Heather Stimmler in Paris!


*Featured Image copyright by Krystal Kennedy

Join me as renowned travel writer Heather Stimmler helps us explore Paris, as Christmas approaches, and to places in this city that most of us have never seen or heard about!


Formerly Travel Editor for ELLE, Heather has worked for almost two decades in the Paris travel industry writing for Fodor’s, Michelin Green Guides, Time Out, Expedia, EasyJet, France Magazine, and countless websites.


Originally from Scottsdale Arizona,  Heather moved to Paris in 1995, and in 1999, she started Secrets of Paris, one of the original English language websites offering alternative sightseeing advice, and insider information about Paris, and more recently also providing custom tours.


Where did Heather take these ladies of a certain age?


Like me, Heather likes to search out spots off the beaten track to provide an entirely different experience and one that balances the fantasy with the reality of this exceptional city.



Hear about Heather’s secret spots to visit in Paris!



In this interview,  I will be asking her to SHARE with us Three or More Of Her Favourite Locals! 


Along with questions as our woman on the ground during lockdown in Paris;


“How are Parisians finding ways to enjoy life safely during COVID-19 and continued lockdown?”


“Paris at Christmas is usually a feast for the eyes, what about this year?”


“What new secret spots will YOU be visiting in 2021?”


You can also WIN Heather Stimmler’s book in my GIVEAWAY Draw!
