Versailles

When my friend, Stephanie, and I were in the planning stages of our first trip to Paris, I threw out the suggestion of a day trip to Versailles. I had visited Versailles years prior and was blown away by its over-the-top opulence. It's historical importance is awe inspiring. Every direction I looked I saw a... Continue Reading →

Eating Our Way Across Paris

Bonjour! I'm in the process of merging some content from my other blog, Fernweh Friday, with Marla on the Move. From time to time I'll be migrating some of my older posts here. I figured that a post about the food in Paris was a great place to start! So let's get started with a... Continue Reading →

l’Abbaye d’Ardenne Massacre

It's Remembrance Day here in Canada and I thought I'd share with you a story that I learned while visiting Normandy, France. Earlier this year marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It's been 75 years since the Allied forces landed in Normandy under Operation Overlord, taking part in the largest seaborne invasion in history, and... Continue Reading →

Maison Aurouze

I took part in a couple of walking tours with Localers when I was last in France. The first focused on the dark side of Paris' history. Our guide, Patrick, had a great sense of humour and after the tour concluded he led us to a rather grotesque sight before bidding us adieu. Yep, those... Continue Reading →

Croissants

My sister enrolled herself in a baking program shortly after graduating from high school. I remember questioning at the time if we shared the same genetics, as I'm hopeless where baking is concerned. I wish baking was my thing, but it's simply not. However, I'm actually really good at eating baked goods. So I guess... Continue Reading →

Jardin des Rosiers – Joseph-Migneret

Another trip to Paris means another delicious falafel lunch. I'm nothing if not predictable. As I always do, I headed for l'as du Fallafel and waited patiently in line for my order. My intention was to walk over to Place des Vosges and eat my lunch while people watching in the popular square. It was... Continue Reading →

Paris – #POTD, Part Deux

That moment you look into your carry-on bag and realise it's stuffed to the brim with bags (and bags) mini Toblerone. 😋 Its time to board the plane, and I've got a long travel day ahead of me. I hope you've enjoyed my daily photos. More in depth posts to follow, once I'm back in... Continue Reading →

Paris – #POTD

Bonjour ! After I finish my last breakfast in Paris, I need to finish packing before heading to the airport. Le sigh. <!--more--> Its been a fun week and, although I'm looking forward to going home, I know I'm going to miss Paris immensely. So until next time, Au revoir and bonne journée! Marla

Paris – #POTD

This morning I found myself in the area of Saint-Sulpice, which happens to be my favourite church in Paris. Of course I had to duck in for a visit. Usually when I enter a church, I take a seat in the back row of the pews to silently take everything in for a few minutes.... Continue Reading →
