Not a question just a thank you for your Paris website

Thank you for your Paris website, Teena!


Paris Artists’ Open Door – visit the locals!

Teena, Just wanted to say a big thanks to you for your info …. I’m a Sydney gay guy who’s boyfriend is French and I’m heading over for 3 weeks in October with him to test the waters and see if I would live in Le Marais (rue chapon). Your hints will save me a lot of initial confusion :) …

We’re both currently in sydney and I’ve been to paris before when i was in my late teens as a backpacker but havent been back since…plus Im an artist in surry hills so i have a major list of places like the bateau lavoir etc i want to see in montmatre and montparnasse :) and a lot of off the track places like picasso’s other ateliers and haunts …

Once again thank you and i’d love to see some more of these silks! my myspace page has some work on it .. needs to be updated though!
take care
Tim Boyle

Response to: Thank you for your Paris website

Tim, I’m sooo pleased you found some good information about Paris on my website – it’s a labour of love, so to know that someone can benefit from the information warms my heart!

I’m an Aussie too, living in Sydney, and spending time in Paris whenever I can.

I used to live in the 4th arrondissement (in the Marais district), and this year I spent a month renting an apartment in the 11th (at metro Voltaire), within walking distance of the Bastille monument – fabulous location!

As an artist, you’ll absolutely adore Paris – especially when they have ‘open doors’ Portes Ouverte at many artist studios at different times throughout the year – one of which is perfect for you, it’s in October. I’ve written a wee bit about it on this page:

Here’s a roughly translated version of the Portes Ouverte website:

I’ll check out your site, and would love to hear back from you to let me know how your trip goes.

Bon Voyage!
