Some of you will remember how smitten I was with Bonjour 40 by Karen A. Chase. I raved about this book to everyone who'd listen and my sister who was readying herself and family for a 7 week holiday in the UK/Paris/Scotland was all ears.
Karen has done a delightful post on how Bonjour 40 closed the miles between Brisbane, Paris and her home in Virginia ~ pop over and check it out. This is what makes blogging and sharing the love of books so special ... ooh I just love it!
My sis had a Paris to-do-list which included some of Karen's experiences from Bonjour 40 and my request was she visit the crab shack and take of photo of the much talked about Bandit. I emailed Karen asking for directions and my sister visited Dorothee & the famous Bandit at Le Panier de Crabes. She also made me extremely envious devouring croissants like there was no tomorrow and visiting all the places I'm dying to visit.
While skyping my sister I got to check out the view of the Eiffel Tower
from their apartment
and for just one more example of how small our world really is ... while visiting Karen's blog I noticed a comment by another Australian blogger who just happens to live in Brisbane like myself and we are now in touch via twitter and our blogs ... visit Journey's With Noelle.
