Bloggers Get Together....

was the main reason we went to Paris.....and it had to be that week as Carolyn and Clive were flying in from Australia, via America....for just that week before flying to the UK...what a trip!!

Clive, Carolyn, Kim B, Caroline, Dasha and Serene

Dawn (standing) Mel and Andrea

Unbeknown to me Leesa had arranged with 10 others to meet too!! We all met outside Aimees Teashop....L'Oisive The...we were getting quite excited about this...and Leesa wanted to surprise Aimee with us all, so had not booked, but unfortunately, it did not go to plan, as Aimee's assistant, took the day off, had to do something else, and poor Aimee was not feeling well....we never did get to eat one of her famous salads, we did go there again but was closed Exceptionally...Maybe one day!!

But there we all were, introducing ourselves, and chatting away, it was quite surreal really...but great!! We were told about another restaurant in the area so we headed off there..It is the Les Cailloux ...a really lovely place, and food was great..I would go back there again. Across the road was a lovely little Honey Shop..Les Abeilles...

We had a fabulous time, lovely food, great company..just a fun time...Thanks to Leesa and everyone for making it a great day!

There was Leesa, Dawn, Elizabeth, Andrea, Dasha, Mel, Kim B, Joanne, , Serene, Carolyn and Clive, Sam, Caroline and Me!! Unfortunately Barbara could not make it due to an unforeseen operation..but we did get too meet another post to do!!

Ok not everyone had a blog..did we care, of course not, We were all with Friends having Fun!!!


  1. That sounds like a fun meet up :-) I am still awaiting my first bloggy meet up.

  2. CherryPie - It was so much fun, and we were all ages, all from different backgrounds, and countries, Brilliant. Oh you must try and arrange one, that is what Leesa did for us all.

  3. What a wonderful day for you, and there were so many too!
    I'm hoping to organize a blogger get-together for those around the Amalfi Coast this July, there are a few of us now- want to come?

    Thanks for the tips on Paris, I'll remeber to look them up next time I head over there.


  5. isn't it the best fun when bloggers get together. As you know Peter from Paris came to Menton along with others and we really did have such a great time, as did all of you - obviously.

  6. That is wonderful that you got to meet so many people. You had good people to share some time with in Paris. Paris!

    It can't get better than that!

  7. It's like a miracle Anne! Awhile back, before I started a blog, I read Susanna's Sketchbook (through Tongue and Cheek). I saw she lived around an hour away & asked if she would like to meet in real life and we did! Somehow I just felt I could trust her because of her words on her blog. And I was right. She was my first (online) friend.
    So now you see, I DO share in your joy. All of these people you shared your adventure with are now a new kind of friend in a special way. Words show the essence of a person.

    Thank you for your comment!
    The only failure is not to try! So many times my dreams have not worked out with the things I try, BUT It seems like good stuff comes out of just getting the ball rolling and trying.


    Great Post!

  8. Are bloggers as exciting in real life as they are on their blogs. I would be afraid to disapoint. This looks like a great bunch of clever people.

  9. Thanks Anne- this was sooo great and such fun to meet you and all the others in person.

    I hope you do get back to Paris and our paths cross again soon (if not in Paris, when you accompany your hubby to Formula 1 Down Under!).

    Cheers and take care.

  10. Hi Anne,
    It did sound like fun :)
    I missed out, but I couldn't do otherwise but to stay at home & mend.
    Yeah; 14 around the table !
    I would have like to experience that.
    Hugs to ya xx


Thank you to everyone for commenting, it certainly makes my day. A pleasure to see everyone of you. Old and New.. Blogging not only opens up the world but gives us new friends.
