About

Originally from Toronto, Canada, I came to Paris in the 1990s. Two decades later, I’m still here. Come with me while I roam the city, the country, and beyond.

  1. I have just stumbled across your blog….and I love it! So inspirational! Love your perspective. Thanks so much, Juliet in Paris.

  2. Me too. I also stumbled across your blog and enjoy it immensely for these reasons: no advertising, no big ego or self-promotion, a fresh, sincere perspective of Paris (and other cities) from someone who lives there, your humor and irreverence.

  3. Gee, thanks a lot Juliet. Just when I thought I had some free time I had to go and find your fantastic blog. Now I’ll be busy delving into your previous posts for the next few days. Great words. Lovely pictures. Thank you for this.

  4. Juliet, Terrific blog. We have family visiting a student from Toronto in Paris next week and found everything you’ve posted just in time! Terrific photography and the insightful posts are a fine compliment. Please keep this going.

  6. So glad I stumbled upon your blog. You have gorgeous photos of Paris and other countries like Italy that I visited long ago. Thank you for such a wonderful website.

  7. Have been reading your blog for at least a year now. I love the tidbits of information and that you are not afraid to express your opinions. Am retired and planning to live in Paris for part of the year. Your blog continues to assure me that Paris is the place to be! Thanks for the constant enticements.

  8. I have been reading your blog since 2013, when I discovered your post about Antwerp, where I lived for a memorable year back in the early 1970s. My mother was Parisian, her father was Belgian, and I am able to hold on to precious recollections of years, travel, and people gone by as I read your entries. They are so evocative and well-written. I am reading The End of Eddy right now, having finished Hillbilly Elegy earlier this year. Both are enlarging my world view, for sure. Thanks for writing this interesting blog, and please continue to share your insights, even if you relocate back to North America, as you hint above!

    • Hello Christine and thanks so much for your kind and lengthy comment. Over the years I’ve communicated regularly (and/or sporadically) with many of my loyal readers … I’ve even met a few in person which was great fun. So it’s nice to hear from you at last. I enjoy blogging because it’s not static, it moves and changes all the time. I guess I see myself as a chronicler, just bopping around taking photos and talking about what’s new, what’s old, what’s up, what’s down. I’m off to Holland in two weeks, so stay tuned for a report from The Hague and Delft. You mentioned Antwerp. I might return there after Holland (it’s so close.)

      Funny you should mention The End of Eddy. Two hours ago I purchased his latest novel, History of Violence (Histoire de la Violence). As for your compliment re my well-written entries – thank you! I hope, then, that you might be interested in reading my own book when it comes out towards the end of the year. It’s a memoir. I’ll post news of it on my blog when it’s ready. Thanks again for writing, Christine. Take care.
