C'est Bon

• 28 April 2007

We have a French guest staying with us this weekend before heading back to France after finishing up her first year at BYU. There is a lot of French speaking going on here now amongst everyone but myself (the only non-French speaking person here now), which is a lot of fun to witness. I really wish I could fit into her suitcase and jetset to Paris on Tuesday morning; however, I'll be starting personal training that day so I CAN fit into her suitcase next time :). With a rendevous on my mind, today's post's theme will be...you guessed it....Travel to Paris.

The New York Times has a great article today (see Travel section) about Steak Frites in Paris and the ongoing search for the best rendition. Yummy. They also offer up a "Paris Travel Guide" detailing what to do in 36 hours there, where to stay, eat, etc. Also, with the smoking ban in motion, Paris is a much better (and healthier) option these days.

My favorites in Paris:

1. Galeries Lafayette
2. any patisserie
3. Musee Jacquemart-Andre
4. Monoprix for Petit Bateau children's clothing
5. Musee Marmottan
6. La Regalade restaurant
7. Luxembourg Gardens

What are your favorites? I'd love to hear all about them...

I am obsessed with the Tour de France every July. My dream is to follow the entire tour for three weeks around France and then watch them ride onto the Champs-Elyees the final day!

Steph,
I have LOVED reading your blog and getting tips on Paris. We are headed to London and Paris next week for our 20th anniversary. I've never been to either and my cute husband said I could pick where we go even though he tried to persuade me to pick Hawaii! The hotel suggestions are great and we'll probably choose one off your list. Do you suggest buying a museum pass before we go (online)?
