Traveling to Paris the second time around was a different experience for me. On my first trip which was around 6 years ago, I did the typical tourist things such as going to the Louvre, spending the day at Versaille, climbing the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, and buying sandwiches for take away to eat and people watch at Luxemburg Garden. The itinerary was packed because I wasn't sure when the next time I'd be coming back. Since I was visiting my friend Mel this time around who was there for a month, and already conquering all those must see/do tourist things, this was a much more relaxed and go with the flow kind of trip. Good times and missing Paris already. If you've never been, I highly recommend visiting, but during the warmer season. Enjoy the pics!
|Walking back to the flat and passing this ol' thing in the evening all lit up in its beauty. Casual.|
|Having steak and frites, obviously.|
|As well as indulging in many meals that involved escargot that were appropriately doused in butter and garlic. Delicious.|
|I ate so much duck on this trip because…Paris.|
|Looking around and seeing these Paris flats. The view never gets old. So lovely.|
|Waking up and smelling fresh bread and pastries from boulangerie patisseries in every corner. Literally.|
|Picking up the gorgeous Japanese flavored (green tea, black sesame, etc) pastries from Sadaharu Aoki.|
|Feeling the love at Pont des Arts and admiring all the padlocks and engravings on the bridge.|
Hope you enjoyed these little snippets from my Paris adventure. Pictures from London will be coming soon. Xo.
