Paris 2012 [part 2]

I realise that a few weeks have passed since the first post about our latest trip to Paris but Christmas came, school started again, the children got sick and other stuff had to be put on the back burner.

Every holiday has its own highlights and, for me, these were the most memorable moments from this trip:

Christmas at Galeries Lafayette is always spectacular. Of course, I had to Instagram the gigantic Christmas tree.

One thing we always look forward to is the windows at Galeries Lafayette. This year’s were a little less whimsical than usual but still very entertaining. I loved those raccoons!

Climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower with both kids. This 'Sommet' sign has seen us as a dating couple, as newly engaged, newly married, with one child and with two children.

The tiny but cozy flat we rented through Air BNB. If you are travelling with more than one child, I'd highly recommend this site as opposed to a hotel.

The parks and countless carousels, especially this hand-operated one.
