As we saw yesterday hundreds-of-thousands of people are marching in France in the aftermath of a week which contained almost unbelievable events. I am sure that today’s march in Paris will contain even higher numbers. Comments by the loved ones of those killed have shown the full range of human emotion, unsurprising having them been thrust uninvited in to the media in the aftermath of their losses.
Politicians have expressed a wide range of views, as one would also expect.
However, as travellers is there anything that we can particularly?
Well I think there is.
We need to book a trip to France – Paris, Marseilles, Nice – all are great cities with a lot to offer for a weekend or longer. Why not look at taking that trip you have always thought about. Risk? Yes, there is risk but is it any more than it was before these unannounced attacks. Record numbers of security staff patrol the streets and visitors should feel comforted as to their safety.
So, as we are inspired by the sight of thousands taking a stand today, why not reach for the laptop and look at booking a visit. It’s really what’s needed.
For me, I’ve booked a weekend to Paris in February, picking up a couple of nights at Hyatt and taking the Eurostar for the first time in a few years.
