My name has been on the reserves list at the library for this book for an age, and I have been really looking forward to it, so I was very very excited to hear that it was waiting for me last week.
I must admit that my first reaction to the book was suprise. I had imagined curling up on the couch with a travel story, but the book was an enormous hardcover, which instead of being written in chapters was simply little half-page descriptions on different aspects of life in Paris.
However, the fabulous photos drew me in, and before long I was truly engrossed in the anecdotes, observations and insights of an Australian family who relocate to Paris for a few years.
I have had my notebook on hand, as this book is a rich resource for anyone planning a visit to Paris, and especially those who plan to stay for some time.
It's got me to dreaming...
