As COVID-19 restrictions are eased around the world, we are stretching our wings and resuming travel to locations beyond our backyard. For the French-American Cultural Foundation, a trip to Paris is naturally at the top of our list and an April visit sounds most welcoming.
This April trip will follow up on F-ACF Executive Director Debbie Dunn’s successful trip to Paris in September 2021. She found the health requirements clear with relative information and testing sources organized, and it in no way infringed upon the pleasure of being in France. As we plan our April visit, we look forward to seeing Paris in yet another season of life.
We will be meeting with our newest partners, the Institute Curie, Institute Paul Bocuse, Musée national de la Marine, and brilliant designer team Ymer & Malta, while further developing our unique and historic relationship with Versailles. All these entities are presenting innovative programs. Their work is intrinsic to our mission of identifying shared areas of interest between France and America. There are great stories to tell our American audience.

- We’ve recently learned that Air France is adding over 200 direct flights from the United States to France, and we encourage you to explore on your own as soon as you are ready.
- Actor and author Andrew McCarthy penned an essay recently for the New York Times to explain his urge to resume travel as a way of overcoming fear that many of us have developed during the pandemic: “Isolation is a devil’s garden. Of course, due diligence and responsible behavior are required in such a fluid situation, but taking back our agency has its own rewards. With the proper precautions, travel may provide a most unlikely way out of this quagmire of fear in which we find ourselves.”
