The Gifts …

December 31, 2014

The best x-mas holiday read – Jeff Guinn’s “The Autobiography of Santa Claus“.  The difference between illusion and magic clarified. A fascinating combination between historical fact and legend. I have always known that it is St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) that brings us all these wonderful gifts 🙂

Discover Walks

December 21, 2014

GuillaumeI couple of year ago I discovered the Free Sofia Tour and was absolutely enchanted by them.

To my pleasant surprise in Paris, the Free Paris Tour was a blessing.

If you are up to great free walking tours in Paris, Discover Walks is your contact.

Great time with a native. Mine was Guillaume – on the photo.

Walk and feel the best of Paris landmarks.

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower

The Album from my short pre-Christmas visit to Paris is in my French blog.

It was a fabulous experience – a deLIGHT to all sense – seeing, hearing, tasting …

It just strikes me that the French word for “tower” and “visit” is “tour” and that is why I started my tour with La Tour Eiffel 🙂

If I have to sum it up in one word:

Paris is P A R a d I S e!
