Adventures of A Red Vespa in Rome

8

A tour through Rome on a beautiful shiny red vespa who could refuse right? I heard about ScooterRoma tours through instagram so I decided to book a tour for the best way to see the city. My Roman Holiday adventure started while Annie arrived via scooter to my airbnb apartment. I immediately told her I was terrified of riding on a vespa and did not tell my family of my adventure until after! She strapped me into a helmet and showed me how to hop on the vespa and hold on tight… off we went! Immediately at the light two handsome men waved as Annie spoke to them in Italian. Does it get any better? Oh wait it does.

Rodin Museum Gardens

0

The past few visits in Paris the gardens in the Rodin Museum have been under construction. Parts have been open but it hasn’t been free of construction for a while. This past visit I was thrilled to be able to walk around the gardens and enjoy the greenery and warm weather. If you get a chance to visit the inside admission is 5 euros I believe but its only 1 euro to visit the gardens. I would add it to your list!

Overnight Fall

8

We had the most beautiful warm October here in Paris. I have heard rumors it was the warmest on record for a long while. It was an extended Indian Summer. Just last week I took photos on the Seine and it was dress weather! Overnight the weather turned chilly this week as the calendar changed to November. It tends to do that. I explored a new little area of Montmartre yesterday before the rain and cold came in. I just adore this little street.

Watching the Seasons Change in Palais Royal

5

Palais Royal is tucked behind the Louvre and the Tulleries. I used to dismiss it on the map and never made a point to visit. Now, its one of my favorite places in Paris to people watch. This month I was able to watch the seasons change as I walked through the garden. I will treasure these moments and thank goodness for me the pictures will bring me great memories for years to come.

Towards the end of the month they clipped the trees and the leaves were gone.

Sunset Show

Last night I took a stroll through the tulleries with friends in Paris. The Paris sky put on a perfect show for all of us with the eiffel tower as the star. Don’t you agree?

A taste of Champagne

2

Yesterday on a very cold October day I ventured with friends to the Champagne region. We packed into the car with two kids. Yes! We took two small kids to Champagne and I have never seen two kids behave better. I kept begging the Dad for his secret. Two hours each way the kids played and we practiced French. A huge thank you to Nico for driving around Champagne as he literally stopped with a moments notice for me to jump out and photograph.

We arrived home super late last night so here is just a taste of Champagne with more to follow later!

Picasso Museum Paris Opening

0

Yesterday in Paris the Picasso museum finally reopened after 5 long years. It was also Picasso’s birthday which the perfect day to reopen the museum. I hadn’t planned to go yesterday as I assumed there would be huge crowds and long lines. While walking through the Marais I pretty much stumbled upon the museum. Yes there were crowds but the lady at the front told me the wait would be 90 minutes. I waited longer for the Cartier exhibit in February in the freezing rain. This didn’t seem so bad. Plus it was opening day and if people in the states can wait days for the new iPhone than this wait wasn’t so bad. It ended up being about an hour total and everything went smoothly and the space was well gorgeous. Here are a few shots I got but keep in mind it was terribly busy!
