Then I thought: maybe there is a service here that someone like moi could perform. I will check out Paris apartments. Corporations and universities have staff who do this for the people they send overseas, but what about vacationers, especially non French-speaking? One can cancel hotel nights if you're not happy. For a vacation rental, once you've arrived, it's darn near impossible, without forfitting your entire prepaid rent.
The ideas germinated. I gathered information, read reviews and compared website hosting sites, visited apartments, and, the most time consuming part: mulling things over. What should the name be. Paris Check Out or CheckOut? Settled on Paris CheckOut. Then voila! I signed up at weebly.com and got the basics up and published in a day. Of course, I fiddle with it endlessly.
