My Guide to Paris

I’ve lived in Paris on/off since 2012 and have spent hours strolling the narrow streets of le Marais, sipping café au laits in my favorite coffeeshops, running in Jardin du Luxembourg and braving the Pigalle nightlife. In other words I’m long overdue to share with you my guide to the best city of all: Paris. First off: forget the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées – I would be a terrible travel writer if I...
