My boyfriend and I have both never been and we are planning to go in the next few weeks - hopefully I can resurect some of my high school French for this trip! Anyways, any tips on traveling there? We're looking at package deals and also at buying the tickets individually. Also your favorite areas to stay in? Thanks! I'm already thinking about purchases too! I'm pretty sure that I'll be getting a Goyard bag and perhaps some vintage jewelry for my birthday - I like Victorian mourning jewelry, Edwardian jewelry, bohemian garnets - so any tips in that area would also be appreciated!
