5TH ARRONDISSEMENT
Jardin des Plantes
May 1, 2016
Paris can get pretty wet and cold in the winter and sometimes it is nice to be able to seek refuge inside. One of our favourite city adventures in the winter time is a visit to the Jardin des Plantes. It is one of Paris' largest parks (which does not mean a lot ;)) and also ...

Chateau Vaux le Vicomte
April 15, 2015
This weekend, there were a lot more smiles in Paris than usual - spring has finally arrived! The trees are starting to look just a little bit greener and the thermometer is slowly reaching 21 degrees - the magic number when it is possibly to sit outside in a T-shirt. The terraces of all the ...

Context Travel - Tours around Paris
September 18, 2014
This weekend we went for a little adventure around Paris -- the sun was out and it was the perfect day to discover Montmartre. It is ironic how, when you live in a city, you sometimes know less about it than all the tourists who visit! We were delighted when Context Travel invited us for a ...

A day trip from Paris - Versailles
July 29, 2014
Living in this lovely city of Paris is great... but it is easy to forget all the great things to do and visit just outside the city. A couple of weekends ago we jumped with some friends on a commuter train (the RER B) and within 40 minutes we had arrived in front of the stunning chateau ...

We have just come back from a fun weekend together in Paris! We went for Playtime Paris, but also managed to squeeze in some meetings, visit some museums, walk from one end of Paris to the other, and laugh so hard our bellies are still sore. We'll be sharing our re-cap of Playtime soon, but ...

Family life in Paris
January 7, 2014
I often am asked what it is like to bring children up in Paris and what I like and don't like about it, so I thought it could be fun to write down some of my experiences! These are just random things that I have personally observed.. Playgrounds and Parks: There are not many and ...

Exciting new spaces in Paris
October 10, 2013
For once I am giving the urban planners of Paris a cautious thumbs up: this summer not one, but two new public, urban spaces opened! And, to boot, they are great for the whole family. On the right bank, after being a massive building site for a long while, the new Place de La Republique ...

Weekend Away: Paris
May 7, 2012
We have had so many great contributors tell us about their cities, and each of them has made me want to pack my bag and go explore the city, so I wanted to do a post about Paris. I still sometimes step out of my flat and get a little bit excited. Why? Because I ...

Things to do with BOYS in Paris
June 27, 2010
I have been discovering lots of BOY friendly activities here in Paris -- a far cry away from the usual shopping and coffee-drinking that you normally associate with this city. I reckon our Babyccino Boys Theme week is the perfect opportunity to share them with you... The Argonaute at the Parc de la Villette: The ...

The Argonaute
May 13, 2010
A girlfriend of mine came to visit us in Paris with her 2 boys who were 8 and 10. I was at a complete loss on how to entertain them. Playing with my girls entertained them mildly,  but when their mother and I suggested hitting the shops we had a bit of a mutiny on ...

Marché des Enfants Rouge

Courtney and her family were over in Paris visiting from London and we wandered around the North Marais, doing a bit of shopping, people watching and coffee drinking. It really reminded me about how much I love this little area. I want to write a thousand and one posts on all the lovely little places ...

After being completely refurbished, the Forum des Images finally reopened its doors a couple of months ago. Founded about 20 years ago, the Forum is Paris' premier film library and cultural cinema venue. The new Forum is fantastic, and a stark contrast to the ugly Forum des Halles shopping centre that houses it. (The Forum ...
