Just last week I was telling you how I was off to Paris, and here I am, back from 4 splendid days in the city of light, love and macaroons. They were over too soon but I feel that overall I did make the most of every minute spent there.
Wet, damp Paris helped me better enjoy my 'Vin Chaud' and crepes with warm chocolate and biscuits. After a rainy day, the sun came out for us to make the most of Jardin Tuileries, located right between the majestic Place de la Concorde and the Louvre Museum. We made our way to the latter and started walking past the Seine. I had it all planned out, you see. Late lunch at Rue Cler, whilst making the most of Rue Cler street market stocked with the freshest food and vegetables, the fromagerie (which I loved, but for hubby it was only a festival of mold), fresh fish and flowers. Once we were done with lunch and un cafe, we made our way to the Eiffel Tower. It was the point that mother nature decided to soak us wet and we were left with no choice but to hurry to our hotel. Dinner was booked at Chez Papa; an awesome little venue filled with yummy food aromas and a pianist and a guy on a saxaphone rocking some jazz ;) Life is good, in Paris it's even better!
That was only the first out of 4 days spent in Paris, but I don't want to bore you with all the details, I feel I'm always rambling non-stop lately :) So no details, but if you're going to Paris (GO, GO, GO!) any time soon, be sure to visit Place Victor Hugo, the Sacre Coeur and Montmartre, Marche aux puces de Saint-Ouen, the Notre Dame and do walk along the River Seine nibbling some cake purchased from Ile St Louis. Try the foie gras and a glass of some nice Bordeaux. Oh, and the macaroons, don't forget the macaroons! Even if you're not after a crazy shopping experience, Galeries Lafayette is still worth a vist, but that's up to you obviously ;)
If you've never been so far, do give visiting Paris a thought. A noble man once said 'A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life'. He was so right.
