During the fall school holidays we took our little kids to Paris for a four day “introduction” to this amazing city. Now, I know that going to Paris for a “quick” trip might sound exotic and privileged to most people (especially those of you living in the US), but having these types of adventures is precisely why we made the move last year to my husband’s native Switzerland. I feel so fortunate and grateful to be here at this time and sharing experiences like this with my little kids and husband (and occasionally my older daughter, too 🙂 ). All in all, our airfare was less than $100 each and we stayed in a friend’s apartment. We ate affordably and used public transportation and our own feet to get around. We were literally on our feet from morning until night. In four days we packed in visits to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Versailles, the Arc du Triomphe, Place Concorde, Luxembourg Gardens and Notre Dame. Whew! I feel tired just writing that list 🙂
I am still tweaking my website, but I have been anxious to get started blogging and sharing, so here we go. Over time I will be polishing this site and adding features (including a store), so come back again! I welcome your comments and questions and I’m so happy you are here.
