kindly shared

I have ordered a moleskine city notebook to keep safe all the best things we find in Paris. I have one for NYC and its busting at the seams with addresses, street names, business cards and all our favorite things about New York.

Thank you so much for all your tips and advice, with your help I am already half way to filling this new volume of my travels. I can't wait for it to arrive so that I can mark the streets and places you have so kindly shared with me.

On the home front, just waiting to buy paint for the lounge now. I think I will tackle the decorating this weekend. But don't take my word for it. If the sun ventures back out from behind those clouds I will be outdoors and saving my rollers and brushes for the next rainy day!

Hope to be back with something prettier for you to look at soon.

Oh I love Moleskines, love love love!

And, haha, I also LOVE paris. (So much love in my heart, eh) Ive been there about 8 times, and travelled in France a lot. My favourites in Paris include some of the cliches - jardin de luxembourg, tuiliers, montmartre - but i also love the atmosphere in La Défense, the business side of the city (:

And, if you're in for shopping, don't miss Le village outlet, it's just outside paris, a few RER stops before disneyland. HEAVEN.

Have a great time. Oh well, I guess i dont even have to say it. i mean, it's paris!

I bought that exact same book for my trip to Paris! I filled it up with lovely recordings. I wrote every nightbabout what we did during the day. Looking back on it is so wonderful and nostalgic!

after reading everyone else's tips for paris you might need a month there to cover all the suggestions made....i think someone has suggested the flea markets, and i think you would adore the vintage market at porte de clignancourt, which is vast but amazing and you can pick up some lovely things without having to spend a lot....for gorgeous cakes, hot chocolate and shabby chic glamour take a trip to angelina's tea rooms on the rue de rivoli, and then pop over to tuilerie gardens to see the beautiful vintage carousels, you can then walk up to the louvre....anyway, just a couple more suggestions in the pot,but whatever you decide have a wonderful time xx

What a great idea, to use a City Moleskine for every city you visit.

I use my Moleskine for everything, my home country, as well as other places. But now I'm going to try your idea :)
