Friday Fun: Paris As an Inspiration

Back from our Paris trip and wading through 650+ emails… so I may be a little behind with reading and commenting on your blogs… Here are some highlights from our trip – some iconic sights, and some lesser-known ones.

The obligatory pilgrimage to Shakespeare & Co. bookshop. Although, as my older son said: 'What's the point of bringing us here if we don't buy any books?'

  1. Such gorgeous ‘photos, Marina Sofia! It looks as though you had lovely weather for your trip, which is great. And who could resist Shakespeare & Co., whether or not you buy…

    1. It would have been such fun to meet – although a bit of a logistical challenge with family in tow… The children did love Paris though, even if we barely scratched the surface and couldn’t go all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower because of high winds.
      Did you stock up on all the books you wanted?

  2. oh nice… looks like you had a great time… i wanna go back to paris… such a magical city.. and when i go there i need to make some time for sketching…
