Episode details

After surviving the heatwave of 2022, we set out to explore Paris this week. We'll tell you what we found in the latest Elliott Confidential podcast.

By the way, we made a few upgrades to our broadcast this week that I think you'll like. 

Before we get to the rest of the program, here's this week's question: What's the most entitled behavior from a passenger you've seen while traveling? The comments are open!

Scroll up for the link to the latest Elliott Confidential podcast. 

Here are a few photos from this week's adventures:

The boys filmed one of Iden's videos in front of the Eiffel Tower this afternoon. We're lucky we found this patch of grass to do our session. I don't think I've ever seen so many tourists in one place. 

The churches of Paris are absolutely stunning. They're also a great place to visit when the weather gets hot. They're quiet and cool — and a great place to reflect.

Walking around Paris is so much fun. There are always new places to be discovered. Here's our ascent to Sacre Coeur. I haven't been here since 1986.

There’s much more in this week's podcast. We reveal our best Paris hikes, talk about how we survived the heatwave, and we'll reveal what the Paris insiders told us about how travelers have changed since the pandemic. Tune in now.
