Blink. Paris Moments

6

Paris is filled with charm. The fun part for me is catching the moments that happen for a blink and then they are gone. This morning it was not sunny and I had not planned to walk over the Seine. At the exact moment I did I caught this:

A man was walking over the bridge and watched me capture the moment. He asked to see the image on my camera to see if I was able to capture the beauty that was in front of us. Luckily I think I did ok 😉

I walked in circles today visiting Paris and showing a friend around to some of my favorite spots. I had my first savory crepe today. What took me so long? I popped by one of my favorite streets for a baguette and then I noticed this bike that had flowers on the back. It was next to a flower shop so I assumed it was part of the display. But quickly realized it was really someone’s bike. Picture perfect I had to grab it while I could. He was extremely patient and gave me a few extra snaps. He just couldn’t figure out why I was so fascinated with this image. For him its normal…

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.

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

 

Morning walk in Montmartre

4

There are so many beautiful parts of Paris. On my last trip I fell in love with Montmartre. I love my walks on the Seine but I also really enjoy looking at the city from high above and admiring all of the Paris rooftops. I decided to choose this area to live when I move to Paris early next year. There will be many early morning walks through Montmartre starting in February 2013!

Paris Morning

My perfect Paris morning includes a cafe creme and a pain au chocolat. The best way to enjoy this is people watching at an outdoor cafe. Grab a seat and enjoy!
