Paris. This Year.

Wild Blue Yonder  and Politics & Prose, Washington, DC’s premier independent bookstore, invite you to get to know Paris in an entirely new way, and make some new friends along the way.

Over the last several years, I’ve experienced Paris through the eyes of a Paris resident, my friend Donna Morris of Best Friend in Paris. Now Donna and I are teaming up with Politics & Prose to offer you a trip of a lifetime in Paris. It’s not an ordinary tour, but a new way to travel — as though you were visiting with your best friend who lived in the city.

All week, you’ll get to know the arrondissements of Paris, the hidden museums, where the locals eat, the spectacular parks, the local wine cellars where Parisians taste wines, and many enticing locations that tourists rarely see or know about.

On this trip, every evening before dinner, you’ll meet with Donna and me over a glass of wine. We’ll share that day’s discoveries (did you have a spectacular lunch, find a new park, stumble on a great handbag store, learn some history?). Bring down your shopping bags; we’ll all want to see what you bought and hear where you bought it. And then we’ll talk about the next day. Because — unlike a “tour” — on this trip, you always have choices about what to do and when to do it.

And we’ll be accompanied by Mark Laframboise, senior book buyer at Politics & Prose, to talk with us about literary Paris and our favorite places in and books about the City of Light.

Or just get in touch with me and I’ll tell you all about it.
