Hello everyone

I am planning to take my grandchildren to Paris - singly - starting with the 12 year old. I thought we would stay for three nights, in the centre somewhere and I would love to hear about other people's experience and to have some advice about things to do, places to stay, places to go etc. We'd probably fly as it would be from Newcastle.

I like Paris much. Place to visit is good. I no get bored when my kids are near as they are interesting very and find good in all situation. To you I recommend to not visit until October as you want to go when it is cold and rainy. I like rain a lot. My kids don't like rain. Rain is good. Rain is nice. Rain is me.

I totally agree (dora the explorer). My granddaughter luvs that show, she now does Spanishsmile I went to Paris in 1986, that wasssss a goooood year. The first romance I ever had was in Paris, his name was Jeff, he was as feisty as an African Lion, but he was 15 years younger than me! Oh wait it was Brett, silly me hehe. ANywaysssss, I stronger recommend snails, you can use them in more than one way... Ask Brett. Mind you the grandkids don't like them!

I'm doing a lot of wrapping too. Just stopped for a coffee break.

Just in case others planning to go abroad with grandchildren read this, it is a good idea to have the written permission of both parents with you. Security is being stepped up for children travelling without both parents.

There is indeed a link to this thread in an online textbook at

We have become an example of"the discourse structure of the forum and the linguistic behaviour in it" And there we thought we were just having an online chat!
