Eye on Travel — Paris — November 19, 2022
This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel is from Paris and the Hyatt Regency Etoile. When the going gets tough, the smart travelers follow Audrey Hepburn’s favorite advice: “Paris is always a good idea…”. And it is. Peter has all the latest travel updates, with domestic airfares skyrocketing and some cruise ship deals at very low prices. As we head into the Thanksgiving holidays, it may be the right time to forget about the turkey and head for the nearest restaurant in Paris. Alexander Lobrano, American Expat & Author of Hungry for France and My Place at the Table, discusses the everchanging culinary scene in Europe and the impact of the rising strength of the U.S. dollar on travel for Americans. Blaise Mautin, Parsian Perfumer (and the key perfume supplier to the French Hyatt hotels), joins the program to discuss the process — and the challenges — of coming up with individual trademark scents for hotels. Michel Morauw, Area Vice-President for Hyatt France, addresses how American leisure travel is back — and has exploded — as well as how the hotel is confronting staff shortages. And Josh Sapan, Author of The Third Act: Reinventing Your Next Chapter, discusses his new book, chronicles the great stories of how people have turned their life around and made major changes late in their lives. There’s all this and more from Paris on this edition of Eye on Travel.
