I’m not sure if you saw the recent Yahoo Travel “10 Best Places to Explore theUnderworld.”
They were very cool places and if you are a dedicated traveler, some (if not all) seem to be great places to visit.
However, I’m baffled as to why the Paris Catacombs were not included.

First of all, thanks so much for visiting my first Blog. Not too sure how many folks at first are going to visit with me. I don’t think too many will see this first one unless you’ve gone back into the archives.
I think the reason for this is that, at this point, I haven’t built up a following. But I’m working on that as we speak. I met with my friend Joel who is an expert at creating content, marketing and developing an audience through blogging and he is guiding me through this process.
Stew takes you on a walking tour of buildings, places, and sites significant to the theme of each of his books. But most importantly, you will learn the intricate stories of the people and places that many other tours do not.
Mr. Ross brings the streets of Paris to life, making it possible for you to stand on the very spots where the grand and tragic events of the French Revolution took place. If you are looking for more than just the typical tourist experience in Paris, then this book is must reading!
