Saying goodbye to Paris was very hard. In addition to jet lag and a touch of sickness, I’ve been going through a bit of withdrawal from my daily adventures exploring different pockets of the city. In fact, I’m even having dreams of being there. I guess that just means I have to go back sooner than later.
I ended up taking a camera with me on the trip, but actually used my iPhone waaaay more than I expected, and got some pretty great shots! I took way too many to share, but here are a few of my favorites for you to enjoy.
Lost count on how many times I ordered duck confit during the trip. I’m good for a while.
Sunset over the Seine at the d’Orsay
So fortunate that I got to meet up with one of my best friends and her peeps while she was on her Euro vaca too!
Escargot and frog legs are two of my new favorite foods. Le Frog did ’em right.
Even if the sun isn’t out, how can you not smile when you’re on a beach in Nice?
Stairs on stairs on stairs in Montmartre.
The place is simply magical. We were there for two weeks and I can honestly say that I wish I had an extra one. I was just starting to feel a little bit “local” in my mind. I’m so glad that I had the chance to visit and truly experience Parisian life. Going to a new place really opens up your mind and forces you to think in ways that you usually don’t. I know I’m used to my standard of how things should go, and I’m grateful for being pushed out of my comfort zone, especially alongside the best travel partner ever. Some may say Parisians are rude or standoffish, and I’d have to argue that and say that I think it has to do more with confidence (especially with women) and that they don’t have time to waste – they’re on to the next thing! If only more people could take a little piece of that and implement it in their day to day… me included! 🙂
Je t’aime, Paris. Je reviendrai. xoxo
