31AT31 BONJOUR BLOG TOUR: THE ART OF ALL THINGS FRENCH

F
light 31AT31, now boarding for Paris, France.  That's right!  It is time to take 31AT31 on another blog tour.  Last time, it was the Southern Hospitality Tour in various cities in South Carolina and Georgia.  Now we shall explore THE ART OF ALL THINGS FRENCH from the food, museums, galleries, monuments, the people, music and the fashion.  Now, of course this is all pending an adequate internet connection.  I am told the hotel has wifi in both the room and the lobby.  So let's keep our fingers crossed.  



The list of all the places I would like to visit on this second time to Paris is super long and has a serious arts focus.  My first time in Paris, I was only concerned about receiving my first passport stamp and having one (albeit very limited) conversation with a native French speaker.  It was with the cab driver and I asked him how much? as that was the phrase I had spent the most time practicing in between studying for law school finals.  The only problem was, I didn't study possible responses so I just stared at him with a goofy smile on my face when he told me the price back in French.  It is a memory, my aunt still cracks up about. Ha!  

He spoke English, of course.  I only say of course because one of our tour guides spoke 5 different languages because there were 5 different language speakers on the tour.  I am pretty sure had there been one more language added to the mix, he would have spoken that language too.  

This time to Paris will be different.  I didn't have time to practice any phrases so I will be that annoying American flipping through my phrase book.  Oh well!  I get an A for effort.  

A good artist friend of mine, encouraged me to make little art pieces to leave behind wherever I go.  I totally dig that idea so I will do just that if time permits.  I am a last minute packer but in my defense, I travel so much, I can pack my stuff in 2.3 seconds.


What to expect from the BONJOUR BLOG TOUR

 You can expect to live vicariously through me with pictures and perhaps even some video!  I don't even know what to expect so expect adventure and surprises along the way.  I am hoping to discover several things starting with THE ART OF ALL THINGS FRENCH...

Any art related sights you recommend?  I have a long list but would love to hear your suggestions.  Share your suggestions in the comments.  If you have a friend who would like to virtually explore Paris with me, share this post with them.  Bonjour!
