It's That Time Again: Paris/Provence



I know some of you are as excited as I am!

It's September, time to eat and drink and take in the sites of Paris.
Our annual trip to my favorite city (second to New York, of course).

This time, not only are we staying on the left bank (creature of habit), but we are going to sunny Provence for the first time. Taking the train midweek and staying in Aix-en-Provence.

Of course I will keep you posted as much as possible.

I've brushed up on my French lessons and am ready and armed!

"Je voudrais un verre de vin rouge, s'il vous plait".

"Ou sont les toilettes, s'il vous plait?"


("I would like a glass of red wine" and "where are the toilets please?").

Have fun Stacey. I always look forward to your trips. You sure know how to travel in style.

P.S. You'll love Aix. Their Thursday flower market is fabulous.

Oh my god, I kind of hate you. Be sure to go to Arles while you are in Provence. The market there is amazing and incredible Van Gogh museum.

You couldn't pick a better destination than Aix for a second culinary adventure in France. Pity I missed you in Paris, I was there last week. There are plenty of new restaurants and amazing little "epiceries", you'll see. :-)

J'ai vécu a Aix durant 6 mois, lorsque j'avais 18 ans; j'étais censée étudier Sciences-Po mais je passais mon temps à déguster les succés a la crème et toutes sortes de pains et friandises. J'ai pris 10 kilos et je suis rentrée a la maison...
I am trying to give you a heads-up on French speaking! Have fun. Aix is beautiful; don't forget to eat calissons!
