Who loves a Kebab?

When I lived in Paris the first time (for 3 years), I worked from 11am till 7pm, so I’d go out for drinks and dinner with workmates and friends after work.

Sometimes we’d forget dinner and just have a lot of fun over a lot of cocktails :-)

We’d definitely need to find something to eat late in the evening, and one of my favourite things was to find the best kebab in Paris! That was a long time ago, and now someone else has made a list of the current great places to grab a kebab — the page is in French, but I’ve translated the text at the top of the page for you:

Who did not wander the streets after a night of drinking, in search of a good kebab to mop up its excess alcohol? Obviously, they are far from all good … But here, in any case, is a small selection of kebab, falafel, dürüm — delicious and perfect to fill the empty hunger.

Joyeux Noel means Merry Christmas!

Joyeux Noel means Merry Christmas – Happy Holidays to one and all!

Teena HughesBonjour a tous! Hello one and all! Today I’d like to share a couple of things with you:

  1. my Message from Santa
  2. and a new PDF download in French to help you build on your language skills
  3. some Christmas in Paris videos
  4. what to do in gai Paree over the holidays
  5. a few new French lessons — I hope you like them :-)

Here’s my Message from Santa — whatever you celebrate  — the holidays, Christmas, Hannukkah or anything else — my message to you comes from the hearyt – enjoy yourself and share the love with family and friends!


Things happening in Paris over the Holidays

December | Christmas  |  January in Paris!

What about New Year’s Eve in gai Paree?

Look at this amazing list of events >>


Christmas Lights in Paris 2016

Have a look at Harper’s Bazasar video: “From the twinkling lights and stunning architecture to the festive Eiffel Tower, check out just how beautiful Paris is during Christmas time. ”


The famous Shopping experience, Les Galleries Lafayette, looks extraordinary in this video!

“Les balcons, la coupole et le toit des Galeries Lafayette décorées pour les fêtes de noël (balconies, dome and roof of the Galeries Lafayette decorated for Christmas) année 2016.”


Paris Christmas Markets

“December is a special time in Paris, when days are short and you bundle up for the cold to stroll down busy streets or enjoy the lights twinkling along the Seine.
Travel across the continent and you’ll discover a spectacular selection of Christmas markets, with beautifully decorated log cabins and inviting beer halls, where you can cosy up with a warming glass of mulled wine.”

“But Christmas markets aren’t all about beer and bratwurst; they’re also the perfect place to pick up handmade gifts, ornate decorations and tasty sweet treats for your seasonal hamper.

Here’s the best Christmas markets in Europe, complete with jingle bells, mulled wine and gifts galore.” (Read more on Youtube)


Joyeux Noel! Merry Christmas!A new downloadable Frenchified Printable just for you!

I’ve created a shiny new PDF of French words based on the Christmas season, you can grab it here:

I hope these PDFs help you when you’re in Paris, or planning your trip, or just daydreaming about being in the city I love — gai Paree :-)


Speaking French With Green Peas

A new way to teach you a little bit of French, tongue-in-cheek, which I hope you enjoy!

Joyeux Noel means Merry Christmas with un petit pois

And this one:

Joyeux Noel means Merry Christmas with horses for courses

latte-parlez-vous-francais-frenchies-a-night-in-paris-dotcom-614x614Speaking of Speaking French …

I am still using DUOLINGO every day on my laptop (it’s an APP available for smart phones in many languages), and I am totally amazed at how much I’m enjoying polishing up on my French on a daily basis.

I don’t often come in contact with many/any French speakers, so it’s been great to keep the ol’ brain active and Frenchified.

Speaking of Frenchified, I have found a French Barista who makes my double-shot latte just right!

Here’s a coffee he made me recently — how cool is this?? How lucky am I? His name is Florent and he’s loving Australia so far; his English is excellent and I love to surprise him with some obscure French I’ve picked up over the years :-)

Do you have a French cafe near where you live, or do you get to speak with French people (if you’re not in a French-speaking location?? I’d love to hear about it – feel free to reply to my Newsletter email, post a Comment below or send a message on the website, or pop over to Facebook to say “Hello!”


Getting Around Paris — cheap as chips!

Not too keen on using the Metro or buses? Or simply in a hurry?

Or perhaps you’re a bit challenge with mobility and want to get around as quickly and easily as possible? I hurt my back before arriving in Paris last time, and reeeeally found it difficult to get around. LeCab made it so much easier for me!

LeCab is a car service which is like a taxi but much better, feels like a chauffeur service, and is so inexpensive! I’ve mentioned it before, but I still think it’s worth mentioning again :-)

  • 8 Euro for any one-way trip within Paris
  • 48 Euro to the airport (it’s like being in your own limousine!) and soooo worth the money!
  • pop over to https://www.lecab.fr/
  • make bookings via the App on your smart phone – easy peasy.

If you check it out, let me know what you think!

Au revoir mes amis (my friends)! Cheerio for now, and wherever you are in the world, may your holidays be filled with love and laughter and may all your dreams come true in the New Year!

Hugs across the miles!

Postcards from Paris September 2016

Postcards from Paris is a newsletter about the city I love!

Today’s Postcards from Paris September

A quick hello to new subscribers!

It’s always so wonderful to receive email notifications when new folks sign up for news about Paris — here are just a few of the names:

  • Bonnie, Donna, Linda, Delwyn, Debra, Gloria, Tamae, Michael, Marie, Durell, Darin, Susan, Joan, Lisa, Laura, Dawn, Graciele, Melody, Angela, Ashok, Linda.

Make sure to keep in touch — I’d love to hear from you :-)

Let’s just start by saying I WANT ONE OF THESE!

My favourite daily dose of French!

I added this free App to my iPhone and use it EVERY DAY! I love it! It only takes a few minutes, and it gives your brain a great workout to help you learn and remember.

It’s available for iPhone, Android, desktop and laptop Mac and Windows and more!

This is a very easy-to-use program, suitable for beginners with no experience, and is so helpful. Now that I’m practicing my French every day, it keeps the French language at the front of my memory and I’m thoroughly enjoying this little daily dose of gai Paree.

  • On your phone, go to the App Store and install DUOLINGO
  • on your computer, go to Duolingo.com

Want home-delivered breakfast?

Breakfast in Paris - Petit dejeuner

Oh wow — I cannot WAIT to check out this service when I’m next in Paris! Having breakfast delivered to my apartment would feel like the height of luxury :-) If you check it out, please do let me know!

breakfast delivery for Postcards from Paris

Speaking of food, here’s a cafe/restaurant I really liked

Les Nicois was within walking distance of the apartment I rented, and it became a favourite place to meet friends for dinner and drinks. Fab atmosphere, excellent food, great vibe — I highly recommend it!

 

LeCab Car and Driver App is a great alternative to taxis

A friend recommended I try out this App last time I was in Paris, and I did. Soooo much better than taxis — and each journey has a PRE-SET total fare, so if you’re stuck in traffic, it did not cost extra! I also used it as my preferred way to get back to the airport for my departure.  I usually use a mini-bus service which picks up other passengers along the way, so it takes longer and you have to be picked up much earlier than you’d like.  It’s also available on desktops and laptops, so I’ll be able to book a pick-up for my arrival when I next visit Paris — I’m loving this!

  • Fixed price :
    • CDG (Charles de Gaulle) airport to anywhere in Paris — 48 Euro (as at Sept 2016)
    • Within Paris — 8 Euro
  • https://www.lecab.fr/

The Chauffeurs were lovely, cars fabulous, iPad to do a spot of internet surfing, music — such a great way to get to the airport stress-free and on-time!

I love you my cabbage!

I love you my cabbage is translated from je t’aime, mon chou!

I love you my cabbage! Je t'aime mon chou!“Chou” is the French word for cabbage, and is pronounced as “shoo” — I love this little word and I use it a LOT!

“Choufleur” translates to cauliflower — chou + fleur (flower), and can also be used in many ways, not just for food.

  • “chou de Bruxelles” translates to Brussels sprout.

As an adjective “chou” can also mean gorgeous, adorable, lovely, cute, sweet, and is used as follows:

  • As a wonderfully delightful term of endearment, “Je t’aime, mon chou!” = “I love you, my gorgeous thing/person!”
  • “Mon petit chou!” translates to “My little cabbage!” meaning, “My gorgeous little thing/person!”

Paris Journal Notebook by Teena Hughes

My new Paris Journal Notebook has been published!

Paris Journal by Teena Hughes

Great news! Over the years I’ve had a few people contact me and ask about travel journals, and I’ve finally  published the first one, and I’m thrilled to bits!

C’est vachement fantastique! (That’s truly fantastic!)

In this first Paris Journal Notebook, the pages are formatted for Bullet Journal users who love tiny dots on the pages instead of lines.  The tiny dots help the users to sketch or write so that lines aren’t necessary.

Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, or just love the thought of Paris, this Journal is a great way to make notes, add sketches, or use your Bullet Journal skills to turn this into a book you can add to over time and treasure.


It’s available on amazon right now if you’d like to check it out — click the book below and please do let me know if you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you!

.
.

If you’d like to find out more about bullet journals, here’s a little video I found which might help explain it a bit.

What is a Bullet Journal?

French Word Vachement

The French word vachement means EXTREMELY, VERY or TRULY

French word vachement means TRULYVache is the French word for COW,so using the French word VACHEMENT makes you think you’re saying, “Cowly!” — but in fact, it’s quite different.

The word vachement really made me scratch my head when I first heard it and read it.

It also made me smile — a lot — and it’s a great little French adverb I now use ALL the time :-)

It works equally well with adjectives (descriptors) and verbs (“doing” words”).

 

“Il fait beau!” (translated to “It’s a beautiful day!”) becomes even better when you say:

  • “Il fait vachement beau!” which translates to “It’s a VERY beautiful day!”

Today’s Postcards from Paris

Walk with me as I look for Petit Dejeuner (breakfast) on a Sunday morning in September

I’ve just created a video of one of my Sunday mornings in gai Paree last September – here we go – walk with me?


The heart of Paris beats strong and is filled with love

Paris is alive and well, beautiful, exciting, filled with history, wondrous places, faces, things to do and see … and still holds my heart firmly in her hands :-)

After my visit in September, I was filled to overflowing with my Parisian-ness and basked in the glow of the love and friendships cemented for another year — in person rather than across the miles.

Postcards from Paris - Je Suis ParisWhen the bombings happened not long after I returned to Australia, I was stunned and shocked like the rest of the world.

I immediately reached out to all the folks I knew in Paris and other parts of France to make sure everyone and their loved ones were safe and sound.  It was a dreadfully stressful time for those I knew in Paris, and the weeks and months since have been hard for them still in so many ways.

To the brave and courageous Parisians, I say BRAVO! You showed strength in the face of adversity, through dreadful events that no-one should witness or be part of, and you are all in my thoughts every day.

I must admit I found it hard to write about Paris for quite a long time as everything I wanted to say or share somehow sounded frivolous, and that was the last thing I wanted it to be.

Today I feel like my heart has healed a little bit, and I wanted to reach out and say the Parisians are strong, but their hearts are still hurting too — we must continue to visit this beautiful city, not be afraid to travel, to experience life.

Meeting people in Paris is one of the all-time favourite things I love to do — shopkeepers, cafe staff, waiters, chefs, department store staff, people waiting for buses and taxis — I love to talk to everyone — it makes me feel more like I live there, and to feel part of a community when I’m there for a month or so, and it is all of these brave folks who are waiting for us to come back and embrace Paris again.

I’ll be there to see you in September 2016, Paris!
I promise!

I hope to see you there too if you can make it!


 

This video is fantastic! I just found it online and it’s captured the heart and soul of Paris — do you like it too??

French version:

found on:  http://lyricstranslate.com/en/lamour-et-moi-love-and-i.html

L’Amour et Moi

Je me fous des princes charmants
Leurs promesses je les oublie
Ces voleurs de sentiments
Au petit matin ils s’enfuient
Oh oh

Je parie sur les amants
Quand vient le printemps a Paris
Les mariés sont moins marrant
Ils te menottent à leurs vies
Ohoh

L’amour et moi ça fait deux
Ne tombez pas amoureux
L’amour et moi ce n’est qu’un triste jeu
Ne tomber pas amoureux
Envie d’entendre tout ce qu’il ne dit pas
Envie de bras chauds sous mes draps froids
L’amour et moi ça fait deux
Ne tombez pas amoureux
Ohohoh…

Mes amis sont des amants
Ils ne volent que mes envies
Les mariés trop exigeants
Avec le temps ils m’ennuient
Ohoh
Les mariés sont moins marrants
Ils te menottent à leurs vies
Je me lasse de ces amants
Ils ne t’aiment que pour la nuit
Ohoh

L’amour et moi ça fait deux
Ne tombez pas amoureux
L’amour et moi ce n’est qu’un triste jeu
Ne tomber pas amoureux
Envie d’entendre tout ce qu’il ne dit pas
Envie de bras chauds sous mes draps froids
L’amour et moi ça fait deux
Ne tombez pas amoureux
Ohohoh…

L’amour et moi sa fait deux
Ne tomber pas amoureux

L’amour et moi sa fait deux
Ne tomber pas amoureux

Ne tombez pas amoureux

English Translation:

http://lyricstranslate.com/en/lamour-et-moi-love-and-i.html

Love and I

I don’t care about delightful princes
I forget their promises
These feelings thieves
They escape at early morning
Oh oh

I bet on lovers
When spring comes in Paris
Married people are less funny
They handcuff you to their lives
Oh oh

Love and I don’t go together
Don’t fall in love
Love and I is just a sad game
Itch of hearing everything which it doesn’t tell
Itch of warm arms under my cold sheets
Love and I don’t go together
Don’t fall in love
Ohohoh…

My friends are lovers
They only steel my desires
Too much demanding married people
They are bored in time
Ohoh
Married are less funny
They handcuff you to their lives
I get tired of these lovers
They only love you for night
Ohoh

Love and I don’t go together
Don’t fall in love
Love and I is just a sad game
Itch of hearing everything which it doesn’t tell
Itch of warm arms under my cold sheets
Love and I don’t go together
Don’t fall in love
Ohohoh…

Love and I don’t go together
Don’t fall in love

Love and I don’t go together
Don’t fall in love

Don’t fall in love
