This week.....

Entrance to Alexandre Dumas Metro Station, Paris

....I am obsessed with all things Paris. In particular finding my way around the place. I am by nature not a very organised person, but when it comes to being in unfamiliar territory, I prefer to be well prepared. I have been planning routes and google mapping directions like crazy! With only 2 weeks until my trip, I hope I don't send myself insane!

Check out Vic's new meme and see what others are doing, or planning to do, this week...

You know, getting unexpectedly lost could turn out better than you think; a little bakery discovered or an independent gallery perhaps? Maybe just put the map away for one day...? How exciting!!

Thanks for playing along hon! xo

How exciting for you. I'd love to go back again. Every time I have been Versailles has been closed for one reason or another. I wish you a wonderful time planning your holiday.

How exciting. I admit I am the same, I had a zillion maps when I went there last. I didn't get lost so all was well.
I found if I at least tried to say a couple of words in French, most people were very helpful too.

I'm so excited for you! I went to Paris a couple years ago and absolutely loved it.
Definitely plan with your maps so you can see the things that are most important to you but frankly my favorite part was *walking to* all the things I wanted to see. It's such a beautiful city and just strolling in the direction I wanted to go was always wonderful.
Also, I went in mid-March and the weather was beautiful. I'm sure you can check all this out but I was enchanted by the fact that I could wear a few cute layers and be very comfortable.

Just don't forget to be adventurous while you are there and go off course every once in a while :)
