Are you HIP??? Well now you CAN be... The Hip Paris Blog

Amy Thomas writes for a blog with a catchy name- "Hip Paris Blog." Hey, that's pretty cool, I think! Especially since I will be in Paris for most of the summer this year (a first, I know). Partner in crime- fellow friend and blogger/neighbour/San Diegan, Barbara in Sceaux - and I will be traipsing through Paris most of July and part of August and this blog is just PERFECT for us to get a head start on what we need to see and do...

Sure, I've been here for just about 4 years... and I know a ton of really cool places to do in Paris, but I need something more now to discover some things off the beaten track. So, after finding this cool blog (Thanks to Cat), I'm intent on having a viable list of things to see/do this summer in Paris. I will be blogging the adventures and experiences as the happen, so y'all just have to stay tuned to see where we end up...

Please have a look here HIP PARIS BLOG and enjoy what the writers have to say about Paris, one of the worlds best cities to travel to (NO, I'm not at all biased or partial- just stating the obvious).

And while you're at it... Please check out the latest article by Amy about the CUPCAKE CRAZE now sweeping Pah -ree!! And, if ANYONE of you is interested in joining me for a "Cupcake Crawl" this summer... please feel free to comment or send me an email.

I've been reading that blog for a while now and was just thinking I should go out one day just to visit all those cupcakes shops!!! Didn't think to call it a cupcake crawl! Genius. Anyway, let's do it :)

Hey Andrea...

Should we do it when you come back from your trips? I'll get all the info and we can do the "crawl." I borrowed the term from "pub crawl" - have you heard that term before? Well, I just took the term and applied it to cupcakes! : ) I think others have used the term before me, though.. So, I didn't come up with it myself!
Take care... Leese

You should have just said, 'yes, I am a genius'.

Of course I know what a pub crawl is. Ferbent and I do a similar kind of thing when we travel, but at cafes. We'll sit and have a drink, then move on and sit at the next cafe, then the next, lol. Nice way to spend a day :)

Yes, I think we can do this when I get back. Definitely a good idea. Lets not forget!

Add me to the cupcake crawl list!
