to have lived in Paris as a young man,
then wherever you go for the rest of your life
it stays with you,
for Paris is a moveable feast.”

  • Prepare Your Visit to Paris, France
    Suitcase? Check! Camera? Check! Walking shoes? Check! Reading material? Prepare in advance with some book ideas! Language? Brush up on that French grammar! Frantastique is my Wednesday exercise. Then when I go shopping or chat on the street, those proper verbs just slide right out … still studying though! Some of the books in my library are Paris walking tours. They provide enough material to stroll through Paris and explore. Another prepares you with a story and history for your Champagne tasting. David Downie’s books are walking tours of history. Each chapter of each book weaves a tale of discovery. Tilar J. Mazzeo’s book whisks you into Champagne history with the Veuve Clicquot. (Reims is a 46-minute train ride away from Paris.)

  • Paris Plages 2017 – Villette Update
    Update for Paris Plages: Clémence from the Seine-Saint-Denis Office of Tourism contacted me with information in English about the Basin de la Villette section of Paris Plages. Paris Plages takes place in two locations every year: along the Seine (Parc Rives de Seine) and in the Bassin de la Vilette. Bassin de la Villette is the new hoping part of town in the northeastern section of Paris. Paris Plages began July 8 and continues to Sunday September 3. As they say on the Mairie de Paris’ webpage: “What would summer be without Paris Plages”. For maps of where to go swimming (baignait) what’s happening along the basin and what’s to eat and drink (rafraîchir et grignoter) visit Que Faire à Paris and about river shuttles, “Bals pop” (popular dance balls), etc. along the Ourcq.
