Mr Robot and I are in Paris and it is wonderful. We first came about 15 years ago when we didn't have two pennies to rub together and said we'd like to come back when we could spend a bit more. Though actually, all we've spent on so far is a six-day museum pass (worth getting if you're non-EU citizen or over 26 as it gets you in loads of places and you can bypass a lot of the queues too) and food and drink.
I nearly wrote 'foof and drink' there. It's not that sort of trip!
Here's our hotel room. We're staying in a little 12-room place in the Marais, the converted Presbytery of the St Merri church, just round the back of the Pompidou centre. When we stayed here all those years ago it was very cheap. It isn't cheap any more, but it is lovely.
We've been to a few museums already, eaten lots of great food and have seen some lovely places. It's exhausting! I swear we'll need a holiday to recover from this holiday...
(Gisela, you were right about the weather and how warm it would be.)

Last year, with vouchers to spend and no idea what to spend them on, I bought a pair of penny loafers. FOOTWEAR REVELATION! I've always veered between clumpy boots and ladylike-but-bland shoes. (I think a really distinctive pair of shoes would send the matchy-matchy part of me into panic trying to find things that would look right with them.) My penny loafers were still great for tramping around in, but rather less casual looking. I wore them so much, I wore them out.
