Enjoy a trip to Paris

They say that travel broadens the mind. It certainly leaves impressions and can be a great motivator to learn French. You may feel good if you go into a shop and manage to buy what you went in for. You may learn about the history of the area by going into the local syndicat d'initiative and picking up a booklet.

Does it make a difference to you if you are stood devant l’hôtel de ville in Paris and know that in that square there used to be hangings and burnings? It may well be that everyone is enjoying themselves at Christmas and they are ice skating around that very square, but I feel that it does enhance your French trip if you know that Henry IV had been assassinated and you were now stood where his assassin, Ravaillac was quartered by four horses setting off in different directions.

You may prefer to enjoy your Paris trip by ice skating.

A bientôt
