Morocco in Paris

Le Méchoui du Prince

36 Rue Monsieur le Prince

Price | $$ (€18-23)

So, I’ll start out by telling the whole truth—I didn’t find this place on my own. Authentic Moroccan food is not a cuisine I experience often. These past several days, I have had the amazing opportunity to work in France. Hind, a stagiaire in the law firm where I am working for the summer invited me out to experience the taste of her home. Truthfully, it has been one of the best meals I have had in Paris. She assured me that if you want to try authentic Moroccan food while in Paris, this is the place to go.

Giverny & Claude Monet

Giverny

One of the most beautiful settings I have ever set foot in was the house & gardens of famous French artist Claude Monet. While I didn’t know too much about his art or impressionism before visiting, it was still extremely captivating. His legacy is beautifully preserved in a remote location in Normandy between Vernon and Gasny. If ever you have the chance to visit this northern region of France – you must see this hidden treasure.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take pictures inside of his home, but I still tried to capture as much of the grounds as possible.

Strolling around ‘le jardin’ it’s like stepping right into one of Monet’s paintings

Life in Rouen

 

Rouen

Just over a year ago, I set off on a life changing adventure to study for four months in Rouen, France. Now, (mostly) everyone I know describes their study abroad experience as “life-changing”. So, it gets old I know! But, it reassured my passions for international affairs, traveling, and, most relevant, cuisine. When visiting Rouen, France (just a little over an hour outside of Paris), you’ll notice a number of little treasures that stand out from the rest of the city.
