#travelwithkids – Paris

Hello and welcome to #travelwithkids, a brand new linky brought to you by the lovely Ickle Pickle and myself.  This linky is for anyone who enjoys family-friendly travelling from days out to road trips to city breaks.  We are very excited to find out about new places to visit all over the UK and beyond and aim to create a rich archive full of interesting finds.  To join in, simply link up a post using the Inlinkz tool at the foot of this post; it doesn’t have to be a new post, it just has to fit the #travelwithkids theme.  It would be lovely if you used our #travelwithkids badge, which can be found below, but this is not essential.  The linky will go live every Wednesday at midnight and run until 8pm on Sundays.  We will leave comments on all posts as well as sharing on Twitter. Enjoy!

This week, I am taking you on a cheeky trip to Paris, at the request of the boy.  I have been to Paris three times now – once with James, when the boy was our secret bump, once with Miss J and my best friend, and once with James and both children.  The latter was my favourite.  We must have spoken about Paris a great deal before we left because Miss J was very excited to see things like the Pompidou Centre and, of course, the Eiffel Tower.


Both children were very impressed by the view from the top of the tower, and not at all frightened.  The first time I went, I hadn’t been frightened either, but there was something about seeing my babies that far off the ground that freaked me out!


Pont des Arts was another attraction that caught Miss J’s attention:


She also loved the Pompidou, having wanted to visit for ages.


There is so much to do in Paris, particularly with little ones, and it definitely has more to offer than just DisneyLand!  There are parks on every corner, plenty of carousels, and even a chocolate museum!



Oh, and the cakes.  I can’t write about Paris and not mention the cakes!


We love Paris.  It’s more like London than Amsterdam.  Dirtier, busier, crazier than Amsterdam.  But with a lot of space and a million things to do.  Have you been?  Would you take your children?


Smiles and Trials

    How amazing that you visit Paris with your little ones – who are adorable by the way! I visited in March 2012 and didn’t see it as a child-friendly place, it was so busy for me, but after seeing just how much your little ones loved it and all they saw I think it’d be lovely for me to visit with my boy one day 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the linky, glad to be linking up for the first time.
