Paris for the Weekend

Oh Paris, what am I going to do with you? Paris is one city that I just can't get my head around. Every time I go, and granted this is only my second visit, I feel like I'm not quite getting to grips with the place, like I'm just not doing it right.

I love it, I love the food and the character of the city, everything it has to offer from art to people watching - but I always leave feeling like I've just scratched the surface. Probably because I need to go and visit for longer than just a weekend. I'm not sure that's such a good idea though because I would probably end up eating all the cheese and all the bread, there would be nothing left for anyone else!

This time we didn't stay in an airbnb, we stayed in a hotel and it wasn't anything special so I won't link to it. Two places we did visit however, that I would absolutely reccommend, are the Place des Vosges, where we sat outside and had a lovely glass of wine and listened to a string quart playing in the background. We did a lot of shopping that day and frankly it was lovely just to put our feet up, have a drink and watch the world go by. The second place we visited for breakfast the next day was Les Deux Magots - a beautiful little cafe with delicious food and a wonderful history, some of its regulars included  Léger, Picasso, Hemmingway... you get the idea.

I have more to post on Paris, but I sure do hope you like travel posts because I have lots more in store over the next few months. This coming Tuesday I'm off again and I'm excited to share my adventures!
