Bonjour! By the time spring rolls around here in Michigan, my thoughts turn to my very favorite place in the world, Paris! I love the Parisian lifestyle: shopping for fresh ingredients for your meals each day at the neighborhood markets, enjoying the most delicious croissants for breakfast (or petit dejeuner as they call it), strolling along the river Seine, stopping for a glass of wine at a little outdoor cafe, watching an expert crepe maker prepare the most magnifique crepe filled with nutella (creperies seem to be on every street corner). Wow! It seems as if I have food on the brain when I think of Paris! I thought I would share a few photos from our trip last year, and the year before, both in May. We are so fortunate to be able to travel for really cheap, or sometimes free, as hubby has worked in the airline industry for years. Anyway, hope you enjoy the tour!
Please forgive me in the placement of some of my photos! I am still trying to learn the ins & outs of blogging! I would love to be able to figure out how to add captions below the photos. Any help would be appreciated!
The first pictures are when we visited Claude Monet's Giverny. It's only about 1/2 hour train ride from Paris. It is beyond gorgeous! The huge chateau is Chateau Fontainbleu, that we toured last year. It is just incredible, and hard to believe people actually lived so lavishly! It's about 1 hour from Paris by train. Oh, that's another great thing about Paris, you don't need a car to get around. Actually, you wouldn't want to, because they drive like maniacs! It is so fun to walk everywhere (so I can afford to eat sorbet every day!), or take the metro or train.
Check out the two pictures of the cute bunnies in the shop window. They are made entirely of chocolate! And I just had to snap a picture of the menu on the chalkboard (I love chalkboards) outside of a cute little bistro. Tres chic!
Can't wait to return to our favorite city! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
