5 Things I Would Do Differently: Paris The Second Time Around

Lately, I’ve been dreaming of Paris. As much as I want to experience an abundance of cultures and be a digital nomad in other countries, I can’t get Paris off my mind. I think I have to go back before I can adventure to another faraway fantasy of mine. (Disclosure: Paris is always a good idea.) For my second journey to the City of Lights and … Continue reading 5 Things I Would Do Differently: Paris The Second Time Around

The Great Gatsby As Told By Nick Carraway Is “Fake News”

I had the pleasure of visiting (the outside of) one of the apartments of F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, lived in when I was in Paris. On a quaint street near the Arc de Triomphe and Champ Elysées, there lies 14 Rue de Tilsitt. It doesn’t seem like much and there is no plaque to mark the famous literary location that Hemingway would uncomfortably … Continue reading The Great Gatsby As Told By Nick Carraway Is “Fake News”
