Paris in the spring. Sometimes it is dazzling, mostly it is cold, grey and drizzling. Still, it's Paris!
Thoughts about Paris with kids: The toyshops are amazing, everywhere you find little playgrounds, beautiful parks, carousels and crepes (Nutella crepes mmmm). We wandered a lot, queued very little (sorry, no trip up the Eiffel Tower, and we mistimed the Louvre - it's closed Tuesdays and May Day), I got to wear my red beret in Paris, the children ate chocolate with everything.
