Paris in the Post!

In the 10 years since this blog launched, we have seen our various contributors get married, pop out bi-national kids, and/or become citizens. Others return to their home country after a sojourn in France. Others still have turned their personal blog about life in Paris into a bona fide career. Such is the case with […]

Tippy Top!

  Aw, shucks. We’re thrilled to be named the top expat blog for France by The accolade actually goes to all the blogs you see to your right under the header “The Paris Blog Bloggers.” Those writers and photographers, who each run their own blog about life in the City of Light, are like the […]


A reader who lives in the States, and is apparently more Francophile than even me, has sent in his photo and asked that we publish it. How could I say no? He looks so French with his fisherman’s sweater, hair matted from infrequent washing, mechant little mustache, and a tongue sticking out to either French […]

An Odd Request

I often get weird emails requesting I mention something-or-other on my blog. I rarely pay them any attention because I’m not interested.

Thanks, Paducah

Next month The Paris Blog turns 5 years old. This little snapshot from our “Who’s On” traffic report shows me the blog is reaching exactly who I wanted it to.

Restaurant Central

A friend of mine had a health scare a few years ago. “I decided if the doctor told me it was terminal, I would move to Paris and eat myself to death.” Luckily, she recovered. But for some people, a terminal diagnosis is not a prerequisite for a trip to the City of Light led […]

Blog-ebrity David Lebovitz

On a hot and humid night in July 2007, I made my first visit to Hidden Kitchen. The “underground supper club” was brand new and still buzzing from a write-up that had appeared on Chocolate & Zucchini. I had brought a new boyfriend and was trying to convince him that I was cool and cosmopolitan. […]

Yelp Arrives in France

Ladies and gents, I’m pleased to introduce you to my new baby —— Yelp France! Yelp is a website that connects people to great local businesses. Its purpose in life is to give people a platform to share their favorite (and not so favorite) addresses with those in their community. That means straight talking, no-nonsense, authentic […]
