First Day in Paris and How to De-Jet Lag

We're back in one of my all-time favourite cities in the whole wide world. Paris. The City of Lights. The City of Love. So many cliches, but j'adore nonetheless! Not even a mild jet lag could stop us from combing the streets of the 7th arrondissement after a mandatory (but short-lived) rest period.

The Champ de Mars and Eiffel Tower was a short walk away from our hotel. Look mom, no jet lag...

And voila! for 2 Euros, you can take a spin 'round a vintage wooden carrousel like we did.

As the afternoon swept us to Rue Cler, we found it abound with gastronomical surprises. I love this Italian shop, Davoli --truly an epicurean's delight!

At Jeusselin Charcutier et Traiteur, they have award winning, well, charcuterie and cheeses, along with homemade comfort foods. The madam at the shop let G have a free ride on this mechanical horse while we scoured the store for our dinner.

The quickest way to get rid of jet lag? Jump right into the city's time zone, keep the kids occupied, drinks lots of water, and have fun! Just like another day at home!
