Today I'm linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea to share some of my favorite places we visited in Paris this month!
We visited the Eiffel Tower several times, day and night. We had a picnic there. We sat on a bench and talked by the lovely little pond (to the left of the tower as you're facing it from this angle). Our favorite visit there was at night to watch it sparkle on the hour. Isn't it amazing?
We climbed the tower at Notre Dame. There are so many fantastic places in the city to see a beautiful view. This was one of my favorites. Notre Dame is in the center of Paris and this allows you to look out to lots of other monuments in the city, plus see the "island" of Ile de St Louis from an aerial view.
Pierre Herme had my favorite treats of the trip. The macarons there were out of this world. We visited a lot of chocolate shops, patisseries, and boulangeries. And the macarons here were definitely a favorite!
Luxembourg Gardens was my favorite park. There were people playing games, families strolling together, children playing with toy boats, and lots of groups exercising. There was even a station for pony rides for children! It was a sunny day and everyone was outside enjoying some Vitamin D. This afternoon was definitely one of my favorites in Paris!
Finally, this is one of my favorite pictures from Paris. The gold fixtures on Pont Alexandre Bridge, the gold dome covering Napoleon's tomb, the lamp posts and wide boulevards all scream "PARIS Baby!" and we visited this bridge on several occasions. Enjoying sunny days was a rare treat in early April and this also makes this a favorite moment.
Hope you enjoyed my Parisian tour and will leave a comment to welcome me back :)
Happy Friday all!
