  1. Many people claim that the French don’t like Americans. I have been to Paris several times and don’t agree with that – the people that I met in my travels were always friendly, always willing to answer a question or give directions. I love Paris and am planning another trip as soon as it’s safe to travel.


  2. I have never been, but love all things Paris. I think of it as a feeling more than a place. And I love to read books set in Paris.


  3. I love historical fiction!
    I’ve never been to Paris except in my dreams I picture the Eiffel Tower, dining on French food, eating French chocolate, the wonderful French wines, the beautiful country and, of course, the beautiful fashion.


  4. I took the Eurostar from London to Paris to spend the day. The highlight was eating crepes after our trip up the Eiffel Tower! I would love to go back!


  5. I fell in love with Paris. I love everything about the city and have plans for a return trip next year. Thanks for the giveaway. Stay safe and healthy. 💕📚😷📚💕


  6. I have never been to Paris. I’m not sure I want to, although the pictures of the Eiffel Tower are beautiful. There are so many places in the US that I still want to visit, i’ll probably stick to domestic travel.


  7. I have never been to Paris but family members have. Pictures are beautiful! I’ve enjoyed a number of books written with Paris as the setting!


  8. I have never been to Paris but would love to go. Le Marais, exploring, eating at the outdoor cafes and enjoying the beauty and history.


  9. From its bustling river banks, the beauty and charm of its architecture, the delicious food (did I mention the food???), delicious wine, countless opportunities to explore art, culture, and history. There are so very many reasons why I love Paris.


  10. I’ve never been to Paris, but have always wanted to go! I’d love to see the Eiffel Tower, try some delicious French food, and drink wine.

    Thanks for the chance!


  11. I’ve been to Paris 4 times. The 1st time was on my honeymoon 47 years ago for a couple of days on our way to Italy. My daughter married a Frenchman and lived there for 3 years. I went 3 times for the grandchildrens birthdays. I love the architecture, countryside, chateaus and, of course, the baguettes. The story would be when on our honeymoon, we ate in a exquisite restaurant. We were observing some Englishmen in an effort to figure out what to do. Near the end of the meal, we learned from them that they were trying to follow us. Talk about the blind leading the blind…this was a perfect example.
