Paris is always a good idea

Ernest Hemingway - If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.

Henry Miller - When spring comes to Paris the humblest mortal alive must feel that he dwells in paradise.

Audrey Hepburn - Paris is always a good idea.

It does not disappoint.

We have been fortunate enough to travel to Paris as a family many times. The publisher of David’s books in French invite David to the Paris book fair, Salon du livre, every March.

What started in 2006 as what we imagined to be a one time experience turned into 9 years in a row. I still pinch myself.

Our youngest daughter was only 9 years old on our first trip. Every spring break, she got to go to Paris. Travel is so wonderful for children.

Hamming it up for David, trying to look like Parisians.

I love seeing the changes in Victoria, over the years. These are two of my favourite pics of her holding hands with David, something she was getting too old to do at home. This is circa 2011. It just warms my heart.

I love the streets leading up to the Pantheon. Our favourite little restaurant is up there. Never miss it!
