I explained all the background of how it took me two years to finally get myself signed up to do some Context Travel tours in the post I did earlier this week about my first tour, Baguette to Bistro.  I spent the morning with the incomparable Meg Zimbeck, the tour docent, as well as founder, editor and contributor to one of my favorite food blogs, Paris by Mouth.  The tour was fabulous and after s … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #143: Red Metro Chairs

Red Chairs in Paris Metro

How about you? Do you have a favorite color that calls to you? … [Read more...]

Angelina's Croque Madame

With me recovering from food poisoning this week, food was far from being my number one priority. Nonetheless it was a tough choice this week. Which one of the nearly 100 food photos over a course of four days of eating do I highlight from Paris?  In the end I went with the Croque Madame from Angelina.

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #142: Opera Room

Room in Paris's Opera House

As many times as I have been to Paris there are still many, many places within the city that I have yet to visit.  Whenever I visit I try to balance a mixture of old favorites and new sites or experiences. I just returned from an extended weekend in Paris (arrived Thursday, left Monday) in which I dined with girlfriends, took two food tours and visited a studio for food classes; went to a museum, … [Read more...]
