GOING OUT IN PARIS: Rain? Go artistic, but urban!

Let me introduce myself; my name is Liz and I live with Lou and our son Flip (2014). We live in Amsterdam but love to travel around the world. We are always looking for new local hotspots, young designers and trendy gadgets. Cities we’ve been to we re-discover with the little one and a pram ;-)

Situated in the 19th district is CENTQUATRE (104). A cultural centre for local residents, artists in all their forms and regular people like us. For this tip we take the subway from downtown Paris. Flip loves it. Continue reading

First stop concept store Pepa’s

Pepa’s is a concept store for kids between 0 and 6 years old. Because of the target group of this store, the lack of an easy stroller-entrance is at the least a bit strange. Once inside it is a beautiful store. Many brands on my short list can be found here. The Dutch brand Imps & Elfs is on the shelves as well. Continue reading

In a small side street of Boulevard de Charonne you’ll find restaurant Little Hanoi. A wanted hotspot for everyone who likes Vietnamese food. An Asian restaurant can be a challenge in Paris.

But it ís nice to buy a keepsake as a reminder of the trips you make with the kids. Something they can save in their Timecapsule. Continue reading
