proust q & a…prêt à voyager



I live vicariously through fellow francophile Anne Ditmeyer’s blog, Prêt à Voyager. A graphic designer with a penchant for travel, she is living a fabulously creative + successful life in Paris! With a background in art history, photography, and anthropology, her posts are always a delight. My personal favorite is her Boarding Pass series, where she features fellow travelers. I’ve learned quite a bit more about Paris and have many new, exciting places to visit…merci Anne!
