Montmartre, Paris, France.

Paris apartment rentals are wonderful, but…

Paris apartment rentals are wonderful, but…their damn staircases. It is a pretty staircase  though, but we’ve seen too much of it from our top floor apartment.

Check this out for fun in our Paris apartment rental. It’s a long way up, and a long way down. You really need to plan your day when you’re living on the top floor of one of these beautiful old Montmartre apartments. You just don’t nip out for a baguette, it’s a mission. Still, it’s a great way to keep fit and they say that people who live in walk-up apartments live longer because of the exercise right up until old age. Something to think about.

    Groceries were fine, the suitcases not so much…at least there was a bottle of champagne there at the top waiting for us, we needed it!
    Read a report the other day that old men who live in walk up apartments live longer and are fitter…

    Reminds me of a rental I had in Barcelona many years ago. 6th floor, with gradually narrowing stairs, the last set, up to the rented flat, was quite narrow and had to carry the suitcase behind me while going up. Thankfully I was fitter back then than now… I can definitely see how people live longer trekking up and down this every day.

    Awesome! I started laughing until I remember that day when after a week vacation in South Africa I had a terrible overnight flight, where I got no sleep, sat on a jumpseat for over 10 hours, then got to the parking lot in Malpensa (Milan) airport and seeking clueless my car…I suddenly remembered that I had parked it at Linate airport….only 70 miles away….ooops! Wrong airport!
