Trip Report Hemingway's Paris - An inspiring view..

Jump to last reply

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast"

Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century, loved Paris. He lived in the capital of France through most of the 1920s; here is where he wrote his first published novel - "The Sun also Rises" - went bar crawling with the Irish author James Joyce, got into countless fights, divorced his first wife and married his second, and became the author that years later would win the Noble prize for literature. Here are some of the places that "Papa" Hemingway used to hang around in those days.

The first time Hemingway visited Paris was on WWI, on his way to the Italian front, in the beginning of 1918. Hemingway and a friend came from America on a ship named "Chicago", while the city was under heavy German bombardment. Hemingway's friend wanted the two to drive straight to the safe hotel, but Hemingway asked the taxi driver to take them as close to the place where the bombs were falling as he can. One of the bombs landed very close to the taxi, chipping away a piece of the facade of Madeleine
Church.
