La Rentree: The Return


Standing on the glass floor at the Eiffel Tower

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.

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.


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!
