San Francisco Every Thirteen Years

During the fall 2017, Henri and I stayed for a month in the San Francisco Bay, thanks to the generosity of friends I’m incredibly grateful I met in NYC. I had visited the SF Bay thirteen years ago, back in the days when my English was very broken, I was traveling without a phone and moving here from a foreign country for work wasn’t really a concept yet. I fell in love, of course. After my second visit, I finally decided that I will never, ever live in San Francisco. But I will visit it at least every 13 years.

Minneapolis Cliché

minneapolis_mills_2

Minneapolis seemed to have at least 10 different sports teams competing against each other. In Minneapolis many things looked Scandinavian, there were even people playing Molkky in a park. Minneapolis looked like it had been destroyed and then rebuilt with the same materials that had been destroyed in the first place. Minneapolis was under construction everywhere. In Minneapolis hipster burgers were goooooood. In Minneapolis, there were many strip clubs. Minneapolis had the best art museum in the Midwest. Minneapolis looked very “nineties”. In Minneapolis there was not much “Prince” sightseeing. We fell in love with Minneapolis for an afternoon, like we usually do with other American cities.

Nashville Express

Cadillac in Nashville

A new city made it inside my list of perfect US cities: Nashville. Henri and I were only able to visit the capital of Tennessee for a few hours as we have to move up north a bit faster to meet people in Kentucky this Friday, and we have to work… But we had a sense of HOW COOL it is. Nashville is cool! It’s lively, touristy yet authentic, with a lot of positive energy and really entertaining, hip neighborhoods around Downtown. Continue reading “Nashville Express”

Miami is a Beach

Hello, I didn’t really like Miami. I’m writing this and I still have to spend two days here ; if I could I’d just cancel my AirBnb and leave. The problem is not really the obnoxious/douchey/touristy-everything (please check this video playlist to understand what Miami is about). I actually had fun trying to find famous French rappers on the beach, the water is very turquoise, the people are friendly, cuban sandwiches taste amazing, the museums are fabulous, Art Deco is fantastic, the diversity is incredible, etc. Henri and I went way outside of South Beach to experience it.

In love with Charleston, South Carolina

If you’re an American or have been living in the U.S. for some time, and have never visited Charleston, South Carolina, stop everything you’re doing right now and just book a flight or plan a road trip there. I’m serious. I don’t say that only because I’m French and this city looks and feels like Western Europe with palm trees. They also have good food. It’s just the most beautiful city I’ve seen in America (I mean, America, the continent) so far and a perfect destination for a long weekend trip. It’s also very affordable.
