Big Little Paris

Street ART!!! Paris, I love you, You are so big and full, yet so short and alive. Walking to Poissonnerie Metro station I found the coolest flying Golfish, and this is how I feel, I have been swimming all my life and now I have these fantastic wings that are carrying me through these streets. So much to see and we have only a few days, but we will make the most of it.

le voyage d'une vie

After years of dreaming, planning, hoping, wishing and waiting, Lofty Meadows is finally going to FRANCE! I remember my french obsession phase that I went through as a child, growing up in Noosa, Qld, in the 80's there was a large French presence. Cafe Le Monde, was and still is a very popular Cafe on the main tourist stretch of my old home town, but my favourite was the little patisserie just down the road that was run by a very friendly french couple and sold my all time favourite- Pain du Raisin, although they called it a 'Sultana' for us Aussies. I would buy one (or two) every chance I had, I loved everything about them, heaven in a mouthful, and now I get to eat Pain du Raisin for seven short weeks.

We head for Brisbane International Airport Friday 12th of June and arrive in Paris, On Saturday, 13th of June, 2015. Shaye is currently in Germany and will meet up with us in Paris. So exciting!
