I spent last weekend in Neuilly-sur-Seine (with a bonus visit to La Défense), which is essentially like saying I spent the weekend in a suburb as close to Paris as you can possibly get. For most Parisiens, French people, and even tourists, I’m sure this isn’t at all exciting. I however fell in love with Neuilly-sur-Seine.
The worst part about coming to Paris is the travel (unless you live close, of course). I’m luckily not a nervous flyer, but any long-haul flight puts a lot of physical stress on the body. Arriving in Paris is exciting and you want to hit the ground running, but jet lag can get in the way. After going back-and-forth a few times (I had 18 long-haul flights last year), I’ve come up with a list of the best ways to avoid and cure jet lag and arrive in Paris feeling your best.
A friend recently asked for suggestions of where to go for a weekend trip in France in May, which immediately reminded me of the trip I took to the South of France. I spent the first unforgettable evening in Èze at the Hotel Cap Estel.
