This week’s guest was Carin Olsson, the Swede behind the hit website Paris in Four Months.
Hey, maybe you’re one of the million people who follow her on Instagram.
In the podcast episode, we talk about what it’s like to be an “influencer”, the man who walks his pig on the Ile Saint Louis, and the best cafes, restaurants, and bars in Paris.
Now perhaps you don’t have 30 minutes to listen to the episode, so here are her answers for the best cafes and bars and restaurants in the city.
Remember, I put her on the spot with these questions, there’s a much fuller list of her recommendations here on her site.
But on The Earful Tower, she reeled off the following places. And don’t forget, as Carin said, as long as you’ve got good company, a bottle of wine, and some space on a terrace, you can never really go wrong in Paris.
