Parisian streets are teeming with beautiful window displays of chocolates and confections. And they cause arguments with husbands.
You see, my husband is one of those travelers with a very strict agenda like GET TO THE LOUVRE AT A DECENT TIME SO WE DON”T HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE FOREVER.
In contrast, my style is more spontaneous as in LETS HEAD TOWARDS THE LOUVRE BUT GIVE OURSELVES PERMISSION TO CHANGE PLANS IF SOMETHING ELE CATCHES OUR EYE.
Especially if there’s an inviting window display.
Because these chocolate shops are sprinkled ALL over Paris from wide boulevards to narrow back alleys, you’d think I’d get tired of them and there wouldn’t be a need to look at each and every one. But no, I thwarted our momentum a few times because I had to stop and contemplate all of them.
I agree that avoiding waiting in lines at important sights like the Louvre is important, but how can you not stop to ogle these windows?
These chocolates are designed to look like tasty olives.
When it comes to enjoying a new place, do you allow yourself time to linger at sights along the way or are you focused on the final destination?
