    Wow what a view

    August 22, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    At the top of the Champs Elysess is the Arc de Triomphe – built from 1808 to 1836 it was built at the orders of Emperor napoleon to commemorate the victory of his troops in Austerlitz in 1805. Our visit was a “last minute impulse” type of thing and I am so glad that we went with it. The Arc de Triomphe sits in the middle of a massive 12 pointed roundabout and is accessed by a tunnel (so that visitors can avoid dicing with death in the Parisian traffic). We duly made our way underground and having purchased a ticked and passed bag inspection and the metal detectors, climbed the tight spiral stairs the 50m to the attic level (I wish I’d actually counted the steps… it was a LONG way up) and then another set up to the platform roof where we enjoyed the most amazing view including back down the Champs Elysess to the Lourve, the Port de la Denence, Sacre Coeur and of course the Eiffel Tower.Read more

    May 3, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Another amazing day walking all over Paris. Paul is very good with directions and Metro etc. We loved the Rodin gallery...very cool to see the Kiss and the Thinker up close. Visited the Gallerie Lafayette amazing... St Chapelle, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower. We had supper at the neighbourhood authentic French cuisine Le Bistrot Gourmand du Haut Marais on rue Charles Francois Dupuis. Food was so good...lovely wine...memorable after a wonderful day.Read more

    S: Paris 3.0 (2)

    March 15, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Once we finally had the energy to get up and go, the only thing we planned on for our first evening was to walk towards food😅 (pics to follow). It poured along our walk towards the 3rd district. It was nice that it rained cause it was familiar (and thank goodness we found an umbrella) and people around were unphased - still looking that Parisian fabulousness! Here's just a few shots along the way...Read more

    June 6, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Der letzte Tag des Austausches - herzliche Verabschiedungen und auf nach Paris. Die Tagesbilanz: Fast alle touristischen Sehenswürdigkeiten wurden abgearbeitet -17,5 km abgelaufen. So fühlten sich auch meine Füße. Und dennoch - auch mit vielen Menschen und viel Verkehr - ist es eine schöne Stadt. Die Aussicht von den Galerie Lafayette und die Glaskuppel ist schon fast eine Reise wert.Read more

    Walking Streets Paris

    November 13, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Our hotel is right along the river and right in amongst the tourist walking streets. This is great for us...easy to make it back for diaper changes, quick to find something to eat, and so many areas to explore!

    Just downstairs from our hotel is an amazing gelato cafe! You choose a size, then can choose as many flavours as you want....and can even top it off with macaroons! When they scoop the ice cream, they scoop it into the shape of a flower!! It's amazing, gorgeous, and fantastically delicious!! I didn't realize how it worked until we ordered, so I didn't choose very colourful time I'll choose by colours instead of flavours! haha.

    After exploring more streets and bakeries, we decided to eat at a "kid-friendly" burger place, Frog Burger. They were very accomodating to the kids and they even had a high wasn't quite high enough (not very useful)....but one of the only places with a high I'll give them points for trying! haha. A few issues with our burger was raw....we were missing some fries....Morgan spilled her drink ALL was pretty much chaos....but the food was delicious and the server was fantastic! They gave Morgan a new drink for free, gave us free fries, and I'm sure were very happy when we left...haha!

    Eiffel Tower

    November 14, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    When we first left Disney and arrived at our rented apartment, we couldn't log into our Eiffel Tower tickets for some reason. No brother was staying at our house and had access to our computer, so I just had him forward them to me. I made sure we received them, but didn't look any further into it. That was 5 days ago. Our tickets are for today!! YAY!! Eiffel Tower, here we come!!.....or not. Yikes!! How did this happen? Our tickets were for last Friday??? We missed our reservation!! UGH!! We were so sure they were booked for Tuesday...well...that's $100 wasted!

    We decided to get up early and try to beat the line ups....since the online reservations were now completely sold out! Ready to wait in line for hours, we headed out! Our little people were just as excited about the trains as they were about the Eiffel Tower! Two trains, a 15 minute walk, and some chocolate waffles later, we were finally within sight of the famous, majestic, Eiffel Tower!! And there was next to no line!

    What an amazing structure. A giant elevator goes from the ground level, up to the second floor, where your toddler then has a 25 minute tantrum in the middle of the floor, kicking and screaming, meeting many other tourists (most trying to help) while legs and arms are flailing, tears are rolling, screams are piercing, all literally in the middle of the walkway. Oh...that's just us??!! haha....the second floor is actually where most people then transfer to a normal glass elevator that goes straight up the middle to the top! It was awesome! Both Morgan and Aston had a spot right up at the window and neither one of them had any fear....I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not...haha.
