During her time in the City of Light, she chronicled the euphoric highs and the laughable lows of ex-pat life on her blog, A Moveable Beast. Though she's now based in New York, she travels frequently to Montreal and Brazil, and she'll use just about any excuse to jet to Paris ("I ran out of fleur de sel"). A regular contributor to Hip Paris, Tory also writes for New York Magazine, Time Out New York, and she is a co-author of's Guide To Life After College. View Tory Hoen's Website

I had this place on my list the most recent time I visited Paris..I regret so much not having enough time to visit it!!

Wow I would love to take my children there someday!

This place is fab…..and so is the Musée del Chasse et de la Nature….I was blown away when I visited…quirky, extremely beautiful and sooooo much more than stuffed animals. I wrote about this Musée on my blog which you may like to have a squizz at. A bientot.

This is one of the BEST places…!

I want to go here so badly! Love the photos-Thanks for taking your readers with you 🙂


that place looks awesome 🙂 I will definitely head down there for a peak 🙂

I finally made it to Deyrolle after four years of living down the street and fell in love. And I was surprised to discover that this is actually a good place to buy gifts. Who wouldn’t want a giant stuffed zebra, after all? 😉 No, seriously, they sell some lovely posters and art books of the Leçons de choses.
