I am Boring: Paris Again
You might remember last September, when I announced I was going to Paris, yet AGAIN.
I had a few sarcastic comments saying that "I was boring", and "why don't you go somewhere else for a change?"; "it's a shame that you go to the same place every year".
This will be our 8th September in Paris.
If exciting, beautiful cities bore you, then you might want to turn the channel the next few days.
I have lived 20 miles from NYC all of my life, and visit twice a week, sometimes more.
I love cities. I need the stimulation of the museums, restaurants, theatre, constant pulse, creativity, art and people, it never gets old for me.
Each neighborhood in Paris is unique and makes my heart race every time I am there, even after having been there many times.
I haven't even seen half of the city yet!
There are so many new young chefs doing great local things (that foie gras, haute cuisine thing is slowly fading).
Each year, we try the new hot place and meet new and old friends.
We find new streets and neighborhoods that we have never seen before.
This trip, besides boring Paris, we are going to the Champagne region to explore and drink bubbly and to London town for a long weekend of theatre and dinner at Ottolenghi!
Posting will be light this week, however, you can follow my daily eats and pics throughout the trip via my instagram page, or my facebook page.
I hope I can keep you interested and awake thru the trip, and that you don't fall asleep on me.
Now this Paris is boring.
Looking forward to your posts - but don't take too much time away from having your own good time. We'll be fine...
I used to be one of those people who didn't understand going back to the same place more than once.... but I was young and excited to see the world! Then I discovered travel wasn't just about seeing new things every time, but more about getting to know the nuances of a strange place, and falling in love with the culture....
Although I have not (yet) been to Paris (OMG it is coming SOON!), I have a feeling it will most definitely NOT be my first and last.....
Oh, and I too have been to one place over and over again - this March will be our 9th time in Negril :o)
Enjoy and savour each and every moment....until next year :o)
