My French Vacation (Paris) Hotel Delambre

I loved that I had a room in the hotel with a balcony...and flowers! It reminded me of the etching I did a few months ago. I had such fun going out there and looking down at the Montparnasse street that was my home for a week. Here are two photos from there.

My French Vacation (Paris)

Last week I returned from a wonderful 3-week adventure to France. There were so many great parts to it that I thought I would start at the beginning and show some photos I took along the way. I became especially interested in going when I found a workshop called Capturing the Paris Wow, taught by Cynthia Morris, a writer and creativity coach. Our goal was to fill a small sketchbook with images and/or writings of our experiences in  Paris. We traveled around the city, sometimes together and sometimes alone, and experienced as much as we could in six days. With all of the goings-on, my mind had trouble imagining that sleep was necessary!
Here are a few photos of my hotel, Hotel Delambre, in Montparnasse ,Paris.
A small hotel with a friendly staff!
The plaque by the front door says "DANS CET HOTEL A VECU, EN 1891, L'ARTISTE PEINTRE PAUL GAUGUIN"   I think Gauguin stayed here but I'm not entirely sure. But as an artist, I like the idea!
