A friend who is lucky enough to spend a week in Paris with her other half asked whether I could think up an Experimental Travel List for a little bit of fun. I thought why not, and so I asked the husband if he had any ideas. From Page 62 of The Lonely Planet Guide To Experimental Travel, he read this out loud:
Create a stream of consciousness by following your subconscious urges, free from the censoring voice of reason. Afterwards, look back on your journey - where you went, what you did - and analyse it for psychological insights.
So friend, before the above leads you to wandering about rather gormless in gay paree, do opt for the 'I'm a Girl and I'm in Paris' version (list inspired after hours of online activity):
1. Seek out Sabbia Rosa and get yourself fitted by the owner herself. A self-taken photo with owner Moana Moatti would be most respected.
Easy Cop Out: Silky Filmy Materials ain't cheap so you can say No. Suggest hubby to read THIS so that he would be extra indulgent.
2. Eat a
macaroon macaron and take a picture of the angels covered ceiling at Laduree. A little takeaway box for the Kittens would not go amiss.
3. Purchase some Diptyque scented candles for home.
4. Take a picture of a man dressed in bondage at the Musee de l'Erotisme.
Easy Cop-Out: None. Don't be a prude, woman.
5. Buy a pair of 37 and a half pair of Christian Louboutin strappy heels pour moi.
Have fun and don't get hurt.
