Why Are the Stores Closed?
You remembered your passport but forgot to check the dates of holidays? Stores are closed and no one can meet with you? Or you planned your trip, checked holidays but forgot to ask: Do businesses close for one day or three? A week?
There’s nothing as quiet as Paris Easter Monday. Streets are empty. A few restaurants and shops are open but a vibrant city is as quiet as downtown Los Angeles or Houston on a Sunday afternoon. Don’t waste your time and energy. Make part of your planning a holiday search. Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_holidays_by_country
before you book a flight.
