Travel Blogging Paris Advice

For me, Paris is like a delicious weekend romance! When I travel there, I dress up, go out to eat, visit museums, walk and walk, take a romantic boat ride, sit in a café and watch the world go by.

Then I  go home, and  painfully pine to go back again. It is the perfect relationship, a bit of a fantasy I know but I am smitten.

So this is a blog about Paris and all things French! Uniquely for Women Of A Certain Age. Because like Paris, at this age, we bring to the world the very best of ourselves!
