La Vie Parisienne (Paris Life)
La Vie Parisienne (Paris Life) By Janelle Mc Culloch
Dramatic, lust-filled romances! Disastrous french villa renovations! Life-changing career moves!
In the same vein as other travel memoirs (think “Eat, Pray, Love” or “Under a Tuscan Sun”) La Vie Parisienne is a tale of a woman traveling to France in search of well….something soul-soothing.
In this case, for Aussie girl, Janelle McCulloch, there were no high-level temptations, flirtations or decorations, but like meeting a entertaining friend everyday for coffee, I looked forward to reading on whenever I had time.
Janelle describes her escape to Paris, as an opportunity to “look for love and the perfect lingerie.”
While I didn’t need to go man-hunting, I found her descriptions and recommendations of underwear stores, coffee shops, bars, new friends and shopping tips not only informative but lovingly picturesque. I read this E- book before heading off to Paris myself and book-marked numerous places to see, browse and eat at, based on her own year long explorations and wonderful descriptions.
This a fabulous complement to a lonely Planet Guide for anyone who is going or has been to Paris.
