    Going deaf in Paris

    December 22, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    We landed in Paris on time and since there was only about 35 people on the place we got through customs pretty quickly. Lynds found us right away and we got a cab. Ty was impressive speaking fluent French to the driver. Of from what I could hear. Due to a head cold my ears were clogged and I could not hear very well or monitor the volume of my voice. It was horrible.

    Our flat was not ready but we were able to drop our bags off and we went for a delight pizza lunch, with lots of wine. After we went back to the flat, had more wine and got ready to explore our area.

    First night was exploring La Marias. We found cute shops and books stores and ended the night at another great Italian restaurant. Italian food is great here.

    52 Foubourg St Denis

    What a nice way to end our trip here with a dinner at this spot! This was a lovely yet cool place just below our flat. We were just planning on drinking some hot chocolate and figure out another dinner spot but out of laziness, we stuck around. Glad we did because it was a very delicious meal enjoyed by the two of us! The place had a warm minimalist design (exposed walls, neutral furnishings and great wood tones all throughout) - it almost reminded me of something in Vancouver - which means we're doing something right in our city - just not with Vancouver pricing 😅 and the 2-hour seating limit.Read more

    Notre Dame - we are safe just barely

    June 6, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    After a lovely reunion with my second cousin Laura, Nancy and their daughter Ari at Montmartre, we returned to the Left Bank across from Notre Dame Cathedral​. As we entered the plaza in front of the cathedral, it began to sprinkle. Since we were just recovering from being drenched with a cool rain and small hail while walking down the steps from Sacre Coeur, I asked Dan if he wanted to enter the line to visit Notre Dame although we had been at that same spot yesterday taking the typical tourist photos and reading about the cathedral. He declined to go inside so we stopped momentarily to put on our rain gear. We cut through the waiting line and had just entered the street leading back to our apartment when we heard 2 gunshots. Looking over our shoulders, we saw hundreds of people either hit the ground or run in all directions, mainly toward us. Everyone was screaming in panic. Dan grabbed my hand and told me to run, but with my knee problem, all I could manage was a slightly faster shuffle. People ran past us like we were standing still while gendarmes were running the other direction back toward the cathedral and sirens were blaring all around us. Needless to say, we are thankful for the timing that allowed us to be 10 seconds away from a terrifying incident. From what we can read in French on TV, there was one assailant armed with a hammer and yelling "C'est pour Syria". Not sure if this made the news in the states but it seemed to be a major but brief event here in Paris in light of recent terrorist attacks in Europe. We are safe and glad to be returning home on Thursday.Read more
