Erica Berman grew up in Lexington, Mass. After graduating from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Journalism and an intensive summer at Middlebury College (Vermont), Erica went to Paris with hopes of submerging herself in French culture and perfecting her French -- and she stayed 20 years. Erica is the founder of the HiP Paris Blog and Haven In her former company. She now splits her time between Paris (Montmartre) and Maine (Midcoast). She recently started a non-profit growing organic produce for the food insecure in Maine called Veggies to Table. In her all-too-rare free time, Erica likes to travel off the beaten track, explore Paris and Maine, read, take photos, cook, kayak, hike and enjoy long Sunday brunches with her friends.

Wow, wow, wow!
Amazing places and fantastic ideas.

I’d love to go to Paris, someday.

Loved the pictures, thanks for sharing!

If you only have a week in Paris you will not see much of Paris with those indoor activities. The best one you have highlighted is Wine tasting at O’Chateau – not to be missed nor a Charcuterie board after the wine tasting. Brilliant place to visit, extremely knowledgeable Sommeluers. A day trip to Reims is mostly spent in a bus looking at countryside & a cooking lesson won’t get you too much sightseeing. Put your walking shoes on or hit the Metro to see the real Paris.

Now I want/need a Winter getaway in París! Thanks for all the recommendations and tips!
