I was supposed to go to Paris about a year and a half ago with my friend Nikki and her mother and sister-in-law, but I royally screwed that up by misplacing my passport on my flight home from Nashville and missed the trip altogether.
I WAS GUTTED. So very very sad.
Since then, I’ve been to cities in Slovenia, Austria, Croatia and Italy…but Paris remained an elusive destination forever taunting me for being irresponsible with my travel documents.
I’m thrilled to report that Paris is officially conquered!
My folks flew over for 10 days (they are still here actually!) and we took the Eurostar over for a little Parisian city break!
We rented a beautiful flat in Ternes for 3 nights and had the dreamiest time exploring Paris!
This might be the fastest gimmeyummy photo-taking to blog posting turnaround ever. Split up into two posts – Enjoy!
Our lovely apartment!
A beautiful first meal near the flat at L’ANNEX.
I enjoyed a few well deserved glasses of crisp grassy Sancerre…
Followed by the most gorgeous Escargot…
Rare Rib of beef…
Panna Cotta with Raspberry…
Then a night walk to the Arc du Triomphe…
…and many many stairs to the top!
We awoke the next day to gorgeous electric blue skies and had a beautiful little breakfast at Maison Lacombe.
I had read that people travel all over for their croissants and I completely understand why as I was unable to get a photograph after shovelling the croissant into my face in record speed.
I shall leave you with these and pick up at Notre Dame and all the rest tomorrow! Stay tuned! xx
