Frenchie Friday - April 26, 2024

Our last week in Portugal! The weather had been incredible this month until this week. It has rained on and off most of the time with a few windows of sunshine. We have made the best of it. It didn't prevent us from enjoying all the AMAZING food and wine!

Today we head back to Paris and then Saturday I head home for a quick stop to do laundry before heading to Denver for a business event. Mr. Misadventures is staying in France another week.

It's May, an interesting month in France. Right now it is super cold and rainy so bring layers (my Quince cashmere tee and cardigan has been miraculous) along with a raincoat (this is mine). Also shoes with a grip. I brought 3 pairs of Jambu and no slips!

There are lots of holidays so if you are visiting be aware. And as it gets closer and closer to the Olympics things are getting real!

Also, as a reminder as I just helped a reader navigate this for their trip. June 6 is the 80th anniversary of D-Day so not the best time to visit this area of Normandy unless you have a planned itinerary and reservations for the cemeteries etc (they will be closed on the 5th as well).

J.Crew in St Tropez, J'adore!

Can't keep my eyes of the latest campaign from J. Crew. As soon as I am back in the U.S. I am grabbing a few of these pieces!

Maybe pick up a little something, something for Mother's Day! Otherwise, there are plenty of gift ideas in my Gift Guide for Spring.

Pour Le Weekend...

Quick turnaround in Raleigh! Home Saturday night, leaving Sunday afternoon for Denver.

How about you?

Bon Weekend!

Bonjour! I'm Andi Fisher.

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...

Frenchie Friday - May 31, 2024 The last day of May - WOW! This week I have been following my gal pal Kristin of Camels & Chocolate around Paris as she navigates rain and pharmacy strikes while attempting to enjoy the French open.

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...
