Hello everyone! I’m actually also sneaking this post on to my An Alien Parisienne Wordpress blog via my Posterous account, someplace I experiment now and again with events and publicity about events in Paris.

I wanted to let you know about an article I have written as a guest over at the AnyTrip blog.

AnyTrip is a London-based, budget-travel, online booking agency, and while I have not yet used their services, I am really impressed with the way they contacted me to be a guest writer for their site, and impressed with what they offer at their site. Many other terrific bloggers and writers have also participated in doing articles for this month’s Love Paris Giveaway. There are four chances this September to win a trip to Paris with AnyTrip’s Love Paris giveaway. For each prize, AnyTrip will set you and a friend up with a two-night stay at a Paris hotel, an activity, and £150/€170 in travel vouchers for the return trip to Paris.

For information on how to enter as well as the terms and conditions, visit the AnyTrip Love Paris post.

You have until September 30 to enter, so hustle on over to the site!

For some juicy personal news, please keep reading! Continue reading

Paris Plages, La Villette (19th arr.) – July 24, 2010

Summertime.

It’s still here in Paris, but in weird ways. Today (it was Tuesday when I started this…), for example, is cloudy with a high of  21°C/70°F. Not really summer-like temps and atmosphere. I’d love to feel a sunshiny 28°C/82°F with humidity below 70%. Maybe a slight breeze. Warm enough to wear a sleeveless top, but pleasant enough that going outside does not feel like going into a sauna and/or steam bath.

Yeah — for those kinds of summertime conditions, Europe is not a good place, I guess, unless it is maybe on Corsica or the Côte d’Azur. Maybe I need to think about moving to somewhere more equatorial someday.

Still, there is a lot of fun going on now that the kiddies have been out of school for a couple of weeks and people are in chillaxin’ vacances mode.

Paris Plages is one of those Paris events that is a sure sign summer is here.
