Travelling To Paris On Your Own? Read This First


No matter how busy my day job gets, I take every available opportunity to share my passion for France. In that spirit, I have again worked in collaboration with one of my favourite sources of French inspiration, the online magazine My French Life. This time I share my tips on travelling to Paris as a solo traveller – here’s a taste:

It was a strangely liberating experience, to be standing at the station platform, waving my husband off for his trip to Germany. He was meeting friends. Rather than joining him for that part of our vacation, I had chosen to remain on my own in France, specifically Paris.

Please don’t misunderstand, I love travelling with my husband. He is my best friend, and we’ve been on so many adventures together. But I was really looking forward to living the dream of so many Francophiles: the luxury of time alone in Paris to cater only to personal whims.

I’d love for you to follow the link and read the whole article, ‘Going it alone in Paris – life as a solo traveller‘.

Until next time – au revoir.
