This is a Join Us in France Short, Episode 250. Bonjour, I’m Annie Sargent and today I wonder: Are you worrying about the right stuff when preparing your trip to France? In other words, what are the things you should consider when visiting Paris and what are some you can forget about?
Vacation time is precious and maybe you’re coming to France for the first time, so you want the best of everything and you ask for a lot of recommendations. I understand that urge, I do the same thing when I am going somewhere unfamiliar.
But consider this: sometimes researching for days on end will not make your trip any better at all. So, save some time, listen to this short episode, and concentrate on things that WILL make a difference!
