Map Nerd (Paris Map of course)

Shopping for a B&B Apartment has never been so much fun!!! With this little google map I've created to help pinpoint exactly where our B&Bs all are located, it's fun even for me...which is crazy because I know where they all are... hahah!

Have a browse, go to your favourite landmark, street or other special spot and see which B&B is lurking around the corner, begging to be booked. If you click on the icon, you can view the full details/images/rates for that B&B :) 

This may be a great way to see which B&Bs are within walking distance from each-other - perfect for groups that may need to book more than one B&B/Apartment :) 

Also fun to see how you might want to navigate on foot your new neighbourhood and checking out the closest google listed and best rated cafes, restos, bar, shops and so on!

I could go one step further and provide navigation guides to all the landmarks nearby each B&B - but that would be crazy! Wouldnt it?? Besides I already have this crazy page attributed to my not-so secret map love!
(my nerdy-ness is leaking)

Ok, enough ramblogging...click the map and enjoy. I hope you all find it useful, somehow :) au revoir

Dining in Paris @ Easter

One of the few restaurants that remain open (Brunch and Lunch only) on the Easter holiday is the chic and EGG-cellent:

(how fitting)

This is a small concept restaurant where eggs are the star ingredient. There’s no ambiguity here, its all about eggs and poultry (from the egg shaped lights to the porcelain egg shaped salt shakers). With a menu that centers around all things having to do with eggs (and there is a SPECIAL Easter menu yearly) its also perfect for a summer day lunch , Sunday brunch or a break from a day shopping in the boutique heavy neighborhood of the Saint Germain des Pres.
