Paris with the kids - a trip report

Jump to last reply

Well, some of you may think this is a stretch, since the "baby" is now 21 - but your kids are always your kids, n'est-ce pas?

Both daughters have been once before on different occasions, but son and son-in-law were making their first visit, and it was my great good fortune to be able to guide them around for a week in the world’s best city. Most of our time was spent in town, but we did take two days out for some day trips, to show them that Paris is not France any more than any large American city is the US. We spent one day doing something specifically not recommended by Fodorites - namely, seeing both some of the Normandy beaches as well as Mont St. Michel in the same day. You'll have to judge for yourself if this The Longest Day is something you would try. We were glad we did!

If you've seen any of my earlier phototravelogues, you know I believe that a picture is not worth a thousand words, but rather that a picture should come with a thousand words! (Well, maybe a few less ...) The research I do afterwards lets me take the trip all over again in a way, and is always a great pleasure for me to do.

So, for the main album, go to:

As a bonus, my YouTube-capable son has done two videos, one a collection of 30 second clips taken around the city, and the other specific to the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. These can be found at:
