I love all things travel, esp when it involves Paris. This book CROWDSOURCING PARIS follows a cautious writer as he accomplishes 12 adventures his followers have chosen for him to do while in the City of Light. I love the way the author JH Bunting weaves a little French history into his storytelling, & there are gems throughout that make me laugh out loud, along with moments that cause me to marvel at his vulnerability.
“Paris ruins you, makes you vain, makes you drink expensive bits of coffee in tiny cups, makes you talk about yourself. Hypothesis: Perhaps I was vain before Paris. I just didn’t have as much to brag about.” Wow! Haven’t we all been there? These places bring out another side of us sometimes, for better or worse.
I love checking out crowdsourced projects. I love seeing what’s being offered for our investment, and I adore that we have this means of making people’s dreams come true. This is how the author got to Paris, and the adventures he accomplishes (akin to bold dares in some instances) are hilarious and even cringe-worthy (in a good way!). It’s neat to see the author overcome fear, hesitation, & ultimately himself. I’ve had profound revelations as I’ve read through this, one in particular about overcoming fear and how the fear may never fully leave but that you have to choose to step past it.
Crowdsourcing Paris is a quick read, & it’s so good, a must-have for anyone who’s been to Paris or who wants to go. Visit this link and see for yourself. Or click the CROWDSOURCING PARIS book below:
