Curvy In Paris with Terri Murray
What lessons did we learn from 2020? For me it has been to never put off my dreams. And travel is no exception. As weeks of isolation have become months, we are ready to have something to look forward and desperate to start planning our escapes.
Working with You Go Girls! Travel, I have created an idea to lift your spirits and fulfill your Parisian dreams. Marcia Miller founded You Go Girls! 22 years ago. She carefully curates tours for women because - women travel differently than men. Her special talent is building itineraries to fit the interests of women travelers. The unique experiences set her tours far from your granny’s bus tour. She is fun, professional and welcoming. And she brags that her guests are interesting, kind, and intelligent. So - you will fit right in! Our group will be small to allow guests to enjoy each other. We will be sure that everyone feels welcome and comfortable.
Our plan will cover some basics of Paris like the Musee d’Orsay with its fabulous Impressionist works. But we go a step further to focus on the fashion and food that the City of Lights is so known for. One night our dinner will be a hands-on cooking class, and one day we take a Chocolate Walk – with lots of samples. Other days we slip into the world of Coco Chanel, and take a Fashion Walk to learn the history of shopping!
There will be time to shop and explore and laugh. If you have even a hint of interest in the fun, let me know and I will get you the details. We cannot wait to share the sparkle and romance of Paris with you.
