I settled down in a café to rest my weary feet, and ordered a croissant and a café creme as I watched the world go by. I chose this particular cafe because it was at the foot of the Basilica Sacre Coeur, such a commanding and beautiful church atop the hill.

I always have my notebook with me, so I can sketch or write or even staple business cards and postards in, as the journal of my daily adventure – they’re wonderful to look back on when I’m back at home, as they conjure up the memories and emotions of that day.

Do you write in a journal when you travel?

  1. I think I might have been to that cafe! I definitely had to have a sit down and a cold drink when I went in the height of summer. Great blog :)

      You probably have :-) Yes it’s a great area, every time I visit Paris I go to this area to buy fabric, see artists, and enjoy the Montmartre atmosphere.
