Travel blogger’s tip for walking all over Paris in comfort

Paris is a walking and stair climbing city whether you are wandering around Marche aux Puces St. Ouen (Paris’s largest flea market) or on a hunt for treasure at the Louvre and you don’t want sore feet and fatigued legs to ruin your visit.

Review: Travelon Classic Cross-body Bucket Bag

For my recent trip to Paris, Travelon provided me with their Classic Cross-body Bucket bag (#42757) in exchange for my review of the bag.
