Tips / Destination

Paris’ street-side cafés and coffee culture are an avid reader’s dream, and its bookstores are even better. Here are some of our favorites.

Located in the 5th arrondissement, Shakespeare and Company is one of the city’s most iconic bookstores. It’s a bit touristy but still well worth a visit, as it boasts a vibrant history of association with The Lost Generation of expats who inhabited Paris in the 1920s (i.e. Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald).

Once boasting a bohemian flair, La Hune in the 6th arrondissement, is now home to a refined collection of French literature and books on the humanities, as well as a great collection of fine arts and cinema books.

Librairie Galignani was the first English bookshop established on the continent in 1801, located along the Jardin des Tuileries near the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement. It houses an impressive collection of English and French literature and history.

Located in the 11th arrondissement, the small bookstore Violette & Co. makes a big statement, offering a selection of books aimed at educating the public on women’s rights, homosexuality, religion and other social subjects.

A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
