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?

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…

Joyeux Anniversaire! Happy Birthday!


Forget about those terrible twos! The Paris Itinerary has officially made it through the TERRIFIC TWOs!

To celebrate this milestone, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane…

The very first post – you know, when only my mom was reading: Travel tip: Day 1 in Paris and what to do with jet-lag.

The most popular post: Travel tip: The best kept secret on where to buy Louvre entrance tickets.

The post no one is really reading but should be. Maybe I need to jazz up the title. How to avoid those pesky add-on bank fees.

The most popular Instagram post: Even if it is a Monday.

And a shout out to The Paris Itinerary’s biggest fan (other than my mom, of course)…Kelly from A Lovely Life, Indeed. She is always commenting, tweeting and sharing! Merci Beaucoup Kelly!

Now on to year three…

Did you know there is more to The Paris Itinerary than just this blog?  While the blog is the meat of the information, Instagram is the potatoes. Over there I share photos, videos and sometimes other tips that may not have made it to the blog.

As Paul Harvey used to say “and now for the rest of the story.” Check out the rest of the story here.

The Paris Itinerary 2015 blog post wrap up

2015 year in review

It is hard to believe we are almost two weeks away from closing the books on 2015.

As always, I am so grateful for your support! The Paris Itinerary is nothing without its readers.

In case you joined the party late or life got a little in the way, here are a few posts you may have missed.

From January: Packing is ALWAYS a hot topic when going to Paris. Here is what I DON’T pack.

From February: It was radio silence in February as I prepared for year deux of The Paris Itinerary. If you really want to read the only February post…here it is

From March: Four people to contact to let them know you are traveling to Paris.

From April: A video review of my FAVORITE travel bag

From May: Probably the most important thing you need to know if you plan to visit The Louvre – where to buy your tickets. Trust me, you want to know this tip!

From June: Where to get the best FREE city/metro of Paris.

From July: Oh my! Where to stay in Paris? I have a  hotel review AND an apartment rental review!

From August: August was all about the French tradition of taking a long “les vacances.” Here is my favorite “Paris Pause.”

From September: If checking out the largest Paris flea market, Marche aux Puces St. Ouen, is on your to-do list, then you’ll want to read how to get there including how to avoid “the gauntlet” of aggressive street peddlers.

From October: Travel gear! Need I say more?

From November: “Fluctuant Nec Meritur” which means “tossed by the waves but not sunk.” Je suis Paris. I am Paris.

From December: Planning a trip to Paris in 2016? Tips for saving up for your trip. It is easier than you think.

As we get ready to kick off 2016, let me know if there are topics you’d like me to cover!
