A more unpretentious Paris
by Benedicte Reitzel-Nielsen
Paris to me is not really about fashion week, impressive monuments and macarons from Ladurée. Not that I mind these things - it’s difficult to have hostile feelings towards macarons - but it seems there’s so much more to Paris: hidden courtyards and alleys, forgotten museums, beautiful doors and facades, old villages, secret gardens, small shops, local life and simply people - and an endless amount of stories to be told about each place. That’s the Paris I know, the Paris I’ve been living in for more than 15 years, the Paris I’m taking you to.
