Montmartre Streets

Montmartre is filled with character and history

Crazy for emerald green

I am crazy for emerald green these days and after seeing a few of my photographs in print this color is quickly becoming a new favorite of mine.

Morning spring Stroll Through Montmartre

6

As my days here come to an end I try to make the most of every moment. I woke up early for a stroll in Montmartre. When I am up early enough its just me and Paris. Its my favorite time.

Rooftops in Paris, France

My first visitor (my step-sister) has arrived in Paris and she has never been out of the country. I am giving her the whirlwind tour of my favorite city. She is getting used to my long walks because its the best way to see the city! We had breakfast on the balcony and headed off to explore.

We ended the day with a coffee at my favorite place Cafe de Flore.

Snowy day in Montmartre

I woke up to a little snow that has continued throughout the day. It has been a messy wet and windy snowy day but that didn’t stop me. … Paris in the snow is Magical!

Finding my way

0

I am not new to Paris but new to Montmartre. I have only visited Paris and I have never stayed for a long period of time. In so many different ways I am still finding my way…

There are so many grocery stores and boulangeries I have not picked my favorite yet. Although I love a croissant in the morning I can’t eat one everyday. I think I have found my breakfast of choice. Its about a 15 minute walk each day to a street I like in Montmartre where I think I have found my boulangerie. I will post more about that another time.

It took me two attempts but I finally found Rue Montorgueil. Its a very famous market street that has lots of different food vendors. Its difficult to find but I am glad I finally made it there. 

Image

 

One of my favorite things about this street is the mosaic design done in white. You can see it here with the cafe chairs facing outward. It was a very cold February day but I am sure its great in warmer weather

Thanks for following me as I find my way through Paris. Tomorrow I am looking forward to discovering one of the biweekly markets in my neighborhood

Paris by Foot

10

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.

Image

 

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.

Image

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
