That incredible Paris light in the Place des Vosges. All photos by me (or Mr. SMC).
Where does a person even begin when writing a Paris travel guide? I mean, there are entire books about this. How can I possibly sum it up in one story? So, I’ve taken a different approach. I’m assuming you can find the Eiffel Tower without my help, and that you know a day trip to Versailles is a must if you haven’t done it before. Instead, I’m taking you on a tour of my Paris. The restaurants I love, the shops I go back to again and again, the sites that are maybe just a bit off the path. Even if Paris isn’t on your horizon, I hope this will give you just the ‘virtual vacation’ you need today. And when you finally book that dream trip, I’m hoping perhaps you’ll take this list along and we can be travel buddies. Enjoy!
