to feel like spring is really around the corner in Paris. Temperatures have been more mild and the birds have really been chirping. I know the groundhog saw his shadow, but hopefully we don’t really have six more weeks of winter to go. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features the best truffle Brie cheese in Paris, an update on the rising Seine River, a Love in the Louvre virtual visit and more!
I received a few questions on Instagram regarding how to pick a neighborhood in Paris and wanted to answer them here so they can be referenced in the future. My responses are really based on my personal experience so they are by no means the be-all and end-all answers. I hope you might find them helpful!
Between renewing my titre de séjour (French residency card) and preparing for a potentially impending third lockdown, this week was busier than I expected. I’m very much looking forward to a quiet weekend at home (with Dalton 😊). This week’s Five Friday Finds from France include an upcoming Damien Hirst exhibit titled Cherry Blossoms that I’m already dying to see, my current favorite seasonal margarita recipe, a fabulous French cooking experience with my friend Véronique of Cuisine Elégante and more!
This week has been an exciting one – there’s definitely a feeling of optimism in the air that’s been missing for quite some time. Although certainly not earth-shattering, this week’s Five Friday Finds from France does have a few recommendations you might want to note for a future trip to France. Included are where to find Paris-themed reusable tote bags, how to find good coffee at McDonald’s in France, live music on a Sunday in Paris and more.
