For Tyler’s birthday, I signed us up for a wine tasting class in Paris at Ô Chateau, which came highly recommended by our visiting friends Linda, Josh, and Sam. I selected Ô Chateau’s wine and cheese pairing lunch out of their class offerings.
I always hear horror stories about people getting their wallets, phones, or even entire purses stolen in Parisian metros. I had prided myself on avoiding thefts… until last night.
While things are generally wonderful here Paris, be assured that life isn’t always free fancy hotel stays and croissants every day. Tyler and I recently went through our first foreign tax-filing experience. I spent quite a few weeks stressing out about it, but we found the people at our local tax office to be surprisingly helpful to us newcomers.
