Safety Scouts Advice

Leave a comment

July 20, 2015 by Emma Bentley

One of the positive outcomes of my unfortunate incident with a taxi driver was an introduction to Christopher Gadenne.

He’s a former Parisian police investigator who now dedicates all his free time to helping others. In particular, he’s launched the Safety Scouts YouTube channel to increase victim awareness of common attacks or scams.

Here are some of the videos which apply to the most prevalent tourist scams in Paris. (i.e. the fake “deaf person” petition, the bracelet scam at the bottom of the steps to the Sacre-Coeur and the people who “help” you at the Gare du Nord ticket machines.)

Each of the videos is less than a minute long and they are most definitely worth watching.

“Vintage 2017 Report” Or “How To Protect Against Frost”

It’s becoming an all-too-familiar scenario: a beautiful springtime with plenty of warm sunshine but followed by a sudden dip and freezing temperatures. A cold winter does marvels for the vineyard but once bud-burst has taken place, a cold snap can have catastrophic results. You may remember that I wrote about this already in 2016. Vintage 2016: […]
