PARIS Part Three

We awoke to another gloomy and bitterly cold day.  Stuffing my bag with snacks and other goodies, I was determined to have a picnic at the Luxembourg Gardens. And even though our bones were shivering, that is just what we did.

PARIS Part Two

I was determined to start the morning off in a nutritious, and healthy way... jokes. Laduree was the first stop. Obviously. To be honest, last time I came to Paris I was by myself and made an ill-informed decision to get a pistachio-flavoured macaroon.

PARIS Part One

It was February and we were fresh off the plane in Germany. I was minus one piece of luggage and was definitely feeling the Winter temperatures. We headed straight to Paris on the high-speed train the next day. We were up at sparrows fart as jetlag had kicked in at 5am- we were ready to take the day. Braving the cold we hopped on the metro and headed to our first stop;  the Notre Dame. It is such a beautiful cathedral; the stained glass windows and gargoyles are sublime.
