Paris

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

I’ve loved Paris for many years, as mentioned on my About page, and since 1998 have had my own small apartment there, between the Eiffel Tower and Musée Marmottan.

In a post about Paris and Sydney, I describe 15 Things I Love about each city. That post was also picked up by The Paris Blog. My Sydney Paris Life has also been featured on about.com Paris Travel.

In this category, I often write about my longing to spend more time in Paris and the joy I feel when we’re there.

Of course Paris, like Sydney, offers infinite possibilities for walking and exploration. I share my experience of well-known tourist destinations – climbing the hills of Montmartre to Sacre Coeur;  seeing a bride at the Eiffel Tower; or visiting Shakespeare & Company bookshop.

I also write about less well-known aspects of Paris: excellent exhibits at Hotel de Ville, strange cemetery tombstones in Montparnasse, beauty and remembrance at Museé Nissim de Camondo, walking in Parc des Buttes Chaumont, or exploring the Canal St.-Martin and the Viaduct des Arts and Promenade Plantée.

My Paris posts also include my thoughts and experiences as a part-time Paris resident, from getting reliable Internet (finally!) in the apartment to shopping at wonderful BHV to meeting other bloggers  for a fun get-together in the Buttes aux Cailles quartier.
