“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?” “Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”

Delicious days in Paris - book

Amanda Collins

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I first went to France, I carried a "Let's Go" guide - a huge bible of a thing, heavy, often innacurate, and woefully out of date by the time it was printed.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

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!

We'll always have Paris - Book

Jennifer Coburn is no stranger to writing and publishing, and her book is a sweet and gentle read.

Her travels with her daughter bring up plenty of great memories for me - but are evocative enough that if you haven't been there, you would certainly want to go after reading this.
