When Australian Jane Paech moves to Paris, her visions of afternoons in bijou bistros and bookshops on the Left Bank are kept in check by the needs of a young family and a long to-do list that includes apartment-hunting, school selection, and multiple trips to IKEA. Through a collection of sharp observations, insightful travel articles and laugh-out-loud anecdotes, A Family in Paris conveys the joys and difficulties of living in this most famous of cities. It introduces us to the Parisians and their eccentricities, explores the intricate rituals of daily life, and takes us beyond the well-trodden tourist sites to the best eating spots, boutiques, museums and markets that only a local could know about. Frank, intimate and beautifully photographed, A Family in Paris is about making a home in a strange land, finding a community, and discovering the joy of renewal.
A lovely, lovely book and a great read if you are planning a visit to Paris with or without your family. Lots of insider tips woven into the story. Also includes up-to-date websites for personal pre-trip research. Jane Paech writes in an enjoyable inclusive way and you feel like you are skipping along the streets of Paris with her. Great for the armchair traveller as well. Pictures are a mix of personal and professional which makes the book visually appealing as well. Highly recommended.
