This one's a golden oldie, and I love postcards like these that show lots of different sights in a city! It's just a reminder of how many amazing things there are to see and do in Paris!

Postcards from…Paris

The postcard collection is growing! These postcards came to me courtesy of my parents, who just enjoyed their first visit to Paris and their first experience on the Eurostar. In fact, I'm not sure if they enjoyed the Eurostar more than the long weekend in Paris, and if they could have, I'm sure they would… Continue reading Postcards from…Paris

Travel gifts from Paris!

I love bringing back goodies from my travels to share with people. And the next best thing when I can't go exploring is when other people bring back goodies for me! My parents have just returned from a long weekend in Paris to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday. It was a surprise for him, right… Continue reading Travel gifts from Paris!

Postcard from…Mona Lisa

A world famous painting, in a world famous museum...how could I not get a postcard to remember it? I was lucky enough to find my way to the Mona Lisa when I visited the Louvre in Paris. For anyone who has been to the Louvre, they'll understand what I mean by that - the place… Continue reading Postcard from…Mona Lisa

Photo Friday: Notre Dame Ceiling

Notre Dame is a stunning cathedral in the centre of Paris. One of my favourite things to do in churches is look up, and I was definitely not disappointed in Notre Dame! If you look to the right of the above photo, you can see that in the cross section of the arch is a… Continue reading Photo Friday: Notre Dame Ceiling

Postcard from…Eiffel Tower

This has to be one of my favourite postcards, especially from Paris. I love the Eiffel Tower, and the architecture of the landmark. I must have taken about a million photos of the Eiffel Tower (me and every other tourist in Paris!), and even tried taking a few black and white photos to get an… Continue reading Postcard from…Eiffel Tower

Photo Friday: The Thinker

One of Rodin's most famous pieces, I knew of the sculpture without knowing the name of it or the artist who created it. It wasn't until we visited Musée Rodin in Paris that I spotted the sculpture (not hard, it's big!) and I put two and two together. Many of the pieces available to view… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Thinker

Montparnasse Tower, Paris

From a distance, Montparnasse Tower looks just like an ordinary office block. But the real gem lies at the top of the building, where you’ll find a large, open-air viewing platform. The obvious choice for panoramic views of Paris is the Eiffel Tower. However, we were staying just a couple of minutes walk from Montparnasse… Continue reading Montparnasse Tower, Paris

Postcard from…Paris

There's so much to see and do in Paris that it just wasn't possible to find a postcard that covered everything we'd done, so I settled for this one and grabbing postcards from everything we visited that I loved too! As much as I love postcards, I just feel that this one doesn't do each individual… Continue reading Postcard from…Paris

The Eiffel Tower, Paris

Originally built as the entrance to the 1889 World Fair, the Eiffel Tower has since become one of the most recognisable buildings in the world. Instead of being dismantled at the end of the fair, it remained because it was so useful as a radio broadcasting tower, and the people of Paris just loved it!… Continue reading The Eiffel Tower, Paris
