Paris Tourist Office
Official website. This is where to start when planning your trip to Paris, especially if you've never been there before: where to stay, eat, and shop; museums and temporary exibits; practical info.
Secrets of Paris
Heather’s Paris calendar and resource guide are invaluable to plan your next trip to Paris. She’s provided ad-free travel journalism for 20 years! I subscribe to her monthly newsletter; always informative.
The Jet-Lag Diet
I swear by this! It used to take me at least a week to get in synch when traveling back to France but I have followed the Argonne jet-lag diet since 1984, to astonishing results. No pills: just a slight adjustment to your diet 4 days prior to departure to help reset your circadian rhythms. Scientific and practical.
Still don't know whether a fever of 102ºF requires a visit to the doctor's? How many centiliters in a cup of liquid? You need this unit converter! Free website and app for your smartphone. It even handles currency conversions.
Wise (formerly Transferwise)
Since we moved back to France, Rick and I have used Wise extensively to move funds between our American and French bank accounts. It's fast and convenient. Most of all, they use the real exchange rate, without any mark-up: it's the cheapest way to transfer funds internationally. Use our link to get a free transfer.
Pet Travel Store
International travel with a furry companion requires numerous travel documents that vary depending on pet, destination, and airline. We got our documents from the Pet Travel Store when we relocated to France with our dog. Very, very helpful.
