‘The Travel Bug has just returned from a long weekend in the City of Lights. In between drinking champagne on the Left Bank, he uncovered these fascinating facts about Paris…’

He drank too much champagne and ate too many baguettes, but he enjoyed unearthing all the interesting stuffs…


Paris has around 470k trees and every single one of them is measured. Every. Single. One. Travel Bug doesn’t think he would be very good at this job because it doesn’t sound like he’d get much time to nap…


There are more dogs in Paris than children. The Travel Bug thinks this is the best thing about the city.

He loves all doggos and, if he lived in Paris, he would be able to pet them all the time.  And there would hardly be any noisy kids trying to grab his nose and chew him.  Children seem to think he’s a toy…

The Locked Apartment

A Paris apartment was left locked for 70 years but its rent was always paid on time. When the mysterious renter of the property died and the apartment door was finally unlocked, artwork valued at 2 million Euros was discovered.

Travel Bug always keeps his door locked in case someone tries to steal the pictures he paints for his human’s fridge.

Do you have any other fascinating facts about Paris for the Travel Bug?
