French Fridays – More museums

DAY 5 – Thursday

French Fridays series. Exploring more museums... Picasso, Carnavalet, Cognacq Jay and Place des VosgesI had to go to as many museums as possible to get my money’s worth with the museum card.

I started to get more comfortable with the Metro system and changed a few trains to the Pompidou area. As I exited there were so many directions with things to see and decided to start with Picasso museum. I struggled a little bit to find the place (yes, with a map and compass! 🙂 ), but it was a beautiful walk there.

French Fridays – A quick trip in Montmarte

DAY 4 – Wednesday

Montmarte

Montmarte is a large hill in Paris, it is also the place where you can find the magnificent Sacre Couer.

Yesterday I went museum-hunting so, when my husband arrived we went to Montmarte. We talked about the movies Amélie and Moulin Rouge, as we went to see the Moulin Rouge as well. I enjoyed seeing the places in real life.

Amazing April

Another month flew by… April… it was a busy month, but it was amazing.

My husband took me for a movie and coffee without our 19 month old toddler. We bought him some animals before the time and this is how our coffee-date turned out:

French Fridays – Museum hunting

DAY 3 – Tuesday

I woke up during the night with a sore throat. I struggled to wake up and my day started a bit later than usual, but I decided to do some museum hunting.

Musée Rodin

I went to Musée Rodin. Although it is a small museum I was glad I took the time to visit it. The Thinker and Gates of Hell in the garden were magnificent.

French Fridays – Paris on foot

DAY 2 – Monday

Getting a Museum card

My husband left early for work, so that was my first day alone on the metro. Finding the station without any problem I took my seat and watched the other people. Most of them sat with a blank face, but there was a young couple talking excitedly.

My first stop was at the Arc de Triomphe for a museum card. Still a bit afraid of the metro I walked where I wanted to go.

The day I almost fell of a horse

Horse-riding

We went to the mountains and one of the many activities we did was horse-riding.

Although my parents sent us for some horse-riding lessons as children I believe all skills can be forgotten without regular practice. Every time I get on a horse I see myself as a beginner, trying to get as many tips from the guide as possible. On that specific day the only instructions I remembered were “hold on” and “put your feet in here”. Continue reading The day I almost fell of a horse

French Fridays – Arrival in Paris

DAY 1 – Sunday

The airplaneArrival in Paris. French Fridays

I don’t like flying. So it is safe to say even though I was very excited about our planned holiday I was very afraid of getting there. In retrospect there was nothing to complain about and I actually had a good night’s rest on the plane.

We landed on a Sunday morning and got a taxi to take us to the hotel. The hotel where we stayed is located just outside Paris. Continue reading French Fridays – Arrival in Paris

Finding rest

We recently went to the mountains for a week for a long-deserved rest. We went with family and one might ask how much rest did you anticipate with my 18 month old toddler and his 6 and 9 year old cousins.

The chalets had different views, ours overlooked a mountain and the rest over the valley and mountains in the far distance.

Communication mishaps

Communication mishapsCommunication plays a very important role in our everyday life.

In one of the Friends-episodes there is the incident where 2 of the friends have the misunderstanding when one asked “got the keys?”, but the message was understood as “got the keys”; and they were locked outside the apartment, both thinking the other one got the keys.
