My Travel Catalogue #3 - Paris: Dinner

From personal travel journal: Dinner at home, with Bossa Nova jazz and the soft strains of summer rain. I heard someone said earlier this morning: “Une journée sans un déjeuner sympathique est une journée perdu” meaning ‘a day without a good meal is a lost day’, a kind of anthem for the French when it comes to food. People here take their time with everything, they meander, they procrastinate, they laze around, they take a break, this is especially true with their food. These are, after all, the people that put ‘rest’ in ‘restaurant.’ The family living in the apartment below me dine out on their terrace the whole night, till midnight, all the while sipping wine and, I gather from my butchered french, talking trash about the government. Time seems to come to a stand still here, which is not bad, not at all. My Travel Catalogue is an ongoing collection featuring my personal travel photography and diary. You can see the entire collection here: http://www.vingle.net/collections/148076-My-Travel-Catalogue?WTC. What's yours?

Those are the best get-togethers and meals. I've done that a fair number of times and it's always funny how no one realizes just how much time has passed. (^_^)
I absolutely agree! I met up with a friend last night and we had a 4-hour dinner conversation that lasted until midnight when the owner of the restaurant had to drive us out, and it was the best meal I've had all month. Everyone should take more time to enjoy the food and the company that we have with us.
It sounds so lovely. I truly wish it were like that here. Everyone is in such a hurry and I believe meals should be engaging, slow, and intimate affairs. :)

How to Decor Home to give it on Rent to Traveler?
This week we teased you all on social media and we're excited to show you how to adorn yourself with our home decor and our fall tour. This will be a DIY - filled tour of our home decor and decoration, complete with photos, videos, and more. During the tour, you will see how we have decorated for the fall, from our kitchen to our dining room, bathroom, living room to our bedroom. We changed the scenery on our prepared wooden table with some autumnal decorative touches, including a throw pillow and fake eucalyptus twigs (which can be found here and here). Our autumn dress is similar to last year, with amber tones reminiscent of the throw cushions and the not quite so eucalyptus branches, as well as a bit of red. We love the way the wreath can be seen from the inside out and immediately carried it to the living room, which borders our entrance. It is the first color our guests see on our front door wreaths upon arrival, and we love it! Our entrance is the entrance where our guests arrive and we want to keep it as close to the front door as possible, even if it is just a few meters from the door.
