Mais oui – Isabelle & Della are in Paris!


Della my daughter turned 8 two weeks ago and she always dreamed about going to Paris and me always keen on some travel saw the opportunity and went straight to book a trip. I also believe 8 is a good number for doing a trip like this. We’re having so much fun!


It ‘s so nice having time, just the two of us. And I’m trying a strict no mobile rule. Damn those phones – they really want to get into our lives. The good thing though is less mobile = loads more photos with my good camera!


Street art pretty much everywhere. Think I need to start doing it in Stockholm – there are not enough back home! Gives a town character.


And also great doors, fences and balcony railings. Diversity is always a great key for succes.


This station was a bit as the Swedish kids tv show Labyrint!


But of course we had to do this. But Mona Lisa has to wait.


Pont des artes with all the love locks was cool. Not cool that the bridge is collapsing but such a strong love force!


Yes, there was also dogs in bags.


And the mighty tower of Eiffel. Up up up we went. A good idea is to buy the more expensive but very smart and handy skip the line tour tickets – for easy direct access and no lines to wait. My girl would have driven me mad waiting for a couple of hours to get up there.


At the top we almost fell off by the wind. Luckily there was fences everywhere. Still felt obsessions like I had when the kids where babies. That even though I was far from a window that I would somehow slip and the baby would fly in the air and 2 meters further –  out the window. Or when I stood in the kitchen cooking I obsessed about tripping with a huge knife in my hand and this knife would fly – high in the air and somehow end up in the baby…
It’s pretty common – having baby obsessions like this – right? Feeling a bit weird actually writing this…


Get out of here!! – That construction is wicked!


Guess it was “Cool girls on top of the Eiffel tower ‘ day today.


We took the elevator up and used our legs on the way down. Not as good for your bum but great for tired citytripping feet.


Bonjour mademoiselle


At first I didn’t notice I was walking on glass. Then I almost fainted. Not that afraid of heights but that glass thing got to me. Della started to jump up n’ down screaming -Look mom it’s super safe!! I promise.
Well, I’m not buying it.


This image reminds me of Robin Williams in Hook when he flies on his back <3

Work it Della!


Robocops IRL.


Had to get a jump in there as well!

ooooooo I love this post. Great pictures of Della and Paris.

I also had those thoughts when Viola was a baby. With knifes and falling down the stairs as I was holding her.

Vilka sköna bilder. Ja dom där telefonerna alltså, jag beställde en klassisk väckarklocka häromdan för att komma ifrån ursäkten att jag måste ha telefonen där som väckarklocka. Så roligt att resa med barn förresten, vi var i Berlin nu i sommar med våra twins som är 3,5 år och det blir verkligen en helt annan resa men än väldigt rolig sådan! Ser fram emot att ta med dom till Paris nån gång.

Ååååååååh vilka underbara bilder!! Lägg upp fler! Min man och jag var i Paris utan kids för bara ett par veckor sedan men jag har länge varit besatt av att åka med vår stora unge som precis börjat i förskoleklass.
