As I was strolling around Place Monge with my new friend Thomas, I asked, “Comment dit-on ‘to wander’ en français ?”
He replied, “Aller flâner: to wander without a specific purpose.”
“Errer est humain, flâner est parisien.”
-Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
It is the Parisian way of life. It is also my new favorite phrase.
