Like many of my fellow travel bloggers I love Instagram.
I enjoy keeping up with other people’s travels there.

Last weekend I spent a wonderful few days exploring Paris and,
to give you a little taster of things to come,
here’s my weekend in Paris as it appeared in Instagram.

Avenue Story, Paris

We loved our apartment on rue Cler which we rented through Avenue Story.


Grimbergen beer, Paris

I’m not much of a beer drinker at but I do like the odd pint!
This was possibly the nicest beer I’ve ever tasted…. Grimbergen, an abbey beer from Belgium.

07 chocolate hen

It was the weekend before Easter and there were chocolate animals everywhere.

08 baby boutique

A designer label shop for babies!

Formagerie on Rue Cler, Paris

What a great combo – wine and cheese on rue Cler, just a two minute walk from our apartment.
The staff in the wine shop in particular were extremely helpful and friendly.

10 Lamb chops

Our first evening meal was at Café du Marché, again on rue Cler.
Great meal and friendly service, always with a smile (despite being rushed off their feet).

11 Pear tart

 This pear tart with chocolate sauce was superb!

12 Le Petit Cler

Le Petit Cler, one of the other wonderful restaurants on rue Cler.

13 Le Patisserie Stohrer

Thanks to Habiybah, from Avenue Story, for an excellent (complimentary) tour of the food shops on rue Montorgueil.

I’m looking forward to sharing more photographs and telling you all about this!

I was glad we found time to pop in inside Notre Dame which I’d missed on previous visits.

Travel Planning Resources

Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries.
