New Franprix ,New Concept,New Location

"Our job is no longer grocery shopping, it's catering in a new form." I understand, most of you really don’t care about what is happening or why. You just want to know if its open & is if its near me… Anyway, as they say everything old is new again….this store is located opposite the Opera, near Galleries Lafayette and if you have ever been to a dept store food hall…Harrods is a good example most people will know…this is similar to that. Except with a larger groceries/supermarket attached
Let me try and be succinct: 1.you can re-charge your phone 2. you can pick up ( if in area) your Airbnb keys 3.they have a salad bar 4. they have a couple of eating areas…hot & cold 5. they have an ipad size translator.

Lime Scooters in Franprix - Paris

Trying to keep up with supermarket changes in Paris is like keeping up the toilets in Rome…its always changing So with that in mind and the fact that I am trying to do ten things at once at the moment. I have copied and pasted this directly from the Franprix page. Basically you can hire a scooter at the following stores and you can get a E 1.00 for returning it…much like a supermarket trolley Oh, on a side note the Franprix noe store in the 10 arr has reverted back to being just a Franprix store.Still has organic stuff in there, but it now has regular stuff as well…or so I have been told. PS I have added the links to the blog and maps below on the address within the Franprx info....hope that makes sense   https://www.franprix.fr/article/lime-debarque-chez-franprix_a25152/1

Rejoice,miracles can happen !

The toilets in Rome are resurrected ! Updating public toilet facilities in Rome has been an exercise in perseverance. What was open one day, is often closed the next. After the Pope announced 2016 as a Jubilee Year, the Commune of Rome announced that all public toilets would be renovated and reopened by the end of 2015. Some toilets would remain under the care of the AMA while others would be sold to a private consortium. Both types were supposed to be functioning well before the commencement of the Jubilee Year. That did not happen, the Jubilee came and went but the toilets remained steadfastly closed. Fast forward to July 2019, the AMA toilets are all open* and now so are the snazzy ones run by the private consortium P.Stop What’s so good about these new P.Stop bathrooms? Well, they are all disabled friendly, they  have a parent’s room (they even have children’s toilets), they all have a water fountain and they also double as a tourist office! The AMA toilets aren’t so fancy. Not all hav…

Don't forget your construction helmet - Larvotto Beach,Monaco

Visitors to Monaco will have to share their beach space with a construction site next summer. Larvotto is being greened up to boost the principality’s eco credentials. Huge changes are planned to include a two level leisure and commercial area overlooking the beach. The upper level known as Promenade Haute will be close to Ave Princess Grace and the lower level or Promenade Basse will offer direct access from the Larvotto Plage. Sun lovers will have the opportunity to wander straight off the sand and into a luxe mall offering multiple dining and shopping opportunities. Those strolling along the upper promenade will discover shaded areas, a cycling path, tree islands and a kid’s playground. Disabled visitors to the principality won’t miss out either. Escalators and elevators will be installed enabling them to enjoy the entire area. This sits nicely with the existing Handiplage service available throughout the summer. Now, this is Monaco and as any regular visitor knows, what is promised…
