a family wedding!
Kia Ora! Greetings from the land of the long white cloud where I am currently in New Zealand for my little brother’s wedding! My husband Rob and I arrived on Friday into Queenstown and made our way down to Invercargill by rental car. The flight was uneventful and I was able to catch up [...]
but still smiling!
Bonjour! This day had to come I guess! I had prepared myself for it but still… if only I didn’t have to leave my beloved Paris! An organised morning! Donc… on my last blog I posted that I still hadn’t packed so this was going to be one of my priorities for the [...]
vous voir au printemps!
Bonjour! Donc… ce soir ma dernière nuit à Paris! While I am excited to see my boys and my babies again, I am a little sad to be leaving behind my beloved Paris and all my wonderful friends. It’s a dilemma I can’t seem to reconcile myself to and each time I struggle with it [...]
and a random Panda!
Bonjour! I can’t quite believe I have only 3 days left in Paris! Where did those 4.5 weeks go! A Post Office visit! I had a very quiet day yesterday all to myself which was nice as I think I was craving some ‘Murielle-alone’ time! In the morning I finalised packing my 7 kilos [...]
on Rue Monge!
Bonjour! I think the Paris Snow Gods heard my prayers because it snowed again last night! I was at Mustapha’s bar late evening when it started to snow… you can imagine how much that delighted me! So much so I went out to take some pics much to the amusement of Mustapha, Soffian and [...]

Bonjour! Today I got to volunteer again at The American Cathedral in Paris to help prepare lunch for those in need. :-) It was a wonderful morning and I’m so glad I was able to contribute my time again for such a wonderful cause. I was out of my apartment by 09h00 and made [...]
in 16eme arrondissement!
Bonjour! Hmmm… embracing the weather gods this morning was a definite challenge at -8 degrees! At the risk of being labelled ‘Murielle-lunch-a-lot’ I was invited to lunch today with my friend Jean-Louis Bonnefond at the Association of Ingénieurs, Maison des Arts et Metiers on Avenue d’Iena in the 16eme arrondissement! We had agreed to meet at [...]
and another lunch!
Bonjour! Wow!! it sure is getting chilly in Paris! Today we had -8 degrees and tomorrow it is going to be -10! Not that I’m complaining, just embracing! Rue de Grenelle Marche! I was out and about relatively early this morning (ok, ok, it was early for me being 11h00!) as I wanted [...]
in the South of France!
Bonjour! I have just returned from a weekend in the South of France with my friends Michael and Eric from Paris and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! TGV to Nimes! We had an early start departing from Gare de Lyon at 08h07 so I made my way via Metro [...]
One of my passions is to travel. However for more than a few years now I seem to have found myself visiting Paris for extended periods of time.. well, make that weeks at least! i know it won't last forever but while it does... I'm going to enjoy every moment!
