Paris Movie Walks could be a great buy
As I'm sure you're all aware by now, I'm a massive movie fan, particularly of the Indiana Jones flicks (although I'm still undecided about Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), but I'm also a bit of a lover of all things Parisian. If it sounds like you might share some of my characteristics, then I highly suggest that, before you book your hostel in Paris, you consider buying yourself a copy of Michael Schurmann's Paris Movie Walks, a book that could help you see the city of love in a slightly different way.

According to Karen Bryan of Tips from the T-List, this mighty tome really impressed her, not least because it included both popular and slightly more obscure films, although the author of the book does apparently suggest that you familiarise yourself with three of the pictures mentioned within its pages so that you can relate to the content more.

According to Ms Bryan, there are ten different walks in the guide that encompass several movie locations in Paris - which handily come with maps - and they're all situated quite close to each other for ease's sake, I'd imagine.

"My top Europe travel tip for those planning a Paris trip would be to get a copy of this book," Ms Bryan concluded.

So there you have it, the perfect vacation companion within very easy reach. I know what I'll surely be doing before my next trip to Paris at any rate. Although, movies aside, I've decided what else I'll be getting up to on my vacation. One of my first stops will be the Palais de la Decouverte to check out Condomfiere, the giant condom that's soon to be travelling around the world, as recently reported by AOL News.
