Dave!Today I heard somebody use the phrase "je ne sais quoi" and was overwhelmed with a sudden longing to be in Paris.

This is rather odd for me. Sure I like Paris. Love Paris in the Spring. I've been there four times and have nothing but good memories. And, contrary what everybody seems to say, I find the French people to be very kind and helpful. At least they have been to me. The food there is wonderful. I love their cheese. I love their bread. And French pastry is something to be savored at least once before you die. As if that weren't all enough, Paris is just simply a lovely, magical city...

But, in the grand scheme of things, Paris is not one of those cities that I pine over. Not like, saaaayyyy... Edinburgh.

But I would love to go back. Absolutely.

Especially if the rumors of the Hard Rock Paris relocating to Avenue des Champs-Élysées are true!

Who knows when that will be though. In the meanwhile, a viewing of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement will have to suffice.

    Does Elizabeth Hurley know that you seem to have a thing for Audrey Tautou as well?

    We’re thinking of going to Paris for our ‘mini-moon’ after we get married (we’ll leave the full two week honeymoon until our 1st anniversary in 2014). I’ve been 5 times – more than some cities in the UK – but Christine’s never been.

  3. Viens à Paris quand tu veux ! 🙂 Je serai là !

  4. Yeah I have mixed feelings about Paris. It was a cool city with lots of cool stuff to see and do. But it was so fricken *crowded* 🙁

    And yeah, I had no problems with the local French people. All my people problems were with rude tourists. And the crowds, did I mention the crowds?
