The Winding Streets Of Paris, Le Sigh

Have you ever felt as if you have walked onto a movie set?  This was the overwhelming feeling I had as I strolled the winding streets of Paris, holding hands with the love of my life, immersed in the sites and sounds of this glorious city.


Around each corner, a new surprise, more beauty. P1000150P1000156

Hours were lost wandering with a map in one hand, a cappuccino in the other.  Window shopping had never been so intoxicating.    ParisWalk4

Paris casts a spell on you.  The architecture, cobblestone streets, art galleries, monuments, gardens, cafe’s and the food!   So much to see, never enough time.  P1000128


We tried to act like locals, laughed at ourselves.  Practised  our terrible French and loved every second of it.

This trip was almost three years ago!  So why the throw back to the epic trip to Paris?  (besides my obvious obsession with the city?) We have begun to make our travel plans  for 2015, and as all planners do, we are dreaming big!  Europe is back on the top of the list!  This summer my “babies” will be 16 and 13 years old! Yikes!  So I need to know, what’s on your Family Travel Bucket List?  Do you want to show the world to your family?  If you were dreaming big, where would you go?  After all, it never hurts to dream!
