We are off on another fun summer adventure, and thanks to the non-functioning airplane wifi, Weekend Links Week 33 is a little smaller than normally. Some of my favorites include info on a new Paris Gelato pop-up that I can’t wait to try, a look at Grace Kelly’s Côte d’Azur vacation villa that is now for sale, and a look at Laura Gonzalez’s Paris studio. Enjoy!
Romain so dramatically started this week by saying it was the “worst summer of his life” because of the rain and colder temperatures in Paris. It’s true that it’s been wetter and cooler than normal, but I honestly don’t mind it one bit. I’ve used the time to catch up on some work, including a better late than never publishing of the June 2023 recap. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 32 include a list of the best restaurants in Saint Tropez, a look inside a cool new cocktail bar in Paris, and a preview of the new Titanic exhibit in Paris. Enjoy!
June seemed to fly by as we were eagerly counting down the days until our summer trip to the US. It was a warmer month and I fully expected it meant we were going to have a hot (aka miserable) summer in Paris, but as it turns out July feels more like October. We spent most of the month trying to stay cool whether inside with air-conditioning or with ice creams outside. The last day of the month brought some very valuable travel lessons. Read on to discover where I ate, drank and shopped and what I did in the June 2023 recap.
I didn’t intend on taking time away from Weekend Links, but while I was at home in the US we traveled on two Saturdays, which is when I usually put these together. I had a dog sitting on my lap both times, so using my computer was out of the question. I’m back in Paris and Weekend Links Week 31 is back. Some of my favorites include a cartoon guide to French colloquialisms, a list of the best hotels in the South of France, vintage Chanel references in the new Barbie movie, and a look at how Hermès scarves come to life. Enjoy!
I fully expected that I would be putting together this week’s Weekend Links from the US, but American Airlines had other plans for us. Yesterday was…a lot. Truly something I’ve never experienced on a travel day before, but it was a great learning experience. I now have strong opinions on airport hotels, the importance of using a car service, and the benefits of splurging on VIP departure assistance that I will share with my clients. We are now on the plane, hopefully about to push back very shortly! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 27 include an overview of the current situation in France, a list of great day trip options from Paris, and a foodie trip to the South of France with great tips. Enjoy!
