A new endeavor

I've begun studying to be a professional French-English translator. While looking up translations online, I met a super nice French guy who invited me to participate in the creation of this website: Online Paris Tour.

Online Paris Tour is a free website that guides you step by step through the streets and metro stations of Paris using real photos with red circles and arrows drawn on them to show you exactly where to go as you follow your friendly tour guide Thibaut’s pointers along the way to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Latin Quarter and more. Interesting historical facts and practical advice are offered along the way, but the main draw of this site are the clear directions which ensure that you will never get lost, even if you have no knowledge of French or the city, so long as you have an internet connection or a device loaded up with the Online Paris Tour e-book. People who were considering paying for a guided tour or tour bus can save money by using this site instead. Those who were planning to wing it and count on their GPS or maps will find that navigating Paris' subway system with Thibaut at your side is much simpler!

Soon, other tours of the lesser-known gems of Paris will be posted, allowing for a more customized tourist experience. You can read more about it here.

If you know anyone planning a trip to Paris, have them check it out. : )
