About this Paris Blog

Brenda Prowse visited Paris in 1994 and made a note back then that she wanted to live there someday. In January 2013, she and her husband Hugh Nelson moved to the City of Light. They stayed 2 years instead of the 1 year originally intended. Now they have sold their home in the US and moved back to Paris for an extended period. This Paris blog provides some commentary into the practical and impractical aspects of fulfilling the dream.

Blog posts include helpful information for others planning an extended trip away from home, personal insights, tourist information, sight seeing, and French history relevant to a deeper understanding of our topics. We hope you’ll find this blog interesting and useful in gathering ideas for your next trip to Paris.
