my 15 year-old daughter, liesl, and i spent 5 days in paris. i’m going to post a 4-parter of my favorite pics from our trip. this last one, part 4, are just photos i liked…
when we walked to the rodin museum, we passed this post with stickers all over it, but didn’t know what they were. but we found out a few minutes later when liesl got a little sticker as a free student entrance (most paris museums allow people under 25 in for free – there’s your lengthening of adolescence right there). on the way out, i caught this pic of liesl adding her sticker to the collection.
this pic i took of sacre ceour is all bleached out with overexposure; but i really liked how it turned out.
we had a great break in the cafe at the musee d’orsay, which is right behind a massive clock facing the sienne river. i asked liesl to take my pic, including me and the clock, but not the guy’s head who was sitting next to me.
liesl’s favorite animals on earth are “lambies”. we found these as we were trudging around the grounds of versailles.
our little dumpy hotel room had a couple good things going for it: location, and a balcony overlooking a really quaint street. the day we arrived, liesl was fried; but i loved this pic of her chillaxing on the balcony.
my 15 year-old daughter, liesl, and i spent 5 days in paris. i’m going to post a 4-parter of my favorite pics from our trip. this one, part 2, are some of my favorite moments from the trip:
after trekking to sacre ceour, and wandering through the fun art community of montmartre, we stopped for crepes at a little cafe.
every morning, we walked a block to a great little bakery and bought yummy and cheap breakfast. liesl really dug the raspberry tort.
after trudging through the louvre, we crashed on the lawn outside (with hundreds of others). it was a beautiful day (better than the sky looks in this pic), and liesl started juggling bubble gum.
the gardens at the rodin museum were absolutely stunning. i loved this pic of liesl standing in front of a little fountain.
i had fond memories of having the best ice cream in the world with jeannie when we were in paris 13 years ago. liesl and i found the same place, on the backside of notre-dame, got double scoops, and sat by the sienne river enjoying the day. i had melon and white chocolate.
my 15 year-old daughter, liesl, and i spent 5 days in paris. i’m going to post a 4-parter of my favorite pics from our trip. this first one, part 1, are my favorite tourist moments:
me, in front of “the thinker” at the rodin museum. i’d not been to this museum before, and it was one of the best things to see in paris.
me and liesl at the top of the eiffel tower.
in front of notre-dame cathedral.
we loved eating in little cafes all around the city. i tried (and loved) new things i’d not had before. this is me about to try steak tartare (raw, minced steak – and yes, that’s a raw egg on top) at a great outdoor cafe on the champs elysee.
liesl enjoyed versailles more than anything on our trip, and this moment of her staring at the ceiling of “the hall of mirrors” was a good moment.
