It was suggested that when traveling with kids, a good idea might be to give them full reign for a day (or two or three). We decided while we were in Paris, this would be a great place to do it. There is so much to see and why not change up what we normally would have put on the agenda and let the kids be in charge for a change. Good for them to have the responsibility to figure out what interests them about the city, where to find it on a map and to plan out the day.
First up was our youngest daughter and her day went a little like this:
1. Musee Rodin
2. Walk down the Champs Eysees and Avenue Montaigne for some window shopping. Or as they say in France, “faire du leche-vitrines” which literally translated means window licking, although we only drooled a little…
3. Stopped for a sweet crepe.
4. The Eiffel Tower at dusk!
Next, it was my oldest daughter’s turn to be princess for the day. She chose another amazing adventure and it went something like this:
1. Jardin du Luxembourg
2. A special French lunch
3. A visit to the English bookstore Shakespeare & Co. (it was just across from Notre Dame so we stopped in there also).
4. The Sorbonne
I cannot wait to see where they pick to go next!
