    I love the old fashioned Palais de la Decouverte in the 8th. Kids love the exhibits (like the ant colony and the interactive setion to play in), and I love the old historic feel of this vintage museum. There are even dinosaurs and a planetarium (you have to make a reservation for the planetarium). It’s on ave Franklin D Roosevelt, in the 8th.

    There is a wonderful non-profit organisation for English speaking mums in Paris called MESSAGE. They have everyting from playgroup and event coordination to breastfeeding support groups. From their website: “Though the MESSAGE network has grown from 6 members in 1984 to over 1,500 members at present, the original objectives remain the same: to provide a support and contact group for English-speaking mothers and mothers-to-be, and more recently fathers, of all nationalities living in Paris, many of whom face the challenges of parenting far from their own families and friends.”


    Hats off to a fantastic organisation.

    A ride on the Canal St Martin is a great off the beaten track way to see the less touristy side of Paris. Children and adults alike love seeing all the different bridges, tunnels and locks.
