Paris in its proper order

It has been pointed out to me that the reverse chronological order of the blog is a bit limiting for those of you who might be trying to catch up on the trip after the fact. I did add the label Paris to all the posts that deal with the trip (you can click on that link at the bottom of each post to see only a list of the Paris entries) but these too appear in reverse order. After poking around and looking at some scary code on hacker sites I’ve decided that I can’t really change the order of my blog or the archive.

But what I can do is offer you a list of the links in the proper chroniclogical order (first to last) here. I’ve made each link so it opens in a new window; when you are finished reading the post, simply close the window and click the next one in this entry. I’ve also numbered them, which I hope will help you keep them in order more easily.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. Fantastic, Mara! You made me miss Paris. The last time we were there, it was with a six month old. And it was fabulous!

  2. where did you rent the apartment from in Paris?
    Thanks,
    Sara

  3. We used a great website called Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO.com). You can find properties all over the world there.

    Here is the listing for the apartment we rented: http://www.vrbo.com/116297

    The description and pictures are very accurate, although as I have noted, it is above a bar. But really it isn’t much of a problem – only when there’s a big soccer championship I suspect.

  4. Great info for families going to Paris! I stumbled it!

    We spent two weeks there early on in our open ended world tour and are ready for a trip back this summer. So much to see and do there!
