Spring is in the Air

Salut tout le monde, I'm signing on from Paris as I run around today to get everything set up for my tour this weekend. This is the first time I've been able to run around outside in a short sleeve T-shirt and it's obvious that the temperatures are on the rise here in Paris. The cafes are spilling with life out onto the corners, and the ice tea I'm having on Rue Cler right now is hitting the spot. On Sunday I finished up another tour in Prague, and made my way back to Paris yesterday. The last few weeks have been quite busy for me. My team and I have been scrambling to line everything up for our big St. Paddy's day weekend celebration. We just submitted our order for 50 Tshirts that will feature skulls and cross bones with a clover patch over the eye. Don't ask why--it just looks cool!
Here in Paris, I've enjoyed all the entrpreneurial challenges imaginable: the Eiffel Tower isn't taking reservations this week, the hostel double charged us, wifi was difficult to find and set up etc. All that said, running my business that has just recently turned the corner bookings wise is incredibly rewarding. Last semester we had 85 bookings total with 100% positive reviews. This semester, we topped 200 bookings at the end of last month, and that's only 4 weeks into the semester. I'm immensely fortunate to have a stellar team on my side, and the only way we can go is up!
Andy and his crew were awesome. They helped us navigate the city and showed us its innumerable historic sites (Colosseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain, etc.) with the option of going to Easter Mass at the Vatican if you pick the right weekend. All I have to say was that being in the third row at...Joshua Dyer, Bridgewater State University ~ University of Limerick, Spring 2016
