pretavoyager For the 2nd time this week taking a day trip train trip out of Gare du Nord. Lille bound. Love being able to walk straight up to train 5 min after arriving at station. Day trips are great because you travel like it's any day and no need to pack an extra bag! I don't even take the 1st train out of the day - it's about slowing down. #paris75010 #gareduNord 2d

pretavoyager This pool is unnecessarily deep in the deep end given it's too shallow for me to flip-turn in the shallow end. Also amused that there are 2 sides to the shower/locker room but they're both co-ed! #parispiscine #paris75006 3d

pretavoyager Feeling so inspired after my visit to #QuentinBlake #InsideStories at the House of Illustration yesterday. I love insights into the process of how creatives work. HT to @sarahmsnapshot for posting the expo on Instagram so I could discover it too. Sarah also wrote a great piece on the show for a The Paris Review! #London #houseofillustration 5d

pretavoyager Today I took a journey to #London to see Quentin Blake 'Inside Stories' at House of Illustration. His work was the first illustrator I came to know/identify by name thanks to his collaborations with Roald Dahl. 6d

pretavoyager The Dean of @parsonsparis invited me to the #expoBaccarat at Le Petit Palais preview tonight. Impressionant! (Cool use of mirrors and light - this photo is a reflection of the bottom of a chandelier). #paris75008 6d

pretavoyager It's amazing what a simple swim can do for my mental state; ideas start to come together. Between all I juggle + the very limited/inconvenient pool hours it can be a challenge. The good news is b/c of the pools being on strike every Sunday lately they extended my pass for 6 months for free!! (So I guess strikes aren't always so bad). #paris75010 #parispiscine 7d
  •   doublebravo Ah! Your pools. Amazing!! 7d
  •   pretavoyager @doublebravo they're less amazing when a swimmer in the "fast" lane swims in the center making it impossible to pass, and in fact no one in the fast lane is fast at all ;) 7d

  •   mindfullfood Once I requested to the lifeguard that they instigate the revolutionary concept of circle pattern swimming. The French like their revolutions, just not in the swimming pool... :-0 ! 6d
  •   doublebravo @pretavoyager heavens, the tomes I could write on swimming etiquette and stories that ensue fr lack thereof ... ;) 6d
  •   pretavoyager @mindfullfood @doublebravo I've written 2 Paris Piscine pieces on my blog. Still so many more I need to get out of my head! Nothing at the pool is common sense ;) 6d
  •   doublebravo @pretavoyager @mindfullfood Will have to read them for sure. The getting is the same Re NYC swimming. My children know to ask about aquatic shenanigans on days when I swim. .. 6d
  •   pretavoyager @doublebravo ha! Awesome! There's not a day I don't have a story or nearly choke from the invented stroke of the day I have witnessed (both articles are linked on the Life in France page found on top of my blog) 6d
