Paris in July 2022: In Which I Plan Out My Month

Paris in July starts now! I am co-hosting Paris in July this year with the wonderful Tamara from Thyme for Tea.

The aim of the month is to celebrate our French experiences through reading, watching, listening, observing, cooking and eating all things French!

There are no rules or targets in terms of how much you need to do or complete in order to be a part of this experience – just blog about anything French and you can join in! Some ideas might include;

  • reading a French-themed book – fiction or nonfiction,
  • watching a French movie,
  • listening to French music,
  • cooking French food,
  • experiencing French, art, architecture, and travel
  • tasting French wine, or testing French cocktails
  • celebrating le quatorze juillet or Bastille Day
Whatever it is that you love about France---share it with us all! And pass the word...

Tamara's signup post is here.

So what are my plans for Paris in July? Here are some of the things I might do...
