Hemingway's Haunts in Paris

Hemingway's Haunts in Paris

star-5
Hemingway spent his formative years in Paris. Surrounded by fellow authors such as James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound & F. Scott Fitzgerald, he transitioned from struggling journalist to seasoned novelist. These men & women were known as the "Lost Generation", many of whom had suffered through the horrors of WW1. They flocked to Paris not only for artistic inspiration but also to find themselves. This tour will take you to the places that Hemingway frequented, where he lived, worked & partied. Along the way I share documented research on his life & exploits, archival photos of Hemingway in Paris, and excerpts of his work. From his first trip to Europe as a volunteer Ambulance Driver in WW1, to his final journey embedded with the American troops liberating France in WW2, I will share Hemingway's experiences in Paris, his lives, his loves, his work. We will visit his favorite bars and perhaps share a drink - you can even type a note on the typewriter he left in the Ritz Hotel.

Flâneurs of Belleville: Explore the art of city walking on an audio walking tour

Flâneurs of Belleville: Explore the art of city walking on an audio walking tour

Flânerie (or city wandering) is a cherished rite of modern Parisian culture. But how does one wander à la française? On this self-guided audio tour, we focus on the in-betweens of Paris: we will walk the seam between the historically and culturally rich neighbourhoods of Belleville and Ménilmontant, and explore lesser-known neighbourhood gems, history, and culture. At the same time, this tour will teach you the art of flânerie: how to wander a city and read it like a storybook, or play it like a game, rather than simply choosing the straightest and quickest shot from one famous monument to the next. Your tour guide, Jennifer Solheim, is a French and Francophone literature scholar.
