Nancy's Paris Blog


Hi, I'm Nancy Burke and welcome to my blog. I've lived in France on the outskirts of Paris for over 20 years with my husband, Rob, and a little more recently, our black cat Cassie. My friends tell me that I know more about Paris than most Parisians. I don't know about that but I do try to make the most of living in one of the world's greatest centers of culture, art and architecture. Most weekdays I'm out and about visiting museums, taking tours, or just experiencing French life. I was a long time director of the Friday Tour Group and I'm still an active member.

 “Christmas in Paris - 2018”


It seems that I cannot pass a department store Christmas window without taking a picture! Paris becomes magical this time of year and my first stroll took me along Boulevard Haussmann to Galeries Lafayette, with their traditional huge tree under the stained glass dome and the colorful displays at Printemps. Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville (BHV - Marais) was featuring Mary Poppins this year. Plus I never fail to check out Notre Dame's outdoor tree, minature village and espcially the crèche. My most unique photo this year has to be the neon signs showing through the inverted pyramid at the Louvre - Carrousel shopping center.

   My husband, Rob, assembled some of my photos into a 5 minute video with Christmas music. We hope you enjoy wandering through Paris with me and we hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
