funny-----and true - all around.


I was there last summer with my 2 & 5 year old, sans husband, to visit my dad. We had a lovely time & saw every park and playground in Paris. In addition to some of the things mentioned above, we loved the Jardin d'acclimatation, we went to the Children's Museum part of the Science Museum twice, we picnicked and caught tadpoles in the streams of the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, and we loved checking out all the playgrounds, pony rides and puppet shows at the Jardin Ranelagh. I used Fodor's guide Around Paris with kids and the Paris City Walks with Kids extensively.


Perfect..I'm forwarding this to my sister in Victoria, BC, who plans to visit Paris soon with a 9 year old and a 7 year old. Better her than me!

Paris is on the top of my dream destination. Who wouldn't feel the life if you're on the most romantic place in the world? This blog is simply amazing because all are about Paris. I'm gonna keep this for future reference.

To the person that wrote that Paris is on the top of their dream destinations?.....You MUST go one one of Richard's walking tours and I suggest you do so the first or second day -- it will make your entire trip so much more enjoyable and make you more aware to look for all the details and incredible beauty all around you that is Paris. Yes, it is incredibly romatic, with our without a romatic prospect!

Hey, Richard!
LOVED the series on musee Orsay -- we visited Orsay on our second day in Paris, and it was AFTER that that I learned I needed to look UP and DOWN and all around to take in all the beauty there is to see. Having you highlight the details was terrific, because I must say, I think I missed it! I was too intent on the paintings and sculptures and missed the amazing architecture and didn't really notice the sculptures outside! That and I am photographically-challenged and had a new digital camera that I was still trying to figure out.

You have a fabulous 'eye' for detail and beauty and thank you for sharing your always unique and special point of view.

LHK & P! (love hugs kisses & PARIS)
my very best to you,

The best part is the description! You have to love that.My kid has always been fascinated with astrology. He's too young to understand things about NASA but I'm glad to find this so I could somehow explain to him a bit even though I do not completely understand it all.
