Much Ado about Paris Views

  Gather ’round kiddies, today we are going to talk about where to find the best view in Paris, and no, its not from the Eiffel Tower.     You might be thinking “but Mackenzie, the Eiffel Tower is crazy tall, how could the best view not be from all the way up there!? You…

Twirling Around the Jardin des Tuileries

  Ok, back to Paris!     One of my favorite things about Paris (and actually London when I was there too) are the public gardens. Don’t get me wrong, we have some pretty good parks in Seattle. In fact 93% of the population lives within walking distance of a park! As lovely as Seattle…
