I’m not going to say the French rail strike wasn’t a headache, because it was. Oh, it was…but it was also the cause of new opportunities and new experiences. I wouldn’t exactly recommend you try to go to France (or any country) in the midst of a massive transit strike (maybe, you know…wait a few months, unless you’re only going to Paris, in which case you’ll be fine), but I will certainly say that if you already have a trip scheduled during one, you should just adapt and go for it anyway. We ended up having a great time and added some interesting and enriching experiences to the trip. Yeah, parking was a pain in the butt at times. Yeah, driving sucks more than just sitting on a train, reading a book, and watching the world go by, but it was interesting, and there was also something to the freedom of being able to stop when we wanted to stop, and explore when we wanted to explore. And there’s something to that as well.

Paris is known of the city of lights…the city of love. While it’s true that it’s an amazing, romantic, beautiful place to explore, there’s more than one trick to this pony. Paris is also edgy, hip, full of history, and more. It’s also a place where some pretty creepy things can be found if you look just below the surface. The good news for you lovers of creepy attractions out there, is that there are a lot of these places that the public can actually visit. Yes please!
So, if you’re like me and you’re interested in seeing a little bit of the creepier side to Paris, read on…

I was happy to learn that, thankfully, this North American driver was in for roughly similar rules of the road and generally easy driving. Still, there are a few things I found helpful to know ahead of time, and a few things I learned along the way, so I wanted to write up this post for all of you who might be heading to France and hitting the open road. So, without further adieu, here are the things you should know if you’re planning on driving in France…

When you’re celiac like me, dining out can be a stressful experience. You’re essentially putting the fate of your health into the hands of a kitchen who may or may not understand celiac disease or…worse…may not care enough to take necessary precautions. Thankfully, there are some pretty great places around the city that take good care to accommodate us. Hooray!
