GET PAID TO TRAVEL
Right now, you could be enjoying a week at a tiny hotel on a small Caribbean island, relaxing on a fine stretch of white sand, listening to the palms rustle overhead… for FREE. In fact, you could be getting paid to do it.
If you’ve always dreamed of far-flung travels… on someone else’s dime… then this is your opportunity to make it happen.
On June 30, 2008, I’ll show you how you can get started — and reveal to you real-world strategies to access this lifestyle — for less than $20.

Dear Parler Paris Reader,
It was a whirlwind, but successful trip to the Big Apple, having found an apartment for my daughter and gotten the process well underway to sign contracts and submit (yet another) co-op board application.
To all of you who wrote in to correct the height of the Empire State Building — thanks! You see, even with research, you can’t count on the information being correct, but with you readers paying such close attention, it’s impossible to stray too far. So, here’s the real scoop:
While the Empire State Building is not the highest structure in the world at present. The tallest man-made structure is the Burj Dubai, a skyscraper under construction in Dubai that reached 636 meters (2,087 feet) in height on May 12, 2008 and the Warsaw radio mast in Poland, raised to 646.38 meters (2,121 feet) in 1974 and destroyed in 1991, remains the tallest structure ever built. It is, however, the third highest observation deck having surpassed the Eiffel Tower when it was built in 1931 by 94 meters (309 feet).
Thanks to Wikipedia for this fascinating trivia and correction!
After running the photo of the view of the Empire State Building from the window of the West Village apartment, readers wrote in that they once lived in the building having recognized the view and was at one time President of the co-op Board. Isn’t that an amazing coincidence? They even went further to say that the profit on the sale bought them a very nice apartment on Avenue Victoria in the first district of Paris! So, this confirmed our thoughts that this was going to be a good property and good investment. “En plus, near the building on West 4th Street is “Claudes” — “the only place in New York where you can get an authentic croissant…made by an authentic ‘grumpy’ Frenchman!”
The New York property market is quite healthy, thanks to the foreigners who are purchasing with strong euros, much like myself. If it weren’t for the Paris properties which have g
reatly increased in value, and an equity release from Banque Patrimoine et Immobilier (BPI), we wouldn’t be making this purchase at all.
Still, it is very satisfying to be back in Paris on a bright and sunny summer morning and looking forward to all the upcoming events, to which I so look forward every year.
This coming Saturday is the annual “Fête de la Musique,” always on the longest day of the year, June 21st. Visit fetedelamusique for a complete program, but expect lots of other ‘unofficial’ musicians and performers to be on the streets taking advantage of the enormous street-side audiences.
The following weekend, you are invited to the premiere exhibition on Friday, June 27th from 7 to 9 p.m. of winning photographs from “Prix de la Photographie Paris 2008″ and also Px3′s Human Condition competition, juried by international photography decision-makers at Acte 2 Galerie, 41, rue d’Artois, 8th Paris. The exhibition will be on display until June 29th, but if you cannot visit the gallery, you can view all this year’s winning photographs at Px3.fr
And that same evening, is “La Nuit du Feu 2008″ for the 57th time, when the firemen of Paris (those stunning young, handsome, well-built men!) perform amazing gymnastic feats at the Palais des Congrès de Paris. See pompiersparis.fr for more information.
The next day, don’t miss the annual Gay Pride Parade on Saturday, June 28th. The parade starts at 2 p.m. at Place Denfert Rochereau and winds its way through the city down avenues Denfert-Rochereau and de l’Observatoire, down boulevards Saint-Michel and Saint-Germain, across pont de Sully, down boulevard Henri IV, ending at Place de la Bastille.

Hope to see you at some of these June festivals!
