Weekend Links: Week 30

weekend links week 30 roses in paris

I learned a big lesson the hard way this week – if there is a heatwave in France, do not under any circumstances get on a train. I had what I thought would be a quick roundtrip to London on Tuesday and ended up spending nearly seven hours on the train coming back, some of the time without electricity (and air-conditioning). Luckily the extreme heat seems to be behind us for now and the week was all downhill from there! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 30 include information on the upcoming Hôtel Lambert auction, a preview of a new hotel in the Loire Valley, French farmhouse (and Parisian apartment) tours, and a piece on Jean Imbert. Enjoy!
