le fabuleux destin d'amélie poulain.

Sure, it's a bit cliched, but Amelie is my favourite movie in the whole world, so of course when I went to Paris I couldn't resist checking out a few of the sights up in Montmarte, where she 'lives'. I found this awesome walk that we decided to do late one afternoon. Above is the metro station where she leaves the blind man after showing him around the streets; the grocers (Maison Collignon) which still has the sign from the movie, but was unfortunately closed by the time we got there; and Amelie's cafe, Café des deux Moulins, where we stopped for a coffee :) It wasn't exactly the same as in the movie (the glass where she wrote backwards was gone!) but it was still cosy, and not overcrowded with tourists, surprisingly. We also found on our walk one of the last remaining windmills in Paris, and a cute vintage store.

How wonderful, Steph. If I make it to Paris soon I will have to do this walk also. I am enjoying your photographs of your overseas adventures immensely :)
