Sunday, er..uh, Monday Special – Paris

I sincerely apologize for not posting yesterday. I will be honest – I forgot. I had planned on it but plain forgot to post after working yesterday. I’m sorry. I hope this post on Paris will make up for it.


A good friend of mine is currently on her first trip to Paris and I couldn’t be happier for her. As many of you know, Paris is my favourite city in the world (though Ireland is my favourite country). I have liked Paris before we met and have loved her since I first step foot there back in 1991. That is a long love affair. We were apart for many many years but have since made 4 more trips to show I care. There will be more as well. This is not the first time that Paris has been featured in the Sunday Special  either. Paris is, in my mind, that special that she must be featured often.

Since I have been to the City of Lights and Bridges 5 times in my travel tenure I have seen all the famous spots (some more than once). The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sacre Coeur and much more have I enjoyed and traversed. It has all been so great, though now I am at the point were I can wander and look for the lesser known places or find something by happenstance. Day trips to Chartes Cathedral or outlying towns are an option. Getting lost in each arrondissement sounds like a perfect wander. A future trip would include use of my book Secret Paris (just as I did with my Secret Dublin book). To peek and look up or down and meander down various streets to find interesting treasures of wandering would be my reward.
