Traveling into Paris connecting from plane to train there is this great two story travel board. It’s amazing to see just how many destinations come in and out of Paris on this board.
On a business trip to Paris I had a completely free evening – so I decided to head out and go to the top of the Arc de Triomphe – something I hadn’t done in probably 15 or more years. It was interesting to go back and be a tourist of sorts and see these things fresh again. I like Paris but have to say I don’t think it’s the food city everyone claims it to be. I keep looking for great food in Paris but it always seems to fall short somehow – and I’m talking the basic stuff, nothing fancy. For example – it’s hard to simply walk up to a bar and have a coffee – you have to seemingly always sit down, turn the chairs around to face the streets, and make it an event. I like the way they do it in Rome much more – walk up to the bar, order a coffee, knock it down, check out the people in the bar, head back out. In any event, Paris is a great city, you just seem to have to have a bit more of a plan in Paris that in some other Capitals – but maybe that’s just me.
One of the nicest streets in Paris. Full of interesting retail and well appointed residents. If you go check out Colette.
