This is the third Queer Martha treasure hunt that takes you to some of the hidden gems of Paris. Check out the Romantic Treasure Hunt here and the Trip Through Time Hunt here. The hunts take about 4 hours each, though you are encouraged to stop to eat and drink throughout the trip. The treasure hunts don't actually lead you to a final pile of booty - the treasure is getting through the course and living to tell the tale.
I read this beautiful essay by poet Henri Cole the other day, and it inspired me to put up another Parisian Treasure Hunt. I found Henri's piece to be immensely moving, especially since today is the one-year anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo attacks. As Henri's mother says, let us all remember to put more commas and semi-colons in our lives and remember to reveal the soul’s capacity for compassion, sacrifice, and endurance.
This treasure hunt starts in the Luxembourg Gardens. You will need a metro card. DO NOT do this hunt on a Sunday.
