#ExploreFrance Plex’eat Shields #LouvreChezVous Oignons & Croissants

This new Twitter Ba(a)zar is dedicated to France, its famous museums, its many places of interest and some creative ‘alternatives’ (you will understand what we’re refering to soon enough). The country is not under lockdown anymore but yet it’s still impossible to come from abroad to visit it. So until everyone will able to safely travel to France again, we selected tweets allowing you to (virtually) discover the country! ...


Paris, a beautiful yet disturbing deserted city under lockdown

Last week we posted a news about the Eiffel Tower lighting up as a sign of solidarity with heathcare workers; this time it’s a video filmed by the Préfecture de Police of Paris and shared by Max Dana on Twitter capturing the emptiness of Paris. The City of Lights is empty quiet as streets are deserted during coronavirus lockdown. The feeling is kind of weird, to be honest… Paris is both beautiful and frightening, we are ‘at war’ ...


Naomi Campbell wears hazmat suit to airport

Last month, many people were still minimizing the Coronavirus pandemic, even among our leaders. But someone was already taking the threat very seriously (maybe too seriously?): Naomi Campbell. And it’s not an April’s Fool. Last year she had already posted a video ‘Naomi Campbell’s Airport Routine | Come Fly With Me’, explaining everything about her pre-flight ritual using Dettol anti-bacterial wipes: The supermodel was back ...


36 Hours in Lyon, France with Seth Sherwood

Last year, we mentioned the French city of Marseille in Marseille, a beautiful city far from any cliché. The article by Amy Wilentz was published on the New York Times. Another article recently published by the newspaper caught our attention as it was this time about another beautiful French city: Lyon. Journalist Seth Sherwood describes how he feels about Lyon and only the first sentences of his article give a great insight on his experience in the ...


Marseille, a beautiful city far from any cliché

Last week, we read a great article by Amy Wilentz published on the New York Times: France Nouveau. She has done a terrific job of putting together a nuanced and lively portrait of Marseille; no cliché here (much appreciated) but real life encounters to describe the way of life in Marseille. Here are few lines from the article: In Marseille’s small airport, you buy a 1 euro cup of machine coffee and you get on a plane headed for Paris or home, your ...


‘Lost in Paris’ with Matt Gross

Not everyone in the Sama Team lives in Paris, on the contrary. But some of us know the city quite well or at least they think they do. Reading Lost in Paris article by Matt Gross made us realize it is very different to visit the city once in a while, and to actually live in the place. Matt Gross, the former Frugal Traveler, is writing a book about independent travel, to be published by Da Capo Press. And he loves Paris since he met his wife Jean 13 years ...


Airbus reveals Concept Cabin for 2050 air travel

Airbus is a European aerospace company based in France, and it recently unveiled its Concept Cabin, a whole new flying experience inspired by nature. We were very surprised by the design, with walls which would become transparent. You can watch the sky while you’re on the plane, look at the stars and enjoy a beautiful moment… But not until 2050! Here is the news from Airbus Website: While taking a hop between destinations, according to ...
