Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

Tomorrow is an exciting day in the household of “La Famille Chic” as our elder daughter La Chic Maman is getting married 30 years to the day since Monsieur Le Chic and yours truly walked down the aisle… mais oui c’est vrai! Since we had our honeymoon in Paris, I thought a little piece on this wonderful city was the order of the day… Voila “La Belle Paris”!

Some places never change. People may come and go, new restaurants and cafes become the current flavour of the day, shops and boutiques open and close, buildings are constructed and renovated but essentially the soul of the place remains the same. Paris is one of those special places. I’ve been there many times since I first went as a 17 year old on an exchange programme when the highlight of my trip was a day visit to Versailles and Paris. My host family kindly made the long drive from Coutances in Normandy to fulfil my dream of seeing the French capital. Ever since then it has had a special place in my heart. I’ve been able to take my daughters there on a couple of trips too. No matter what else might be happening Paris has a magical quality that never dates.

    I am SO excited reading this! I leave for Paris tomorrow, to celebrate our Silver Wedding. I went as a giddy and pregnant 20 year old, for a couple of nights, but my husband has never been. Wish me ‘bon chance’ πŸ™‚
