La Rentree: The Return

Bonjour mes amis. Hello friends.

Bonne rentree!

La rentree is one of my favorite times of the year. It means “the return” and in France it is similar to “Back To School” in the United States but with a bit more expanded meaning. It also means back to routine, back to work, back to shops, cafes and boulangeries opening up after being closed for les vacanes in August. (Although some take their time off in July.) La rentree occurs the first part of September.

For me, it is almost a second New Year’s where I can get back on track with goals and intentions. It is like a re-set for the rest of the year.

This La Rentree is extra special. It is the relaunch The Paris Itinerary. The return so to speak.

I am thrilled to be back helping you with your Paris itinerary planning. Offering once again practical tips for visiting Paris so you can maximize your time and money and feel comfortable visiting the City of Light.

To get re-acquainted, here is a video telling the story of how The Paris Itinerary started.

The Paris Itinerary is growing to better help you check Paris off your bucket list.

You probably have been wondering where The Paris Itinerary has been. It’s been crickets for awhile.

Well…The Paris Itinerary is expanding which is so exciting but with growth comes growing pains!

Part of this expansion includes some additional resources to help you better plan your trip to Paris! This includes some itinerary planning and webinars. Don’t worry, the blog will still be around but just not a dedicated weekly post.

As a big merci beaucoup (thank you) for being a loyal and valuable reader, all launches will be announced to my email subscribers first! If you happened to have just found The Paris Itinerary be sure to sign up as a subscriber and get the free video on what to pack and how to pack for Paris in the fall and winter all in a carry on bag!

While The Paris Itinerary expands to better serve you, be sure to check out The Paris Itinerary Facebook page. There I share blog posts as well as great curated information from other sources. Don’t forget on Facebook, you have to like or comment on the posts to still see The Paris Itinerary on your Facebook feed even if you have liked the page. You can also set up a notification so you know when something new has posted.

Starting soon, The Paris Itinerary will be more regular on Pinterest. You can also find The Paris Itinerary on Instagram and Twitter so whichever social media channel you prefer, I will be there!

Now, I have a question for you. What do you want to see or learn more about that will help you check Paris off your bucket list?

Houston…we have a problem.

Just like that one of my computer programs crashed. Hmph!

Since blog posts are best with pictures, I am delaying my post until I get things straightened out…which hopefully, won’t be very long.

Meantime, if you missed my last two posts in this series, here they are…

1.) Don’t get scammed!

2.) Why you should visit Sainte Chapelle Cathedral.

Also, be sure to join me on Facebook Live!

La rentree! The return back.

Bonjour mes amis!

Return back from hiatus

Return back from hiatus

It is almost time for the French tradition of “la rentree.” That time in the beginning of September when everyone returns back from the fun and sun of summer and gets back into the routine of fall.

Back in May, I announced that The Paris Itinerary was going on hiatus until September. My sweet dog had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and I needed (and wanted) to spend time caring for him.

Sadly, he did pass away this summer. He was such a great boxer and we miss him terribly.

Goodbye

I truly appreciate all the sweet words of support and condolences I received this summer.

The Paris Itinerary will be officially back in action this September kicking off “la rentree” with a series about visiting historic and magnificent churches of Paris. The ones that aren’t Notre Dame. 🙂

I look forward to seeing you then!

See you in September!

You may have been wondering what happened to your weekly posts this past April. If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember back in October I mentioned one of my dogs was sick. Unfortunately, in April, he was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer.

The month of April came and went without me even really noticing and I realized that as my husband and I work to fight our dog’s cancer that I really need to put The Paris Itinerary blog posts on hiatus.

I will still be active on Instagram and Facebook and on occasion there may be a guest contributor on the blog. I also hope to tackle some much neglected behind the scenes maintenance so that when I am back, The Paris Itinerary is better than ever.

Right now, the plan is to start blog posts again in September corresponding with the French tradition of “a la rentrée” which colloquially means “see you in September!”

I know suspending blog posting for this long is the kiss of death to blogs but taking care of my dog is now a top priority. I hope you understand. There is lots of great information from past post to help you as you plan your Paris itinerary.

Until September…

Bises (kisses),
