Just returning from a recent trip to Paris and never once considered canceling my trip. I know there are many travelers that have cancelled or are reconsidering travel plans to France after the recent terrorist attacks, but in all honesty I actually felt very safe during my stay in Paris.
For now there is a comforting presence of the French Army and Police throughout the city at many key locations such as the Eiffel Tower and outside of Printemps and Galeries Lafayette to name just a few. Entry into the museums, department stores and many shops comes with some added security, however it seems to be very quick and not as big of an inconvenience as one would think.
At the beginning of the trip I saw a low number of visitors at the museums and monuments around Paris and as the week went on I could see this changing for the better. After speaking with many French taxi drivers, friends and suppliers I was amazed by the resilience of the French people. Life is indeed getting back to normal and with every passing day I could see an increase of life and vibrance coming back to the city.
