With first-time-in-Paris family visiting, I took on the responsibility of making them fall in love with my new home. Anne was fantastic in letting me (1) book the experience far in advance and (2) be flexible with what exactly she had in store. When I was running late, she met them at their hotel and brought them to my apartment (a feat in and of itself! I'm the only somewhat French-speaker in my family). Then we wandered through the Marais--crossing through a flea market, stopping in galleries, and popping into a few boutiques along the way. This alone would've been great for them but we also hopped onto a bus towards the Right Bank and saw more than a few quintessentially Parisian sites. She sent us off with recommendations for what ended up being a fantastic crêperie and memories of an adventurous morning. It was everything I hoped it'd be and more. Thank you, Anne for showing my mom and sister the best of Paris (in my opinion) in the rain.
Although Danielle lives in Paris she thought it'd be nice to book my experience when her family was in town, which was really sweet. The three of them were troopers and thankfully did not melt in the rain either, and spirits stayed high the whole time!
