TRAVEL PARIS | Starting the new year in the city of lights

Le Sacré-Coeur seen from the top floor of Galeries Lafayette

Paris is always a good idea 🎶

We visited the city of lights again right after Christmas and spent New Year's Eve there. Just a few days away from our daily routine and our quiet country side life.
As you can probably tell from the photos, the weather was awful! It didn't matter so much though because we had planned to visit museums rather than explore each and every corner of the town.

We went to the Picasso museum, the Museum of Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac and the Galerie de l'Evolution. We unfortunately missed the Dior exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs, there was too many people (a 5-hour queue!) and I had not booked the tickets prior to going... dommage!

We also paid our yearly visit to the kitchen shop E.Dehillerin near Les Halles, discovered Chez Victor near station Pernety and the pâtisserie Karamel at Les Invalides. 

Overall a nice 4-day family trip with two children who ♡ going to Paris!

Not a good day to go up the Eiffel tower...
