Lovely video .... enjoyed every part of it... Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful Paris... Just so happens our Son is in Paris this past week with work... Now I got a glimpse perhaps of what he saw... Safe travels!!!!!
Howdy Robert,I intend to spend the weekend of december 7th 2018 in Paris and though I visited this beautiful city several times already I watched your video here again just to get into the right mood.Thanks for sharing this very informative and captivating video buddy.Cordial greetings from William in Bruges,Belgium,Europe
Paris did not disappoint. We had 6 very full days, one day at Vaux-le-Vicomte and Fountainebleau (terrific). Of course the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay left me breathless. What I enjoyed the most was a stroll along the Mouffetard - it felt so much like a local spot for the Parisianne folks. The food was wonderful (Le Souffet a favorite), Eiffle Tower at night is the best time to visit. We stayed in the 6th district near Saint Sulpice church--would do it again.
Great video. Helped me appreciate Paris after our very short visit last week (just one full day) which left us with mixed impressions, leaning towards slightly disappointed to be honest! P.S. That holiday that you didn't know about - that marks the end of WW2 :)
I was on a tight budget for 5 weeks in Paris. The best,cheapest meals were in the Asian district. Good food,huge portions, low price. That was 25 years ago,ad my hotel L'Atlas was only $12/night. It has been renovated and is no longer cheap. Use the "Let's Go" series of books for best deals on the cheap.
thank you so much for this video. I only just discovered it. I loved every minute of it. I watched it over and over to be honest. I've been to Paris but after watching this video, I now feel like I have truly been to Paris as in the moment I've overlooked many things and it was great to see all that detail in here
Did you get robbed there? My father inlaw did almost twice in the same day, he lost everything and then they tried to rob him again on the way to the police station to report the first time! Be careful there don't put your wallet in your front pocket!!
Best to have 2 nylon bags hanging around neck,inside your shirt. One for money of country you visit. Other for passport and US currency. Never in back pockets..they slice your pants with a razor and the wallet drops into their hand. Europe is full of scams.
Thanks for the comeback I'm glad you were okay, really enjoy all your videos, have really learned a lot! I caught the first young gentleman and held him till police came, but it was after my father left for the police dept. then they got him again on the subway, I guess they were gipseys, again great videos, love them!
THE PRETENTIOUS VOICE-OVER CONDESCENDS ON THE VIEWERS, DISTANCING ITSELF. THIS TYPE OF PRESENTATION CATERS ONLY TO PEOPLE WHOSE PARENTS NEVER HUGGED THEM. IT IS FOR PEOPLE WHO VALUE IMPOSED AUTHORITY OVER THEIR OWN HUMANITY.
"Traveling Robert I appreciate your opinion, and I love negative comments... especially in all caps. Thank you!" *<===OH YOU ARE SO WELCOME! I SOMEHOW ANTICIPATED IT, WHICH IS WHY I ALSO WROTE YOU A LONGER ONE.*
WHOEVER CAN'T READ THE FULL LENGTH OF THIS IS UNEDUCATED:
YOU ARE AT LEAST 15 YEARS BEHIND IN THESE FAST-MOVING TIMES, B/C YOUR PRETNETIOUS-TONED STILTED-VOICED AND UNSEEN-FACE-NARRATED UPLOADS CONDESCEND ON THE VIEWERS. THAT WAS THE KIND OF PRODUCTION THAT TELEVISION HAS SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS FOR DECADES JUST BECAUSE WE ALL SO DESPERATELY NEEDED A WINDOW TO THE WORLD, BUT YET NO ONE COULDN'T GET IT PRESENTED IN ANY DIFFERENT FORM. THE BROADCAST TELEVISION CHANNEL BASTARDS OF YESTERYEAR HAD SOME LEGITIMATE EXCUSE IN PRESUMING THAT A PRODUCTION HAD TO HAVE A CERTAIN FORMALITY TO IT, TO BE DIGNIFIED ENOUGH TO ENTER PEOPLE'S HOMES. HOWERVER, AS OF RECENTLY ENOUGH THOUGHT HAS BEEN PASSED ON VLOGGING AND TRAVEL VLOGGING TO REVEAL THAT THIS TYPE OF A PRODUCTION DISTANCES THE VIEWER FROM BOTH THE SUBJECT-PLACE, AS WELL AS FROM THE TRAVELER-PRESENTER. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOU ASPIRE TO APE A TRADITIONAL FORMAL TELEVISION STYLE PRODUCTION. MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE FORGIVEN B/C OF THAT BEING ALL YOU HAD SEEN IN FOREVER. YET THERE YOU ARE, DRESSED LIKE A COMMON STREET DREG. WTF!
THERE ARE IN FACT TRAVEL CHANNELS WHERE THE TRAVELERS-PRESENTERS ARE DRESSED SO POORLY AND PLAINLY THAT ONE WONDERS HOW THEY AFFORDED AIR FARE. HOWEVER THOSE SAME TRAVELERS SCORE HIGHER THAN YOU B/C THEY HAVE FOUND A WAY TO WARMLY PARLAY THAT HONEST INFORMALITY INTO FRIENDSHIP WITH THEIR VIEWERS. THESE INFORMAL TRAVEL CHANNEL UPLOADERS SPEAK TO THE VIEWERS IF THE VIEWERS HAVE SHRUNK THEMSELVES TO SHIRT-POCKET-SIZED LITTLE CO-TRAVELERS WHO PEEK OUT OF THE TRAVELER'S POCKET FOR THE DURATION OF THE PLOAD-JOURNEY. THESE DREG LOOKING TRAVELERS-PRESENTERS HAVE CURIOUSLY WON SOMETHING FAR GREATER IN RESPECT BY UNIFORMLY KEEPING UP THEIR HUMANITY TOWARDS THE VIEWER THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PRESENTATION.
FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU AND YOUR PRODUCTIONS ARE. ARE YOU A GUY WHO IS GONNA NARRATE FROM OFF-SCREEN IN A HOLIER-THAN-THOU ASSHOLE STYLE, AND SHOW YOURSELF ON SCREEN AS THE PITIFUL LITTLE FUNNY MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN IN TE WIZARD OF OZ, OR ARE YOU GOING TO BE A HUMAN BEING WHO COMES ACROSS WITH SOME OVERALL GENUINE WARMTH. WHEN YOU FIGURE THAT OUT, THEN AT LEAST MAKE YOUR PERSONAL IMAGE CONGRUENT WITH YOUR PRODUCTION STYLE.
This is the first time I've watched one of your videos and I found it informative without being boring. Paris is on our wish list, I'll surely re watch this video before we visit to plan our itinerary. Paris is simply beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Thoroughly enjoyed your video from beginning to end. Very well presented and so interesting!! Visited Paris once, but never had the opportunity to be able to see all the extra places youve mentioned here, so was able to indulge. Its always been my fav place in the world. Thank you! :)
Ah....The foreigners think the city of light in France is Paris. Sorry, But in France we say the city of light is Lyon. But good job!
Friendly greetings, from Versailles! Come to our ciy too! =) It-s at 20-30 minutes of our capital, and it's very nice!
If you want to learn quicly , and learn most used words and phrases , this app helped me a lot when i was visiting Paris for a 15 days in my honey moon
The french perople arnt that rude , they actualy admire when they see you trying to speak their language
600,000 walkers frequent Christmas in the Champs Elysees, and there is not only shoping, there are many things to see contrary to other capitals, this figure, huge, explains a few difficulties in terms of security but Paris remains dazzling!
Thanks ... very, very good ... I just visited Paris for three days, but instead of taking taxis or metro, I , my wife and two of my children walked, walked, walked ... when you walk you can get a bether look at every street, building or park .... when we where in the Luxembourg garden there is a presentation of a dance group ... see my two videos of her here on youtube: Jardin du Luxembourg 2017
Guau!! Que belleza de ciudad!! I really want to visit. Heck, I want to move and live there! I'm saving up to go some time in April or May next year. In the meantime... studying my French as much as I can!!! Great video, loved it.
Hi Robert,thanks for this magnificent video on your sightseeing tour of Paris.And as usual your voice is quite entertaining ,typical for a great narrator.I'm truly enchanted.Greetings from William in Bruges,Belgium
Great video. Lots of work went into it obviously. Too bad the commentaries butchered quite a few times the places'names. You gotta learn about silent letters in French or else you are saying something else: Pont (bridge) is pronounced with a silent T. Or else if you pronounced the T you are referring to chicken laying eggs (la ponte des poules). Same with Place de la Bourse, you pronounced Place de la Bouse (cow dung square). R.E.R is pronounced like hare Huh hare (except for the H sound at the beginning) that we don't have in French. Champs Elysee has no S at the end. Passage Vivienne is pronounced Viv...Yen (like the Japanese currency). Don't despair, French is full of silent letters. Basic rule if it ends with a consone it is masculine; with an E it is feminine; like Martin (in is pronounced Mart...Huh without 1st H sound) is a guy. MartinE ( like English Martin)...a girl. All the best!
Thank you for this documentary, good commented.
Couldn't understand why were you so disappointed/angry last day... you had the chance to see one of the most beautiful cityes in the world ! One cannot have everything...
By the way, we all should remember that on May 9.1945 was the day when many nations,including your country, finally defeated fascist Germany, ending the second world war and all the suffering it caused - that's way it's called Victory day !
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
