When I first went to France, I carried a "Let's Go" guide - a huge bible of a thing, heavy, often innacurate, and woefully out of date by the time it was printed. It was perfectly possible to find (despite the guide's authoritative tone) that the restaurant you had saved your pennies for no longer existed, that the hotel you thought you had booked had been converted into a brothel and that the street you thought you were staying on had been renamed.
These days, travellers surf the web to find the most up-to-the-minute places to eat, sleep and play.
Where, then, does this leave the travel book? We no longer need our paper guides it seems.
Delicious Days in Paris is part memoir, part travel guide. It takes you on an armchair exploration of Paris and surrounds, and frankly, made me want to book another airfare!
