For those seeking inspiration now that air travel is more open again, or just want a great gift, this is a very special publication, showing everyday Parisians going about their business. It is a very human-level book.

Paula writes, ‘Join me in experiencing the authentic daily life of this energetic and vital city, a world capital of creativity and compassion. Wander the back streets and landmarks with me, sit at a table at a sidewalk café, savour the delicacies and window-shop. Get inspired for your next trip.’
She adds, ‘Which is more important: the Eiffel Tower or a fresh croissant?’
