Paris trip: How to enjoy a holiday in Paris? Just walk 

On this chilly Easter Friday, I pack myself in double jackets and uggs, download the map and shove my faithful pocket umbrella in the bag. The biting cold has made me lose my appetite a bit, so I grab an apple and at 9 am sharp, I stand on the streets of the Grands Boulevard, waiting for the GPS to set straight. With a day to explore the French capital, I’ve set my priorities straight. When in Paris, you walk. You walk to school, you walk to work, you walk to the station, you walk into a relationship… you just walk. From my hotel, I walk towards the Place de la Republique. Named that way to celebrate the French Republic, the square is symbolic of demonstrations that start or end there. Marianne’s statue stands tall, with a few youngsters buzzing under it. As the morning sun beams across, I proceed towards the Louvre Museum [ . . ]
