Postcards from Paris
The City of Love, The City of Lights, and one of the top destinations on almost every travelers wishlist.
And since it had been Heather’s number one place to go for a number of years, we decided to use it as the launching point for our two month European adventure.
Paris is an immense city to explore and even in April, the tourists run rampant through the city.
Luckily, everywhere you look is so breathtakingly beautiful that you almost forget that thousands of other people are surrounding you trying to experience it as well.
We nestled into a quiet little corner of Montemartre in a quaint apartment that immersed us into the everyday life of a Parisian – from walking to the local bakery for a baguette to buying wine from a small vendor to eating the best tarte aux fruits in the world (found at Le Grenier au Pain).
Paris is truly a city to enjoy life in the Je ne sais quoi kind of way that the French seem to excel at and which we tried to emulate during our 10 days there.
After many amazing experiences and misadventures, I’m not sure if we were successful or not, but we certainly had the best time trying!
If you’ve been to Paris (and I know a lot of you out there have), what were your best memories?
