Great memories of Paris. We are going again in April, Springtime In Paris with places like Shakespeare

We always stayed in that neighborhood when we visited Paris. We stayed in a wonderful small hotel then we got an apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Lovely memories ..

I’m so excited to visit this cafe!!

I so want to go back to Paris now ..just to see the cafe. ☕ ..I love the look of it too.

Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth (1977 or 78) and I was a young student who had decided to take a year off in the middle of my undergraduate degree, I did what every self-respecting backpacker did when in Paris: I spent a night with a whole bunch of other young, impecunious backpackers upstairs from Shakespeare and Co. I even took a really nice picture of George while I was there. I still have it.

I haven’t been back there since 1992, despite the fact that I spent a month in Paris just this May. Your article has inspired me to go and visit again the next time I’m in my favourite city in the world!
