I remember the first time I went to Paris, I was having a great time enjoying some French baguettes and walking with my companion. We were talking about our experience at the Louvre, L-o-u-v-r-e. If you haven’t been to the Louvre, you definitely need to go there because seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ can definitely make the trip worth it. You’re looking at history. You’re looking at something that the whole world has fallen in love with. You’re looking at everything and anything that is great about European culture.
Well with that said, our discussion was kind of rudely interrupted when somebody sped past us on a scooter. Well the phrase “sped past us” might be a bit too much. Maybe I’m being over-reacting a bit. After all, if you objectively measure his rate of speed, it’s really just a bit over our walking speed. Still, it was enough to distract us from our conversation.
I raise this issue with you because if it turns out if you really want to get the very best out of your trip to Paris, you might want to take matters into your own hands as far as mobility is concerned. Because, let’s face it, until and unless your boss gives you a three-month pass to enjoy everything there is to enjoy about Paris, that two-week vacation will go by like a flash. It really would.
This place is so packed with so many attractions, so many distractions that it really is very easy to burn through all that time. At the end of that experience, you still get this really annoying feeling that you really did not do too many things. You see where I’m coming from? Pretty frustrating, right?
So, do yourself a big favor. You might want to invest in a balance board. While this is not at the same level as the scooter that I talked about in my story, it does allow you to move through the city at a high enough rate of speed where you’ll be able to take in all of the sights in a very orderly and efficient way. You want to check out as many of the walk spaces in Paris as you can, and it’s really hard to do on foot. When you’re on a balance board, you’ll be able to get from point A to point B moving quickly and efficiently.
Do yourself a big favor. Get yourself a balance board. It doesn’t really cost that much money, but it definitely goes a long way in helping you maximize every red cent’s worth of value from your French trip. Maybe you’re going to France for the 100th time. Maybe you’re there for the first and only time. Whatever the case may be, get the most value out of it. See it. All of it. As much as you can on a balance board.
