Jardin des Plantes

So the météo, weather forecast, for the weekend was only semi correct, and it end up being quite beautiful the first half of Sunday. J & I therefore decided to take a little stroll with the Wigglemonster in a garden we don't often go to, the Jardin des Plantes, literally the Garden of Plants. It was about 18 degrees out, and with the sun almost 22 degrees, so there were many strollers out and about!

The Jardin des Plantes is the main botanical garden in France and is situated not too far from the Grande Mosquée de Paris in the 5th arrondissement. It is also home to the Museum of Natural History and the Ménagerie, a little zoo. It is a great place for both adults and kids to appreciate nature and at the same time, learn the science behind it. We were here just for a little walk in the sun, but when Wigglemonster is slightly older we will definitely visit the zoo and museum.

  2. Same here, but its fun for bigger kids because of the museum and zoo!

  3. Hi, i'm travelling to Paris with wife and daughter from London by eurostar.Do you mind to recommend a decent hotel to stay in Paris preferably near to train station (as we will carry luggage) and not too far from city main attractions. Thanks.

    1. Hi there! Oohh, I really don't know of any hotels in the area, and I definitely don't recommend staying in the area. Gare du Nord is not at all like Pancras, I highly suggest getting in a cab and getting away from the station ASAP! Main attractions are everywhere really, so if you can specify what you rather be close to, I can maybe help :)
