For the last few weeks I have been dreaming of my summer off, this year has been a pretty hard one for me, so looking forward to the summer is something that I have always done. As I was cleaning away boxes in my room I came across a bunch of scattered photos when I looked through them they were of my school trip to Paris in late 2000, this was my first ever trip abroad. So Paris has always had a fascination and fond memories to me. So the other day on a whim i decided to text lyzi “Can we go to paris in the summer?” and much to my surprise she was planning on going to visit a friend anyway…So here is to planning our trip to Paris. I look forward to finding little flea markets, strolling along the seine and finding that really lovely pizzeria off a little court yard that i have very fond memories of going to when i was 12, I ordered a pizza bigger then me.
I haven’t been on holiday to another country since January 2005 so I am making this summer special, me and lyzi will don our white summer dresses and mingle amongst the beautiful Parisian women. I look forward to spending time with lyzi, we recently met when we took an adventure to London’s natural history museum, I love the fact the by being a blogger has allowed me to meet lovely creative people like Lyzi
The title of this little post is inspired by a lovely poem by James Fenton, that some of my students had to learn for G.c.s.e last month and since then I haven’t been able to take my mind of traveling and exploring. Have you ever been to paris? is there something or somewhere we should explore on our travels?
