Paris.... Tue, September 4, 2007 - 7:34 AM1:40 AM
so we did it!
We managed to get us two kids and a multitude of MEC backpacks to Paris and survived the whole experience!
We had a great trip...3 days in Paris...and our test run for backpacking with our 2 boys for Italy next week. Its loads of work...cause my little one can only manage for so long with his pack....and certain places do get terrible crowded and scary for little people....like train and metro stations. But they were troupers...and walked liked crazy everywhere...and even climbed all the steps at the Eiffel tower!
Paris was its usual beautiful self and actually very empty, I guess all the Parisians were still on vacation. We stayed in the latin quater which is a great area to hang out in...very close to the Notre Dame...and loads of great cafe`s and restaurants!! We managed to climb the stairs of the Sacre Coeur in Montmantre....and waled for miles from the The Latin Quater to the Eiffel Tower.
The only major problem was my hubby got food poisoning....again. I keep telling him to stay away from the lamb...but he never listens to me.
