Ask Chris: A reader asks for recommendations on things to do in Paris.
This is part of my ongoing ”Ask a travel expert” series. What to do in Paris? Question: I am writing because I recently won two tickets on Air France to Paris and was wondering if you have any recommendations for what to do with a week in Paris! Eat, see, tour, where to stay on [...]
Love in Paris marks this week’s “Special Moments” Photo Friday.
This week’s #FriFoto topic is “Special Moments.” It seemed a little too Hallmark to put up a shot of Don and I on vacation, so I chose this candid photo I took in Paris in 2010. It was an unusually warm March day, and people apparently felt no shame taking it to the streets. City [...]
