“Each in his own way imagines Paradise; since childhood I have envisioned it as a library.” –Jorge Luis Borges Since the launch of Paris Through Expatriate Eyes in 2001 I have enjoyed access to most of the authors writing about Paris in English.

No one should have a bad meal in Paris! Whether a 2-star restaurant or a local bistro there should always be an excellent rapport qualité prix– relationship between price and quality. At my favorites you will be treated as a regular and have a satisfying experience. Just tell them  “Terrance sent you.”


Paris au Flaneur With the memories remaining of our recent visit to Paris, one of the most prominent is the time that my wife, Dana, and I spent with you on our day tour. Your knowledge of the “City of Light,” your historic anecdotes, and your enthusiasm for life were all wrapped together to create not really a city tour, but a personal Paris experience that will live forever in our minds. –James and Dana Melton
