November Travel Tips #1

READY JET GO! Tips before you fly!
Learn French FAST with Michel Thomas! We HIGHLY recommend this set of audio disks. In fact we swearby it! You will learn to speak French without any memorizing, writing, homework or even trying for that matter. It’s brilliant! No pressure to learn, just listening and ‘hearing’ what your listening to. Its amazing how it flows in and stays there – the next thing you know your constructing sentences in your head with so much ease it couldn’t possibly be this easy. Michel Thomas’ recordings are a practical and modern method of teaching. Available on Amazon

PARIS ONLINE! Le wonderful world of le Web!
There is a plethora of Paris websites out there; this months favourite Travel blog is: www.parisiensalon.com.au - A Paris Travel planner with info on shopping, restaurants, culture and insider information. 

MUST DO's! Everyone has his or her own version of Paris, this is ours:
This Months MUST DO is to visit 1 of our favourite small museums the Musee Rodin, in the 7th. This couldn't be more beautiful. The building contains various works including the personal collection of Rodin. The stunning garden (can be visted separately) is dotted with sculptures. This mansion and garden offer visitors a glimpse of a world possessing serene beauty. There is a wonderful cafe outdoors for lunch.

SWEETS OF PARIS! In search of the perfect pastry, chocolat, gateau, baguette and cafe...

HUGE must-eat is high-tea at Laduree – Paris’ grand cafe with a jaw-dropping collection of the famous delicious Parisian macaroons in an exquisite Belle-Epoque setting. Our tip: Don’t expect good service from wait-staff just enjoy the ambience and sweetness!! Four locations in Paris www.laduree.fr 

Chocolate aficionados will find an incomparable selection of chocolate cakes, pastries and (more) macaroons at Pierre Hermé. Try ‘Death by Chocolate’ or pralines with caramelized sesame seeds. Heaven!
