My Paris Travel Articles

I love touring Paris so much that I have decided to write two series of articles. The first series divides Paris's twenty arrondissements (districts) into seven groups, eight if you count the introductory article. The other series, examining each of the arrondissements in greater detail, is in our sister site, wineinyourdiet.com.

You are probably wondering what these Paris travel articles are doing on these two websites. Why not? Just take a break, plan your next vacation in one of the best hotels in Paris and enjoy a wine tasting tour in the city. Will it affect your diet? Probably, but as our sister site wineinyourdiet.com discusses the French Paradox, that despite France's often great food and wine, the French death rate from heart disorders rests relatively low. If you read all the articles you'll learn about two (some say one but they're wrong) flourishing vineyards right within the city limits of Paris.
