Tour Guide for now five wonderful years, I am a very positive and ongoing person.It is really hard to get away the smile from my face ;o) When I decided to get my guiding license I thought first, that it could be a summer job while on holiday from teaching, but I quickly realized what a great job guiding can be. I use to say, that now, my students are older than before, and are now really very interested in what they want me to speak about. Even better.I started doing tours for friends from California, years ago, then friends of their friends, and I now take people on my tours who become friends ;o)I live in in Normandy, where I was born, but I also lived in Paris, in the US , and in some other countries. That gives me the ability to understand other cultures and to adapt myself. Yet, Paradise is for me "here" in the green pastures of Normandy. Both my grandparents lived through the German occupation, and both were in the French Resistance. I have a very strong connection to my region. That really started my passion for digging in the past. After an education in Normandy, I went studying History and Journalism in Paris at the Sorbonne. As a real History buff, I have created some unique itineraries no one else did before me, like the real Viking tour on the footsteps of the Vikings of Normandy. I try as much as possible to do things the best I can. I am a perfectionist, and I assume. I am married and have two lovely daughters. Besides my family and my job, I love horses. I have horses at home. I will sure see you very soon on one of my Tours.
When you are in Paris you should try to speak French as much as you can! Fortunately Henri helped us and was there whenever we needed him. Paris is magical! From its pretty and remarkable landscapes to its inspiring cafes, Paris has a unique combination of traditional architecture, rich history, pleasant parks and squares, original cuisine and special spirit of life. In Louvre, Henri gave us interesting information and we gained depth of understanding for famous works such as the 'Mona Lisa' and 'Venus de Milo. He bought ticket and we save hours of waiting in line.
