Why Paris Syndrome is BS.

I first heard of Paris Syndrome when I was living in Korea. There were these chain bakeries and coffee shops all over the place with a Paris Theme.

A Day in Beauvais

I arrived at Beauvais Airport (BVA) quite late. The vast majority of the people on the plane took the bus straight to Paris. I decided to stay and check out this city. Outside the airport was pretty dead. I didn’t notice any taxis and the only bus I saw was for Paris. The man [...]
