What the internet can do!

I am back from beautiful Paris. Everything was just perfect (I only wish I didn't have to work, so I could have more time for sightseeing).

Highlight of Paris was meeting a friend of mine that I met through blogging.
(this is what I wrote after our first meeting in the winter: )

I loved having lunch with her and an afternoon walk through the city on the first day. And I loved the evening spent with her family on my last day. It was awesome to be able to speak French with the little girl. I understand a lot of French, but I can not speak - only the basic. The little girl is so clever - she understood my French completely!

When saying goodbye to Kaymet she said: "What the internet can do!".
Yes, indeed!


  1. Oh, you lucky lucky thing! "What the internet can do" indeed. How fabulous. I love walking in Paris - the neighbourhood photos you took as well as the big sights. And the Pompidou Gallery. Thank you for this.

    Also, it's so much fun speaking another language to children. They're so open to us, but occasionally know words we don't. I remeber when a little Thai girl asked me why I was tall like a giraffe. Of course, I didn't know the word for giraffe!

  2. I am very happy to hear that you had a good trip and met wonderful people. I love what the internet can do, too :-)

  3. I remember seeing a T-shirt once that said "Paris is always a good idea." ;) Glad you had a great trip!
