After attending Brown University and spending two years in New York, Tory bought a one-way ticket to Paris to pursue her dream of becoming a writer (and of drinking wine at lunch). During her time in the City of Light, she chronicled the euphoric highs and the laughable lows of ex-pat life on her blog, A Moveable Beast. Though she's now based in New York, she travels frequently to Montreal and Brazil, and she'll use just about any excuse to jet to Paris ("I ran out of fleur de sel"). A regular contributor to Hip Paris, Tory also writes for New York Magazine, Time Out New York, and she is a co-author of's Guide To Life After College. View Tory Hoen's Website

I remember my first picnic on the Seine , that my best friend over there, did in my honour .. it was fab .. so many people, dancing ,music and good friends 🙂

Mine is Place des Vosges – green space you can actually sit on! Plus it feels like museum picnicking 🙂

My favourite picnic spot in Paris is Pont des Arts – the best view over the city in my opnion!
