My favorite way to see Paris is by foot. The metro is easy to get around Paris if you want to go from one side to the next in a short amount of time but you miss so much. Today I woke up before most people in Paris and hiked to the top of Sacre Couer.
This is looking down but its about 268 stairs each way = 536 steps. Which is about one pain au chocolat…
I watched as the city turned on their lights and woke up for their day. This is one of my favorite ways to see the city.
I decided to skip the metro today and see the city by foot. I get lots a lot. I don’t have the best sense of direction. Today I kept the map in my pocket and walked left right straight which ever way I felt until I reached the Seine.
I passed some beautiful doorways on my walk. These caught my eye.
I ended up at one of my favorite places all the way in St. Germain across the Seine. Today was actually the opposite of what I was hoping for. I came to Paris to learn to “sit” and not be on the move as much. Tomorrow is another day.
Goodnight from Paris XO
