City of Lights & Love 💡 💕

Happy Thursday Hidden Gem Travel community! I was in the city of lights and love one year ago this month and so am sharing some inspiration you guessed it, about Paris this week.  

I’ve written past newsletters about Paris, including how to take a trip this summer for the Olympics.  This week, I’ll be sharing a link to some videos and articles that will inform and inspire you for a future trip.  

This week’s newsletter is short as I’m still in Europe and will soon have more on to share about where I am and what I’m doing.  Stay tuned!

Interest piqued? Read on for scoop about Paris…

Perfect Paris

Inside the link below is curated content about Paris including videos taking you to a gorgeous food market, the Champs-Elysée, and a Paris in motion video that will make you feel like you’re there!  

Love Podcasts?  There’s a link to listen to the ‘Resurrecting Notre-Dame de Paris’ by National Georgraphic.  When I was in Paris last year, you could see the reconstruction, and this year the new spire is up and the cathedral is on track to reopen in part this year!

France Itineraries

I work with a fantastic French partner to curate land-based itineraries across the country for clients.  And if you read my recent newsletters, you know that you can take a river cruise or barge trip through France’s scenic waterways.  

However and wherever you want to travel in France, I can not only make it happen but uplevel your experience.  Vive la France!!

💎 Hidden Gem Tip:  Airline Stopover Programs

What do Lisbon, Istanbul, Dubai, Panana City, and Reykjavik have in common?  They are stopover cities for their partner airlines (example Iceland Air). 

Some international airlines allow a stop in a layover city which can last between 24 hours up to 10 days, details vary by the carrier.  It’s a great way to conveniently experience a place that is on your way to your main destination.
