  • Paris: Day 5

    Dena November 24, 2010

    I can’t believe I made it—Day 5—my last day in Paris! I had a wonderful time staying with my Couchsurfer hosts for my first four nights in Paris, but decided to spend my final night in a hotel. I wanted to get the “full” Parisian experience & felt that a hotel stay was a necessary component. I would spend Day 5 in Montmartre, so I looked for a hotel there.…

  • Paris: Day 4

    Dena November 22, 2010

    I genuinely enjoyed each of the five days that I spent in Paris. The entire trip was like a dream come true—each day better than the next. It is difficult to choose a favourite day, but if I had to choose, I would pick day 4. It was so full of magick & wonder that I will forever remember it as one of the best days of my life. On…

  • The Catacombs of Paris

    Dena November 18, 2010

    I will write a full post about Day 4 in Paris, but I am writing a separate post about my experience in the Catacombs of Paris for two reasons. First, the fourth day of my trip was full & bursting at the seams. And second, my experience in the catacombs was so important & intense that it needs its own post to do it justice. The Catacombs of Paris is…

  • Paris: Day 3

    Dena November 17, 2010

    It’s hard to believe that after all I’ve written about Paris, I am only up to day 3! I was only there for 5 days, imagine what would have happened had I gone for a month… On the morning of day 3, I departed from my first host’s place and made my way to host number two. My second host also lived in a suburb outside of Paris. This suburb…

  • Paris: Day 2

    Dena November 16, 2010

    I spent my second day in Paris exploring the 4th, 5th, and 6th arrondissements. In chronological order, I visited: the Mosque of Paris; El Jardin des Plantes & The Museum of Natural History; The Pantheon; Shakespeare & Co. Bookstore; Notre Dame; and Ile de Saint Louis. Although it sounds like a lot to do in a day (on foot), Paris is actually very pedestrian friendly. Once the metro took me…

  • Paris: Day 1

    Dena November 12, 2010

    I left New Jersey late Saturday afternoon, “slept through the night” on the airplane, and arrived in Paris Sunday morning, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. From the airport, I took a train to my host’s neighborhood in Argenteuil—a suburb just outside of Paris. I called my host from a payphone, she picked me up at the station, and off we went to her flat. We had a lovely breakfast and chatted a…

  • Dining in Paris

    Dena November 9, 2010

    In September, I spent five glorious days exploring Paris, France. My time there was a dream come true. This post is my meager attempt to summarize the succulent (and the not-so-succulent) side of the City of Light. Day 1 After my long flight, from Newark, NJ to Paris, France, I made my way to my first host’s lovely apartment. I was tickled when she revealed a lovely Parisian breakfast waiting…

  • This is Paris

    Dena September 14, 2010

    Written Monday, September 13 Paris France — Argenteuil Train Station Yesterday, I came to Paris. On the flight, I was sat next to a man named Charlie—a textile salesman from Westchester. He travels to France twice a year for trade shows. It bothered me that he kept elbowing me even though I gave him the armrest. I took two sleeping pills and a glass of red wine & slept for…
