The A Paris Travel Blog
My company, A Paris Travel offers tours in France and Britain. My goal in these pages is to share my thoughts and ideas on traveling in France and Britain, the places where I arrange tours and other travel services.
Welcome to the A Paris Travel Blog
Happy 2013 and welcome to our new blog. I thought it would be a great way to tell you about the changes to A Paris Travel's website for 2013 and in future postings I'll tell you ...well, you're just going to have to check back to see what I'm sharing.
First, we've updated the look of our site and offer more tours throughout France as well as its fine neighbors Great Britain, Italy, Belgium, Holland, and Switzerland. We've also added additional cruise ship excursions for cruises arriving in Le Havre, Cherbourg, Bordeaux, Le Verdon, Honfleur, and Rouen.
As I begin a new year working with guests with their travel arrangements and begin to plan new trips, tours, and itineraries, I'm reminded of a statement made by a wonderful person who came on one of my escorted tours to Paris and Normandy for D-Day. At the end of a very stimulating day to memorable D-Day sites, he said "I am forever changed!". Isn't that profound? Doesn't that apply to us as travelers? If we are not changed, then why do it? It's in the change that happens as we acquaint ourselves with new people in foreign countries, immerse ourselves in new places, experiences, cultures, and adventures, as we learn about the history that has shaped the place we're visiting, and as we taste new foods, stay in new accommodations, and perhaps have confidence and courage to even venture out on our own to discover further things about the location, we are changed! It feels good and that's why we return for more.
I know that travel can be stressful though and certainly planning to go to Europe can be overwhelming. However, I love that part and look forward to another year of meeting new people as I assist with trip planning or arranging private tours for Normandy or a guide for Brussels or a walking tour in Rome or that special tour to Stonehenge. I'm ready!
