We decided to go to Paris.
My wife and I are not frequent travelers, and the decision on Paris was taken with deliberation. On this trip we wanted stable accommodation. We had tiried of past experiences where time seeking new hotels seemed to consume a high percentage of our travel.
We located an apartment for rent by the week in the Globe and Mail newspaper. We decided to go in the Fall, after the rush of tourist season. The appropriate arrangements made, we found ourselves in Paris at the end of October and into November for 10 days. The timing was ultimately set by our ability to book tickets to a Keith Jarrett concert.
The “random walk” concept came to mind a number of years ago as a possible title for an exhibition of photographs of a different travel experience. The title has been resurrected to present the explorations during our trip to Paris. It encompasses day-to-day events and is organized around some
recurring themes that evolved during the 10 day experience.
