It’s been almost a month since we have been to France and I can honestly say I want to go back!! I LOVED Paris and in a different life could see myself living there. We joke that my Asian-Adopted-Dutch-Self was a European in another lifetime. I just love the European culture and history! The US is practically a baby compared to Europe! I also realized I just miss being in a city. I lived in Chicago for 5 years and miss it a lot.
I figured I’d break up these posts up so I don’t overload you with photos.
I feel that if you lived in a city sometime in your life where you used public transportation regularly it’s fairly easy to pick things up at any city. The metro was pretty easy to use, BUT there’s a huge caveat… it was not easy to use with a stroller, NOT EASY. But we were out and about all day so there was no getting around it. This stroller is where our kids could rest, take naps, etc. Though we ate our way in carbs delight we shed those pounds by lifting that stroller up stairs all day, everyday. By the end of the trip we easily wanted to throw that stroller out of the window of some moving vehicle, but we didn’t because I’m too practical and didn’t want to toss a couple hundred dollars away.
Best quote of the day, “look dad that monkey is tickling that guy” Here we are at Museum of Natural History of Paris. I fell in love with the historic building of this museum! I want those exact wood floors in our new house.
When we travel we usually assume the first day is a wash since we are trying to figure things out and get the lay of the land. But surprisingly we jam packed a ton of stuff and had a really great day!
