Bonjour, c’est moi! (Hello, it’s me!)

Bonjour. My name is Paige and I am the founder of Paris by Paige, a boutique travel tour company for women to Paris and France. I am a true Francophile and began my journey at the tender age of 5 (Merci Maman!). I have been speaking French and learning about French culture all of my life and am now able to share that with my family, friends and clients. As a private tour guide my greatest pleasure is sharing the beauty and enchantment of the City of Lights. I love to see eyes light up as the Eiffel Tower twinkles and smiles appear magically after eating the best crêpe with Nutella they have ever had.

I started blogging because I wanted to share my experiences about Paris with others. I wanted them to see it from the perspective of a wife, mom, traveler and funny woman, who is just like them. To embrace the blessings, quirks and challenges of being immersed in another culture. I also wanted to have one destination for practical information and travel tips to make every traveling woman’s life easier.

Lately I am so proud of the progress that my son is making in French. He is trilingual knowing, English, French and German. As an expected learning response, he understands what I say in French yet responds in English. He has now successfully crossed the mind bridge and is replying in French! Magnifique! I knew that being a foreign language evangelist for children would pay off.

The one thing that I want people to remember about my blog is that travel and language learning can enrich your life in many ways! No matter where you are in your journey, Paris is Always a Good Idea!
