The best part of getting to know the city is knowing now where to go so you know what to do, economically. This NYT piece as on how do a $1,000 day on $100 bucks. The best part of the city is undervalued: go for a walk. I did that with a friend last Sunday, and it was everything.
Yesterday ended up being a gorgeous May Sunday in Paris! This is the kind of day that we were imagining when we signed up for this adventure.
It didn’t start out that way, bucketing down rain in the early morning. But I managed to get in a 15km run, then the sun came out and we all walked to the library, then took a moment to “prends une verre” at a café on Avenue de la Bourdonnais.
I didn’t think about a blog post until looking out our bedroom window, so that’s where I snagged the photo.
This is my first post on the blog. It was always expect that kiddo and Mom would do most of the content, but I had always intended to write a few posts. I half-started about 5 posts on practical / logistical themes, but never finished them… Hopefully breaking the ice here will open the door for more. And better to break the ice with a (hopefully) inspiring post rather than start with nuts and bolts, hey?
