Paris II

Thank you so much for the recommendations! I am so excited to go back to
Paris next year!
I definitely want to try macarons at Piere Herme & Laduree and
ice cream at
Amorino & Berthillon.

I think it's great idea to rent and ride a
scooter in Paris!
I want to do the same thing as
Audrey did.... Her husband rode a scooter and took her
anywhere she wanted to go for a whole day. It sounds fun and romantic!
don't you wanna try this for your honeymoon?

I am glad that you think riding scooter in Paris is a good idea. My husband and I plan to ride scooter in most of the cities in Europe! hahaha...
Paris is so big to visit with two feet and we didn't have time to look through every corner of Paris by just taking their Metro. That was why we rode scooter! The most incredible memories we have. The other time, we rode bicycle in Amsterdam 'cause this city is much smaller.
By the way, I forgot to introduce myself, I am a good friend of Chialin. She recommended me your website because she knows that I love watercolor very much. Ever since I visited your site, I have been addicted to it. Love your illustrations so so much. I think you should publish your artworks so more people get to see them! :-D

All the former suggestions are perfect! (I totally agree for Pierre Hermé's macarons).
May I suggest to go to Musée du Quai Branly, too?
That's were I took the photo I send to Del4yo. It is not so far from the Eiffel Tower, you can go, no you MUST go from one to the other by foot.
Outside the museum is a great garden full of birds and flowers in spring, inside the museum you have great architecture and wonderfull colections of crafts from all around the world. And on top of the museum, you have a fine restaurant and a great view on the Eiffel Tower.

You can also go to Albert Kahn museum and gardens.
Wonderful place, a little outside Paris (but very easy to reach with the metro or bus or even scooter!)

Well, I think I talked enough for a first comment!

Fun drawings Natsumi :)
I absolutely think Audrey had the right idea...a scooter ride around Paris sounds like so much fun...but I think Tomory is too scared to do it!

I just love your colors :)

In Paris there is now a system of bike renting called velib'

You pick up a bike and then drop it on another location. It doesn't work perfectly but it can be real fun!

More about it in English


Hope you will like it :)

I love the "macarons" painting. I would buy it for my friend who loves Laduree but is diabetic.
