I’ve been dreaming about our upcoming vacation later this summer in Paris, plotting what to pack, what exhibits are on (Eugene Atget!!), which sites to see (Chartres or Versailles?), and what to eat. Part of the fun of the trip is the planning. There are so many possibilities, but of course we can’t see them all.
My husband and I both love wandering through the different Parisian neighborhoods, or arrondisements. We eventually plan to walk through all 16 arrondisements; on our last trip, we walked from the 14th arrondisement to the Simone de Beauvoir bridge, shown below.
I’ve read that this has been a very cool/damp summer in Paris; I’d prefer sunshine but as long as we’re in Paris, the weather really won’t matter. And if I don’t pack warm enough clothes, there are plenty of department stores to explore.
