PARIS 2022

Calling all fellow #travelholics!
Let’s explore Paris and find the best of the best sweet treats!
We will indulge in all our chocolate senses, sip the most decadent le chocolat chaud (Parisian hot chocolate) and explore all my favorite places along the cobbled streets of Paris!

I hope you’ll come join me on this small group tour!

Highlights

I can’t wait to share with you my love for Paris! 

The most perfect day in Paris (for me) is when I can sit at a cafe and people watch while sipping on my coffee, meander through the cobblestone streets, take in the sights, walk through the gardens, stop for a glass of wine, indulge in a chocolate or two (or more), explore the shops and bookstores and then end with a view of the Eiffle Tower.

I want to share my perfect days with you. We’ll go on a quest for the perfect cup of hot cocoa (I always think I found it and then discover a new cafe), we’ll enjoy all the macarons you can eat, take in a hands-on chocolate class, and fill our senses with everything decandent and sweet!

During this sweet tour – we’ve got scavenger hunts through the streets of Paris, hand-on workshop for some delicious treats, we’ll be on the hunt for the best of the best sweets we can find, we’ll walk through Versailles and take a champagne tour and so much more!!!

Let's plot a book...

How would you like to help me plot a new story set in Paris?

Every evening, over dinner, we’ll discuss highlights of each day, from the places we visited, things we saw, special moments and more that can be used as scenes for an upcoming book.

You can also help create and name characters within this “Paris themed” story.
