Art in a door in Paris

When one sees an open door with interesting things inside, one walks through that door. And that is what we did when we stumbled on an art installation on this fine afternoon in Paris. The installation was at Église des Billettes, a striking looking building in the Marais district. Upon…


Rodin Museum in the rain!

After making a run for it with the heaven’s about to open on us at The Eiffel Tower, we jumped in a cab to The Rodin Museum. This attraction had been on our to-do list and was a recommendation from Elyse’s mum who had been here last year (thanks Ruth!)….


A walk to The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is arguably Paris’ most famous landmark. Due to the relative absence of hills in the French capital (save for Montmartre), it’s hard not to see the Tower from pretty much anywhere. Being up close and personal with it, though, is entirely different. As we’ve noted before, travelling…


First full day in Paris – I love it here!

One of the (many) great things about Paris is that there’s so much to see within walking distance of other attractions. On this glorious Tuesday, our first full day in Paris, we decided to take to the streets and get a feel for the neighbourhood. Wandering up through The Tuileries…


Sesame Street in Paris

While attempting to make our way to the National Picasso Museum, Clarrie decided we needed to make a pit stop at a park. As I’ve said before, this is part of the joy (and sometimes frustration) of travelling with little tikes. What struck us about this park wasn’t the park…


Square Jean XXIII – The park behind Notre Dame Cathedral

Square Jean XXIII is the park on the southern and eastern ‘rear’ sides of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It’s a wonderful tranquil area with swings for the kids, park benches for the adults and flowers for all. With great views of not only Notre Dame, but also the Seine,…


Climbing the Notre Dame Cathedral Towers

Climbing the Notre Dame Cathedral Towers is an absolute must-do while in Paris, especially if you don’t make it up the Eiffel Tower or Arc De Triomphe (ie: me). After going through the cathedral, Clarrie had fallen asleep in Elyse’s carrier, so it was decided I would go up the…


Visiting Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

Notre Dame Cathedral was near the top of my list of things to do while in Paris. The cathedral is a captivating building, with construction taking close to 300 years, starting in the 12th century. Being that it took so long to build, there are a variety of architectural styles…


L’aire de jeux dans le Jardin des Tuileries

Yeah baby – I can type in French! Welcome to Paris Upon arriving in Paris, we dumped our bags in the apartment and headed straight across the road to Tuileries Garden, which is the biggest park I have ever seen. It’s also our front yard. I really did well booking…


The Happiest Caffe in Paris

Happy Caffe has been one of our go-to places for our week in Paris. Situated next door to our apartment on Rue De Rivoli, and serving a fabulous selection of affordable sandwiches, crepes, and most importantly, beer. The owner was great for a chat, and they’re open late which is…
