It’s July, and we’re going to Paris. By we, I mean a group of fellow writers. And you, of course if you want to come along for the ride. Paris in July – a month long celebration of Paris – is in its fifth year, and the co-hosts Karen, Tamara, Vicki, Bellezza and Adria have
Thanks to late spring rains, the grass was bright and lush. Perfect for kicking back.
You know that moment when you discover your crush likes the same band as you? The same ice cream flavor? The same precocious, irreverent 19th century boy-poet? You know, the little things. On our second date, midway through a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream, Evan and I bonded over a mutual affinity for

It was a busy summer, and we are a bit behind schedule, but the latest volume of the Paris Journal is live. Volume Two takes you to the twin islands at the heart of the city, the Île St. Louis and Île de la Cité. The day begins moments before dawn at the Cité train
The Paris Journal is live in the App store! We’ve already received a lot of wonderful feedback, and we’d like to thank you very much for that. Our main driver for the project was your experience. We wanted to deliver something that mimics what would catch your eye on a walk as closely as possible,
To provide a little background on how The Paris Journal came about, I wanted to share a little of the long process that lead us here, including a few failures along the way. Although there are many things about this project that are breaking new ground for us, the aesthetic point of view behind it
After many months, THIS is happening in two weeks. Coming to iPads and iPhones May 14. We can’t wait to show you more!
The Pont Saint-Louis is no stranger to entertainers. From a lone guitarist to jazz bands, there is usually something or someone to listen to should you want a place to pause and polish off your ice cream. A few days ago, we were on our way back to our apartment and this gentleman was setting
