Trip Report I'll Never Need Turkey Again: Thanksgiving in Paris

Jump to last reply

Here’s a quickie report for our Thanksgiving trip to Paris.

Mission:
1) Visit our study-abroad student daughter, who lives in the 7th and studies in the 16th, over Thanksgiving
2) Take her winter clothing and down coat
3) Bring back her summer clothing
4) Eat massive quantities of French food

Length of Stay: November 24 through November 30 departure

Temperature/Outerwear Needed:
Ranged from low of around 32, high of around 57 during our stay. Wind as always along Seine and open spaces. Wore down coat, gloves and scarf for most of stay but never needed a lot of layers or silk underwear the way I usually do January and February. Spot of rain--but we were never out in it.

Accommodations:
Paris Vacation Apartment on 26 Rue Fabert (in 7th near Invalides)
