To welcome the famous vintage, my friends and fellow American expats in France, Marie and Emily, are co-hosting a truly unique and amazing event in Paris next Thursday November 15th, 5:00-8:30pm local time. It will be a 3.5 hour walking tour starting in Paris 11ème (meeting point confirmed via email after registration), with only 30 minutes on your feet and the rest of the time spent indulging at two Parisian restaurants and three Parisian bars. The registration fee is an absolute deal given all that you’ll get with the tour.
Both Marie and Emily have a ton of experience in Paris and are a wealth of knowledge. They are fantastic tour guides as well and know the ins and outs of Parisian life.
Learn more about the tour, Marie & Emily, and registration details here. It will sell out fast – it’s for small groups in personalized and intimate settings. Please reach out to them for any questions before booking: email@example.com.
As you all know, this site is dedicated to everyone interested in international living and expat life in France – not just for American citizens.
But today we celebrate the national holiday of the USA, Independence Day. America turns 242 today – ever since the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
The US very much would not be a country without the economic and military power of France – essential for the American victory in the Revolutionary War. I encourage you to read about General Gilbert du Motier Marquis de Lafayette, and “Democracy in America” by Alexis de Tocqueville. Thomas Jefferon’s biography is also a must-read for any history buff. They all help to illustrate the close relations the US has had with France – our oldest allies.
The US and the Allies have also stood by the French – helping notably in the World War II. The French remember this – and I encourage you to visits the Normandy Beaches. It’s powerful.
