Most beautiful walk in the world
Expat John Baxter finds himself in the role of being tour guide of walking tours in the streets of Paris. He vows to make his tours anything but perfunctory. He aims to take his fellow pedestrians on The Most beautiful walk in the world.
If you’re looking for the standard traipse around the tourist traps and well-known landmarks of the “City of Light” you will be on the wrong tour with John Baxter. If you’re interested in discovering Paris off the beaten path, the nooks and crannies and the idiosyncracies of Paris, you will love Baxter’s tours. Baxter confesses that he believes Paris is ultimately the pedestrians perfect city. Ambling around is in fact an art form and favourite past time of flaneurs. John Baxter in his book offers readers a few loosely related walking experiences of the beautiful city, that are tied together by personal anecdotes and interesting facts relating to famous figures such as Scott F. Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Baxter himself is an expat. Married to a French woman. He delivers some interesting tales in this book but just a warning….those stories come with a strong dash of ego and arrogance.
