French kissing? Call ze Love Police!
Blog Guy, I need some travel advice. My wife and I want to go someplace really romantic, where folks are free to be very much in love. Any suggestions?
Of course. I’m an incurable romantic, too. I’d say Paris. City of lights, city of love…
Look at this photo above. A young couple, very much in love, and the urge to express their feelings hits them right in the middle of a busy street. It’s just like that romantic Beatles song.
Anyway, you try doing that most places, and cars will just run right over you. Won’t even slow down. Don’t even get me started on what happens if you try it in downtown Hong Kong. But in Paris, the Love Police swoop in, stop traffic on a busy street, and let them enjoy the moment without being bothered.
Sounds perfect, Blog Guy. By the way, we also want a place where we can have fun driving around from place to place in our car without a lot of traffic jams. Is Paris good for that, too?
Did you LOOK at this photo? During the Season of Love, nearly every street is blocked by young couples writhing in passion. If vehicular mobility is important to you, Las Vegas is nice this time of year…
