French Friday – One of my favorite Paris hotels is not in Paris!


That’s right. One of my favorite hotels in Paris isn’t actually in Paris, but rather the Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle airport! Huh? Yes, seriously, the Sheraton Paris Airport Hotel. When flying back to the U.S. from Paris, the flights are generally in the morning, between 7 and 11 a.m. Getting to the airport from Paris takes an hour, […]

Three simple tips on how not to be the annoying American tourist in Paris


Back when I did my trip report about my last trip to Paris I mentioned that I was going to follow up with a post about a group of Americans from New York who had impeded our Notre Dame excursion. Instead of picking on that particular group because that’s not really nice,  I am going […]

Guest post: JenX67 on Madeline


I got her! One of my favorite bloggers, guest-posting here! I tried to get Jen of JenX67 when I went to Paris in May, but her entire house fell sick, so instead a wrote a post in homage of her.  I cannot tell you how much I admire Jen.  She is a very talented writer […]

Guest post: Corrie will always have Paris

My pickle talks autism

Corrie and I found each other through SITS.  She writes a blog called My Pickle Talks Autism.  I like reading the stories about her days with her children. I know that autism is a serious matter, but I find the stories about her son so lighthearted. Sort of “out of the mouth of babes” kind […]

French Friday – French Fantasy Christmas List


I thought it would be fun to do a French Friday Christmas list. I don’t buy any Christmas presents for anyone except my two nieces. We reached the age in my family where we really don’t need more “stuff” and I prefer to give money to charity or buy things for families in need rather […]

Day 11 Giveaway: Fleur de Lys pendant

Day 11

In honor of French Friday, today’s giveaway has a French theme. In June I won a contest on My French Corner – the question was easy – what would I do with $1000 in Paris – I said spend it all on dinner at Georges V (even though that would not cover the whole meal) […]

Welcome to Part 2 of the recap of my recent Paris trip. If you missed Part 1 you can go back and read it here. Wednesday (11/25) Okay, so the plan was to go to Versailles and spend the day in and around the chateau. Only problem was, we did not think to set an […]

Paris Road Trip Report – Nov 09 – Part 1


For some reason I always procrastinate on doing these trip reports.  I am certain what I have to say can’t possible live up to what you are expecting. I put them off, and sometimes I don’t ever get back to them, like my Paris trip in May where I did a partial report and then […]
