Ah, Paris! The destination of a lifetime? Maybe, but if you are one of those that needs to plan everything ahead, be prepared to toddle off the beaten path when plans don’t fall perfectly into place…..like they did with us! Fear not to stroll down unsure streets just to happen across an otherwise undiscovered community outdoor market, a quaint café, or boutique. The views along the way will be memorable no matter what! And at least you have GPS in your phone….I did not!
When I was there, most of the museums were on strike for a couple of day. Our meanderings took us to the beautiful Bois de Boulogne in the west end of Paris. Not only is it one of the largest parks in the world, …approx 2.5 times larger than Central Park in NYC: it envelops horse tracks, chateaus, waterfalls, amusement parks and is traditional in that you may see wedding parties, romantics strolling, and vast gardens. Additionally, for the culture lover, it’s home to the Louis Vuitton Foundation‘s stunning exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g187147-d194187-Reviews-Bois_de_Boulogne-Paris_Ile_de_France.html
