Hello from Colorado! I am wrapping up a ski weekend with my husband and returning to Chicago to see Henri. We had some snowy cold weather, but I could still get out for some ski lessons for two days.

  1. We are leaving for Paris in 2 weeks. The first half of our trip is in Paris and the second half will be the French Riviera area. I have been following the strike/protest news and hoping our trip can proceed without too much interruption. I realize we will need to be flexible. We are staying in the 14th this trip, a new area for us. We stayed in the 5th previously. Thank you for all of your tips and travel information.

  2. I really appreciate the article on eSIMs. When I got the new iPhone and noticed it didn’t have a SIM card slot I wondered what I would do when the time to travel international came again and now I know!
