Bonjour! Do you think you’re lost…?

05/20/2014

Things look a little different here at The Armchair Parisian, non?  Oui!  A while back I mentioned that there were changes brewing here and this spiffy updated look is just the start.  Soon, The Armchair Parisian is moving to a new address – The Armchair Parisian.com.

But that’s not all that’s changing…. There’ll still be lots of wonderful Paris photos, however I will be turning over the writing on the new blog to my alter-ego who will tell you stories about her trips to Paris where she gathers inspiration for the gorgeous scarves she will be making available in the boutique this fall.  (Wait till you see them - j’adore! I have one of each already :-)  She’s a complicated woman with intriguing relationships….I hope you enjoy getting to know her as much as I have.  You can visit with her a bit here.

Oui, I realize this is a very poor quality photo.  Not up to my usual standards, but it has  story. One day, during a solo Paris trip, I walked 19 miles (at least that’s what my pedometer told me and I tended to believe it given the pain in my feet).

I didn’t actually walk 19 miles on purpose ~ I was lost, lost, really lost.  Not just a little I-kinda-know-where-I-am-this-is-fun lost.  No, after a few hours, this was OK, let’s stop messing around here ~ where the hell am I??  The map wasn’t helping and damned if I could even find a metro station.  But I was determined to find my way, not stopping to ask anybody for help.

I finally started to recognize landmarks about the time I was going to start wimpering and ask for help.  I collapsed gratefully in a café chair near a window, ordered a well-deserved beer and a nibble and watched this man cheat death.  He’d teeter on the ladder, reaching so far out I thought for sure he was going over more than once or twice.  He’d climb up into the planter and stomp around, yanking so hard on those plants I thought one would pop loose and send him to the pavement.  It was entertaining in a scary kind of way…
