Gab & Jam Episode 6: Paris Pluses and Minuses

Prejippies' Paris Preview Gab & Jam Episode 6  --Blooming Prejippie Zine

We’ve been watching YouTube videos, talking to friends and family, and taking copious notes. Finally, our trip is upon us. Here’s what we are most looking forward to and least looking forward to on our upcoming trip to Paris. –Let me let you know right now that this video was a blast to make so make sure you check out the video (at the bottom of this post) or the podcast (below in the post) to know how it went down.

Most looking forward to:

  1. Music stores (an entire 2 streets dedicated to music stores; looking for a boutique-like environment)

  2. Running along the Sienne and to the Louvre

  3. Sightseeing/Museums/Seeing old architecture/Tourist attractions

  4. Clothes shopping (Collette and thrift shopping)

  5. Food (great bread, pastries)

  6. Bus Tour/River cruise (included in Paris PASS)

  7. Metro and other public transportation

  8. Very walkable (just our vacation style)

  9. Experiencing new culture

  10. Using downloaded apps to help navigate culture (food, signs, language, restroom locations)

  11. Getting as much fabulous footage as possible

  12. Accordion music

Not looking forward to:

  1. Heard the French can be less-than-friendly (did not learn as much French as I had thought I would)

  2. Language barrier

  3. Pickpockets? (We are from urban America, but crime on vacation??)

  4. Potentially walking through dog poop (We've heard their culture does not require pet owners to pick up after their pets.)

  5. Food (Not knowing what weird things they do in regards to food preparation and presentation; and odd times to eat--restaurants closed from 2ish to 7ish??; don't want to end up at McDonald's or some other Americanized chain)

  6. Outside urinals?!

  7. Roadside bathrooms?????

  8. Bathrooms are hard to come by

  9. Long lines (tourist attractions/restaurants)

  10. Not looking forward to spending alot of money

  11. Long flight/jetlag

  12. Charging using a different type of adapter

  13. Carrying my heaviest camera around everywhere

No matter what happens though, good or bad, we’re hoping to find more inspiration for creating new music, which is what this blog and our YouTube channel is all about.

And, of course, we’ll put together some videos after we’re back just for you. This leads us to our closing question:
