Eagerness has been crawling through my veins lately. In 47 days (not that I am counting) I leave for Paris. I will be spending a week with my aunts in the Canal Saint Martin area, then I will be on my own for a month in the Rue Montorguiel area. This will be the 5th time I have returned to Paris, and the goal is to slow down.
Paris is so condensed with great sights to see. Every time I visit, I consume metro tickets like the French consume bread. I just want to see it all. This time I will see what I never have enough time to take in: French life. I will park myself at cafes. I will flâner through neighborhoods I’ve never visited. I will be French.
Periodically I will escape the city to explore other areas. One day trip will take me to Rouen. I also plan on taking the high speed train to Strasbourg to take in some Alsatian life. One of the trips I am most excited about takes me to Bruges, Belgium. I will stay there for one night at a bed and breakfast.
During my trip, I will be documenting and sharing my adventures on this blog. I hope you will join me as I provide advice on sights to see, my own personal experiences, and general travel tips.
–Have some advice for my trip? I’d love to hear it!–
