The past three weeks have exceeded my expectations and although I am slightly jet lagged I am very excited to be able to post a few words here and share a few quick thoughts.
In the next few days or weeks I plan to do some more in depth posts on Paris and my travels south to the idyllic and enchanting village of Auvillar and the surrounding countryside.
Notre Dame Cathedral Paris
the iconic church on the Seine.
Paris IS a beautiful city!
The best way to see it is to walk in the various arrondissements taking in the sites then when you get tired stop for a coffee and a croissant in a street front cafe.
(Great way to study Chic Paris Street Style!)
Lunches were delicious and I frequently opted for salads, omelets and I tried a traditional Croque Monsieur.
I started my day with a big breakfast in the morning at the Hotel.
The bread in France is like nothing I have ever tasted before...I don't know what they do to it but it is exceptional!
Meandering along the rues and grand boulevards gives you the best views
and behind the beautiful doors there are hidden gems if you peek inside!
These doors, when opened reveal an inner courtyard.
I was obsessed with these doors and took many photos of them...
if you followed me on Instagram while I was away you've seen quite a few already!
The Ooh La La Tour was fabulous and I met some great women.
I'll chat more about this later...
I had some fun and silly moments after our tour of the Fragonard museum!
I'm going to miss the champagne social...
that The Hotel Belloy provided every afternoon...
oh and the pastries and espresso!
I'm happy to report that my carry on was the perfect way to travel and my minimum wardrobe worked beautifully and I wore every item several times in the 3 weeks that I was away.
