What happens when you visit the doc in France

After days of garlic, ginger and old family remedies, girl finally gave in to peer pressure (and weird looks from strangers) and went to the doctor. What she was met with is exactly what she was afraid of – a bag full of unpronounceable medicine and not a clear answer to what is precisely wrong … Continue reading

I spy…a pharmacy! And another!

As Americans, November signals the beginning of the holiday season, Thanksgiving, mid-terms and pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks. As Parisians in training, November has a new significance: the beginning of relentless cold symptoms. Back in California neither of us got sick often – perhaps one killer 24 hour bug and we were done for the … Continue reading

Be careful what you ask for

But everyone eats carrots!” After meeting an inspiring Southern belle of a vegetarian, girl decided to give it a try…for 40 straight days. Aka: no meat. Confession II: in the boy-girl house, … Continue reading

Todo, we’re not near a gym anymore

As Californians, we’ve successfully underestimated the wonders of having a gym as readily available as a Starbucks coffee. Boy and girl had memberships to some of the finest gyms the Bay Area has to offer and we miss them almost as much as a spicy enchilada. Of all the amazing things Paris has to offer, … Continue reading
