“To err is human, to stroll is Parisian. ”
This quote from the 19th century expresses the best of Paris. The way to truly experience the city is to get out and walk.
Meander. Have no purpose. No agenda. See what you can see.
Truly, nothing is more quintessentially Parisian than spending a lazy hour or afternoon strolling through the parks, along the Seine, popping into a shop or two and, of course, stopping at a sidewalk cafe for a coffee or glass of wine.
In France, a person who strolls with no apparent purpose, is called a flaneur. If you really want to experience Paris, you might want to become one for a while..
Looking at the different buildings is part of the experience.
I found this one quite interesting……..logs have been applied as an exterior material. Lots of texture.
The way the Parisians cover up their construction zones is always fun to see.
Paris is the ultimate when it comes to shopping. I love to just “look.”
People watching is the BEST.
