Today, we follow in the footsteps of the great Ernest Hemingway in Paris. Our guide is the Roam and Golightly blog, which visited those places where Hemingway lived and wrote during the 20s.
By now you will have noticed that all this week’s posts have been about walking. Why? All will be revealed tomorrow. If you can’t wait, though, visit the Facebook page here.
“If you’re lucky enough to have lived in Paris, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” Words from my man Ernest Hemingway which are all too true. As huge fans of his ability to encapsulate a time, a place and a mood within a streamlined amount of verbs and adjectives, Hemingway’s zeal for Paris was an added bonus for both me and Luke. About halfway through our time here, I came upon this article and was instantaneously sold into the idea of walking in the footsteps of one of my literary heroes. We adapted our journey slightly and gathered a bit more information by rereading “A Moveable Feast,” Hemingway’s memoir of sorts about his expatriate writer years while living in Paris.
