Don’t pack your Paris trip without a light jacket! Yes it’s gotten warmer here and the cherry blossoms are still on the trees (barely) but the weather can be a bit temperamental these days.
As per usual, we’ve compiled the best of things to do every month and this May you’ll be happy to find the regular where to eat, drink and stay, but also a list of museums with gardens to wander if you’re in the mood to get lost in some pretty Parisian places.
We just got to 5000 likes on Facebook and I can’t thank you all enough, from the bottom of my heart. For all your comments and emails too. You mean the world to me as I often forget how a little bit of me sharing my love of food, travel and Paris can touch and enrich others.
You make me work and also write better for you! Here’s to 5000 more! bisoussss…
Brasserie Lola just opened their long awaited second VEGAN

the maison Balzac.
