Frenchie Friday - May 17, 2024

Sorry I missed last week, I was at a tradeshow in Denver all last week for my real day job. Mornings that started at 6 and evenings that ended at 11. Not much time for misadventuring!

France has a crazy 2 weeks! On the entertainment side, the French Swifties came out of the woodwork to attend Taylor Swift's 4 shows in Paris. She is in Lyon June 2 and 4th. Cannes film festival opened up, there is plenty of #MeToo and other world dramas, I personally enjoy the red carpet.

In case you did hear, Emily in Paris season 4 will be in 2 parts, August and September.

In real world news, France is on a manhunt for armed assailants who killed two prison officers and wounded three others in an ambush on a prison van, freeing a 30-year-old inmate and drug dealer known as "The Fly."

And of course, the riots in New Caledonia, a French territory.


On a brighter note, if you are going to be in Paris towards the end of the month, specifically May 26th, check out this picnic event on the Champs-Élysées! Here are my favorite picnic spots in Paris.

MZ Wallace Lookalike!

You all know that my MZ Wallace Metro bag (far left in the photo below) is my go-to for the plane. I love it, I swear by it. And I should as it cost me $275! Worth every penny BUT my darling Quince has a look-alike version for $89.90. RUN, don't walk to get it!

French cafe chairs from Target!

Don't have to go to Paris to enjoy a bistro/cafe chair, get them at Target, they are on sale right now!

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...
