Frenchie Friday - April 5, 2024

By the time you are reading this I will be on a plane to Paris. We are heading to Portugal for a month, bookended by 2 weekends in Paris. And of course, as I always warn you about, we have not 1 but 2 strikes to navigate through.

Saturday there will be both a student-led demonstration at the sports ministry to denounce the removal of residents from student housing during the 2024 Summer Olympics AND the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) are back at Place de la Bourse to demonstrate various issues and demands, such as a referendum on France’s withdrawal from the EU and NATO, living costs and the implementation of a constitutional amendment.

Always have a Plan B and C in Paris!

BUT the cherry blossoms started blooming 2 days ago, so that's going to make up for it. We are staying in the 17th arrondissement so it is just a short walk to Parc Monceau to check out the beauties!

Keep up on my adventures (and misadventures) in Paris and Portugal on Instagram.

Audrey Hepburn's Paris

Two books have released since the beginning of 2024 covering Audrey Hepburn's Paris. An article I was reading this week in Grazia magazine this week reminded me I had a dusty draft on this very topic which I pulled out from the depth of my backlog, polished off and published this morning. Here's my version of Audrey Hepburn's Paris.

If you love Audrey as much as I do, you definitely will want to check out Audrey Hepburn in Paris and Audrey in Paris as well!

Pour Le Weekend...

What I packed for 1 month in Portugal

Packing light, but making it fashionable! Here's my capsule wardrobe for month-long adventure (and misadventures, it’s me right?) in Portugal, featuring my favorite brands and tried-and-true classics that never let me down. From wrinkle-free shirts to versatile denim that's been with me through countless journeys, every piece tells a story. Who says you can't travel stylishly with just a few key pieces?

I am going to soak up as much of Paris as I can in a weekend! The weather is supposed to cooperate so we will be out and about walking, eating, shopping, doing it all!

We get to Portugal Sunday night to start our month, I am looking forward to it!

How about you?

Bon Weekend!

of Misadventures with Andi

I am a content creator, storyteller, and marketer. Oh, and a Francophile which means I love all things French! I write about travel, food, and France, including aspiring to follow a French lifestyle. If Paris is your jam, I am here for you with all the deets. But I also do a lot of outdoor adventures looking for places that are off the beaten path in the U.S. as well.

Frenchie Friday - June 14, 2024 We had an AMAZING weekend in Charlotte! It was nice to go away without a plan, something we don't do a lot! Lesson learned, sometimes winging is fun too! France elections woo-wie! My gal pal, author Lindsey Tramuta has a great series of articles that she uses to detail French cultural and political happenings. She does a really good job of explaining the recent French elections. Also, another good article from Le Monde: Snap elections in France: How it works,...

Frenchie Friday - June 7, 2024 Did anyone watch any of the D-Day ceremony from Normandy yesterday? I did. And I could not help being moved by what I saw and heard. The Normandy American Cemetery is so beautiful on a regular day, but to see it full of veterans who were there is just amazing! My friend Kristin survived her rain-soaked 10-day trip to Paris (and Lyon). She was there for the French Open and did a fantastic write-up of her experience. If you ever consider attending the Roland...

Check out her stories to follow her adventures, she is headed to Lyon next to see Taylor Swift! Look, because of the Olympics, there are A LOT of Paris guides...
