I looked over my blog and I made so many mistakes. Typos and oops. I apologize for that.

Don't worry about mistakes, your enthusiasm far outweighs mistakes, but holy crap get rid of those uncomfortable boots!

I love your photos! I was in Paris for the first time this past summer, and absolutely love it!!! But you must wear very comfortable shoes. I am a lot older than you (in my 60's), and we walked EVERYWHERE!! I wore very comfortable sneakers with good support, or very comfortable sandals with backs & straps for good support.

Looking forward to more. What was your favorite part of Paris, such as museum or neighborhood? By the way, I loved the Orsay, too, more than I expected.

Really enjoying your very fun blog PFD! Keep going.
I also laughed out loud at your man from the wrong side of the tracks.

I feel your pain about the boots, I took what I thought was a very comfy pair to Paris once and my feet just gave it up in the Louvre, horrible pain, I could barely limp outside to leave. Something to do with those marble floors.

So glad your trip was such a success and that you got to see the Eiffel Tower flashing its lights on your very first night in Paris. I love your enthusiasm and love of Paris. I, too, look forward to your next installment.

I hope you can get dual citizenship based on your father's birth in France. That opens many opportunities to you.

Hi...

Enjoyed your blog, and I'm happy you had a great time...who couldn't in Paris? The adjective I most use when I describe my feelings about Paris is, "magical."

Next time, you'll know better than to wear new shoes on a trip that involves lots of walking.

I'm also a hater of the metro "musicians" unfortunately for you PFD - I have to get up at 6am for work every day and so by the time I'm on my way home at 6pm, having busted a gut, I don't take too kindly to being treated to this noise and then, on top of that, effectively being asked for money for nothing.

I am enjoying your blog though! I also remember the wonder of my first visit (I was 18). Out of interest, though, why haven't you enabled comments on the blog itself? Or am I just unable to see where you've done this?

Your cousin seems very hard to impress (or is this "mangeable"/"buvable" business just a running joke between you?)!

Looking forward to reading the next instalment

We leave for Paris on Feb 1st so I am loving your posts, just the thing to get me into the mood.

By the way I love the boots I have that pair myself, and before you give up on them try a Dr. Schols gel insert, that makes all the difference in the world because it's not the heal but the lack of cushion in the boot itself that caused me to wince after the first mile. I can now walk in those boots all day. though admittedly I haven't tried it on cobblestones.

Keep the blog coming it's great.

Wait my comments are disabled?? Haha, I was wondering why I wasnt getting any comments.
The mangeable/buvable are actual things! She didnt like the food while we were there.

I'll look into getting the inserts for my boots!

what kind of food does your cousin like to eat at home? It is hard to imagine not liking the food in Paris!

Yeah it's my phone! Im really quite pleased with them too.
She's really into pasta and coca cola. She ordered pasta quite a few times while there and Coca cola pretty much with every meal.
