Whisk away to Paris from the comfort of your home!

Whisk away to Paris from the comfort of your home!

· · 2 comments
It's starting to feel like summer. Usually that means planning summer holidays; but, this year is a little different.
 
Many of you reach out to me because you have a trip coming up and want to know how to pack. I was planning a trip to Spain this summer, but, alas, it's not in the cards.
 
If you want to scratch that travel itch, but can't leave the house, there are other ways to be whisked away. 
 
This week, let's go to one of my all time favorites, the city of light, Paris!
 
5 Steps to spend the afternoon in Paris while at home:
 
1. Croissant and cafe au lait. Brew yourself a coffee and enjoy an afternoon croissant. If you're feeling ambitious (and can actually find flour), you can find a recipe to make them here. BUT, if you want to do something easier, both Whole Foods and Trader Joes have frozen croissants that are pretty good. Take them out around 10AM, let them rise, and enjoy straight out of the oven.
 
2. Put on your favorite scarf. Nothing is more Parisian than wearing a scarf. I even have a video about how to tie it the French way.
 
3. Listen to French radio. One of my favorite stations to listen to is TSF Jazz - a radio station out of Paris. They play jazz, obviously, but it's the DJs talking in French between songs that whisks me away to France. It streams online for free.
 
4. Take a virtual tour of the Louvre. Enjoy some art while you listen to jazz and enjoy your croissant. You definitely can't experience that in real life - there's no way they'd let you near the Mona Lisa with a cup of coffee!
 
5. Finally, enjoy some culinary adventures through Paris with chef Rachel Khoo. She is British, and her show aired on the BBC in 2012. I LOVE it because not only are the dishes mouthwatering, but you get to see a bit of Paris. She also simplifies French food, which is often thought of as painfully laborious. You can watch one of the episodes here.
 
Enjoy your "trip" to Paris, let me know how it goes, and bonne journée!
