A serialized photo-memoir of my wife Sheila and I’s 5 and 1/2 week trip to Paris from early November through mid-December. We captured the last bits of Fall, right into the holidays in the City of Light.

Expanding availability of the whole series of images for each day is best enjoyed, we believe, via a subscription program, though each book is also available via the regular store.

All links are non-affiliate, meaning the links are chosen only because we feel they add to the enjoyment of the book, providing more information and images.

Clicking on the series name on the Amazon description page, will take one to the series page, with updates to all current volumes. Several new editions of various other days are in-progress.

A few original signed images of Paris are also available on Amazon Marketplace.

Plus several novellas and short stories set in Paris are also completed.

Discovering Paris was a daily adventure.

We hope you’ll enjoy these daily excursions inside of Paris as much as we did.


Adan & Sheila



Some days, our outings into Paris from our tiny apartment were simply for a few hours, though usually in the early afternoon, when the day would warm up from the cold of a Paris winter morning.

We would choose to do that, rather than a full day out, sometimes because we wanted to sleep in, or read and rest in the apartment, or simply because we were pooped and just plain needed to rest. 😉

This particular day, I can tell from the photos, was a late morning, before the lunch rushes. Maybe the afternoon forecast didn’t look good, or we were doing groceries or laundry that afternoon. Either of which could be an adventure in itself!

In my Paris fiction work, I of course try to bring out the allure of being in Paris for my characters, but I almost always have them involved in day to day activities, like groceries and laundry.

In Paris, those are an experience onto themselves. 😉

Below then, is the route from our apartment, into the Severin Latin Quarter area, and to Square Rene Viviani across from Notre Dame and to the side of Shakespeare and Company (which ironically, is the reverse path I’ve been reviewing and editing in an early chapter for “Slumming in Paris, Part Two, Antone and the Children”!

Either from Blvd Saint-Michel, or up Rue de la Harpe from Blvd Saint Germain, one enters the St Severin area of small streets chock full of small shops and places to eat.

Paris, in our sixth day in the city, seemed to have spent itself showing us how rich in interest it was.

And yet, it had only begun!

My next ebook deals with our trying to find the Eiffel Tower, via walking, and then being there. 😉
