First stop… Shakespeare and Company

For the typical tourist sites such as Notre Dame and the Effiel Tower would be their first destinations when in the City of Lights. For us, it is a bookstore. Not just any bookstore, but Shakespeare and Company. The original store was home to such literary figures as Joyce, Hemingway, and Ginsberg. It’s current location, across from Notre Dame. The reading rooms on the second floor feature live music and book readings.


 

 

Our Paris Apartment

Here is the view from our Paris apartment, situated in the heart of Paris, just a few blocks from Notre Dame. The neighborhood is filled with cafes and shops.  The metro station is just a block away.  This is the perfect location to serve as our home while we explore Paris and the surrounding area.

  

Paris.  Here we come.

My husband and I leave Saturday night for a month in Paris. Packing has begun. Lots of outfits from just a few items. Yes. Four pairs of shoes but we will be doing lots of walking and I like to change shoes every day. Everything fits into my carryon bag. Stay turned.
