Places I want to visit: France

On my list of places to visit, France is in the top five.
I want to walk down an old French street and smell freshly baked bread.
I want to eat  a real croissant in a real French bistro with my cafe au lait.
I want to get my picture taken by the "Tour Eiffel'!


Yeah, I wanna be in the girl in that picture.


Did you know...

- At one point in time, France made it illegal to sell faceless dolls?
- France is the most popular tourist destination in the world?
- The Phamtom of the Opera was written in France during the 18th century?
- France has earned the most Nobel prizes for excellent literature?
- France was second to America in using electricity?

Fun Fact- Gustave Eiffel not only built "Le Tour Eiffel", but also the Statue of Lady Liberty. He modeled her face to look like his mother.

So if anyone needs a French interpreter or tour guide...give me a call!
Have a Happy Monday


  1. I think Paris is great place to visit, I hope I can do that one day. Especially for going to the Musée du Louvre. But I could never live in Paris. People from there told me how rude the Parisian were, and how dirty the streets, and I won't talk about the politics...Did you know it is called "La ville lumière" because they were the first to use a lightning system in the streets (19th century)? ;-)

  2. Very nice write up....I must say!!! I am planning to visit Paris very soon. I want to make this trip absolutely memorable thus i chose to plan everything via It's my favorite travel portal and every trip with them has been worth treasuring :)


Don't be shy!
