THESE DAYS, Adrian Kalvinskas isn't traveling much, but he's learning a lot about the world.

Last year, The Times published an article by Lois Langley on renting an apartment in Paris ("Two Ways to Find a Paris Vacation Apartment," March 10, 1991). My wife and I recently decided to take Langley's advice. This past August, we reserved an apartment on the Left Bank for two weeks, from the agency Langley chose, Paris Connection in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. The experience was everything the article described. Jim Buongiorne, who owns Paris Connection and operates out of Paris, greeted our taxi when we arrived at the apartment.
