- The Truth About Gallic Gals 8 years ago French women are surrounded by myth. They’re supposed to be the sexiest, the chic-est, the most feminine, the best mothers. The list goes on and isn’t helped by recent books like “French women don’t get fat” and “French children don’t throw food.” Sickeningly smug titles that can...
- Paris party-ers to elect new Nightlife Mayor 8 years ago Parisians to the polling station! This Saturday night will see the City of Lights hold it’s very first election for Nightlife Mayor! Finally Paris will have someone to represent the night-owls and maybe even revive Paris nightlife to its former glory. I can’t be the only one who finds the...
- Le British Craze 8 years ago Having lived in France for five years, the number of times I’ve heard my home cuisine insulted by a French person is too many to count.

Some very useful insights on how to navigate through the world of Parisian culture. The essential Gare du Nord survival guide was a particular highlight!
