Pretty postcards from various parts of the city.
Things to know:
- I was debating whether to bring a stroller before our trip. I don't like baggage and it seemed like a hassle. My daughter ended up napping a lot so bringing it saved the day, the trip really. It would have been miserable having to carry her whenever she got tired or sleepy.
- Given that, Paris is not stroller-friendly. While the sidewalks are wide enough to accommodate strollers, more often than not there are no ramps on the curbs so you'll be lifting your stroller a lot. It was a good thing I was traveling with other people. We used the subway once and found no escalators/elevators at the entry/exit points. Someone else had to carry my sleeping daughter or hold her hand while I carried the stroller up and down the stairs. I honestly can't imagine how handicapped people get around Paris.
- If she were smaller and weighed less than 30 pounds I would have gotten around fine with the Ergo carrier, which I've used for every trip until now.
