Today I bring you thoughts of cooler weather in the City of Love and Light!

Autumn is kicking in, with the odd warm days appearing less and less – if you’re already in Paris, you can expect high temps of around 15 degrees Celcius and lows of around 7 degrees.

New Postcards from Paris Adventures Deck of Cards!

Postcards from Paris Deck of Cards - 3 samplesI’ve wanted to let you know that I’ve been working on a cool little pack of cards – 50 of them – and each one has a tip for a great thing to do or a great place to see in Paris, including some of my favourites.

I’m so excited about this, the pack is small enough to fit in any pocket, handbag or backpack, and each day you’re in Paris you can shuffle the deck and pick out a new adventure for the day.

This is perfect for anyone going to Paris, or as a gift for anyone who loves the idea of Paris.

I’d love your feedback — does this sound like something you’d use?  Got any suggestions of your own? Click on the Contact form button in the Menu –  I’d love to hear from you!
