The reason why we were perusing one of our favorite books this weekend, sadly enough was a very sad one…
The news of the Paris attacks left the kids a bit confused. They vowed they would never travel to Paris again, because it was not considered a safe city. We tried to explain what happened and why we definitely would visit this beautiful and bright city again!
This is Paris by Miroslav Sasek is the first travel book in the famous This is series. First published in 1959, it is a delightful tour of Paris in the fifties. Very vintage, but definitely not outdated!
We already visited some of the world-famous monuments pictured in the book with the kids, but still have to add a few to the list. Next up are Amélie Poulain’s Montmartre and Le Louvre.
