The last few weeks I have been on the move and in between spending time with family.  I have been busy balancing work and planning for this next trip to Paris. I am also planning a side trip to Italy and I am looking for suggestions. If you have any favorite cities, restaurants, must see places please share! I haven’t been to Florence in 7 years and Rome its been 11 so I think I might need to pay them a visit. Plus I have been craving gelato and pasta. A perfect reason for a visit. Well that and the fact that I haven’t explored these two cities with my camera in a while. As the years go by my eye changes and its fun to see the city in a different way.

If you are on instagram and would like to follow you can see my daily photos here @rebeccaplotnick I promise to keep you up to date on my travels through Italy/Paris. This should provide a little armchair travel if you can’t make it to Europe.

Here are a few photos from last years Autumn in Paris:

Let the planning begin!

The hard stuff is out of the way I am happy to report I found an apartment in a location I am so excited to explore! I have lived in Montmatre for 4 months and the 5th arrondissement for a month and a half and now I am so happy to be able to explore the 2nd arrondissement. I am staying on a small little street behind the Palais Royal.

You may wonder why I chose this location and perhaps some people may think its a little touristy. I am hoping the small street tucked away behind the Palais Royal will bring a little escape and still put me in the center of the city. I was deciding between a Montmatre apartment that I have already stayed in or the current apartment in the 2nd and I literally got goosebumps thinking of walking out and seeing the louvre, the palais royal, and the seine in the early morning light. When I lived in Montmartre I would walk down to the Seine everyday and well to be perfectly honest I was distracted by every little detail, beautiful door, and boulangerie I passed by. I would arrive to the Seine later than anticipated.

Of course I will miss my favorite boulangerie around the corner in Montmartre but I will be closer to one in the Marais. Clearly I have priorities… I cannot wait to catch up with old friends over coffee and walks through the leave filled streets in the autumn. Let’s be honest who wouldn’t love a backyard that looks like this? Someone pinch me…

Paris Metro Signs

My daily walks would always include a baguette and my camera by my side. I was surprised to see so many different Paris Metro signs around the city. I collected the photos throughout my time in Paris.

I had a lovely lunch with PerfectlyParis today which I will save for another post. I rode my first Velib (bike rental here in Paris) to the Seine and found the cherry blossoms have started to finally bloom. Its just the beginning and I can’t wait!
