The two books that have made my trip so much easier

31 Mar

1) Plan de Paris: This book has an index with 6,000 streets, cross-referenced with the section of the arrondissement map that the street appears on. I just bought it today, and already it’s been indispensable. Besides Chez Marianne’s falafel and Pelligrino, it may be the best 6.50 euro I’ve spent so far.
2) Berlitz French Phrase Book & Dictionary: I hemmed and hawed at Luton over whether to buy this, but I knew it would come in handy helping me fill in the gigantic gaps in my useful vocabulary.
