I’ve been so busy the last few months that I never got around to writing about my last minute amazing trip to Paris with Longines. My adventure with the Swiss watch company is well worth relaying anytime.
The invitation came out of nowhere to go to Paris to cover the Longines Future Tennis Aces tournament for Tennis Recruiting and the new fall watch line for Cocktails and Joints. I love anything that lets me combine lifestyle and tennis stories so it didn’t take me too long to say “yes!”
Longines driver was waiting for me as soon as I got to baggage claim.
InterContinental Paris Le Grand and my balcony looked out to the Opera House.
I had some time to shower and eat one of my favorite French lunches, Croque Monsieur, from room service before meeting with our group at 5:00 pm. We were going to the Shangri La Hotel for the Draw Ceremony. It was quite a festive seen, with the young boys who were playing the tournament mingling as they awaited their “fate” in the draw.
Dinner was a buffet set up for us at the Westin. I had fond memories of staying there when I came for the Perrier Jouët anniversary. It’s a modern gem near the Louvre and one of my favorites in Paris.
