This week I checked into my dream Parisian pied-à-terre: the newly-opened 25 Place Dauphine from the ladies behind apartment rental website Paris Perfect. Sky-high ceilings, aged grey wood, billowy linen curtains, velvet furniture, crystal chandeliers, and a prime location Île de la Cité. It's pretty fantastic. – Berit, editor

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this documentary about a tiny Irish island (population: 58) that has been welcoming American refugees who wish to escape the Drumpf presidency. – Daniel
