Perfect Packables for a Winter City Break ~ Paris

November 29, 2013Column: FeaturedColumn: Perfect Packables

Paris lights up in winter but temperatures are brisk so pack warmly and save room for new purchases! The perfect, dreamy spot for a city break; you can climb the Eiffel Tower, stroll the shimmering Avenue des Champs-Élysées, snap the Arc de Triomphe and end the day sipping cinnamon-infused hot wine. December especially is generally cold and often rainy so pack an umbrella!

Planning a trip or just love Mother India? Read about the color, chaos and charismatic spirit that an adventure in India is certain to offer. Mark Twain sums it up: "…nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds."
