A Paris Guidebook
It seems the more we visit Paris, the more we realize we haven’t seen. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to plan a travel itinerary. We love to explore on foot, so when I saw a mention for this new guidebook, “Paris in Stride,” I placed an order immediately. Just received my copy a couple of days ago, and am enjoying it so far. Organized by neighborhood, it presents a mix of well-known landmarks and more obscure attractions with cafes, bars, restaurants, parks and shopping venues.
And the illustrations are quite charming too…
I think this book has something for travelers ranging those who are visiting for the first time and want to see the Main Attractions, to those who are more experienced and scorn the more “touristy” spots. I’m taking notes for cafes and a few points of interest for our visit in early June.
Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch…
Work on the house has mostly moved outdoors. Yesterday, windows were installed in the two front rooms, replacing the original windows from when the house was built in 1941. It will be nice to have windows that actually open. Next up, stucco and paint.
I’m really looking forward to being done with this renovation, and being able to relinquish my second job as Project Manager. 😉
Happy Passover, Happy Easter
Family is flung far and wide this year, so it’s the first year in many there won’t be a big Seder gathering. We’ll have Jeune Homme with us, and plan to enjoy a quiet weekend at home. (JH was recently diagnosed with a wheat allergy, so we’ll probably stick to potatoes.) If you’ve been invited to a Seder and aren’t sure what to bring, may I recommend an easy Apple Matzoh Kugel?
Whether you’re celebrating Passover, Easter or any other Spring holiday, I hope you have a lovely one. Bon weekend!
