    A lot of fun

    I enjoyed this essay about a girl who spends 40 days in Paris to celebrate her 40th birthday. It was so much fun I want to visit myself. Maybe for my 75th birthday. Thanks Karen Chase. I loved it.

    The perfect travel memoir

    For many women, regardless of age, traveling to somewhere romantic and exotic like Paris is on our lifetime wish list. I loved reading about Karen Chase's experience turning 40 in Paris and celebrating her birthday by doing something she always wanted to. As a woman in my 30s who traveled to Paris when I was younger, I gobbled this book up and enjoyed the amazing photographs and details of all the things Karen did and saw while in Paris: some things you would know to do in Paris and some hidden gems that make me want to return ASAP - maybe when I turn 40! Women of all ages will enjoy this travel memoir and want to start planning the trip they've always wanted to take - with their girlfriends, family or alone! The perfect read, quick and full of great photography and inspiration!
