I'm back from my whirlwind of a week in Paris and thought I'd share some of my favourite moments- and a thing or two that might come in handy if you're heading to the city (one that does not involve the Tour Eiffel).
Stroll through Jardin du Luxumbourg early in the morning, with croissant and latte in hand and enjoy the gardens before the rest of the city wakes up.
Eat...at Ellsworth Paris. One of my favourite meals. Fried chicken is amazing. Had the most beautiful plate of sardines. I never want to stop coming here. Ellsworth currently offers the best brunch in Paris and opens for lunch and dinner on the weekdays. Make reservations. Please. (I just don't want you to miss out..!)
Paris is all about the windows and balconies. So take a gazillion photos of them, and on them when you get the chance. Eat breakfast on the balcony. Smoke on the balcony. Drink wine on the balcony. Dance on the balcony. Kiss on the balcony.
In Paris, Airbnb > Hotel. It's all about the Parisian experience after all. *Ps, don't forget the balconies!
Explore the hood. Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Le Marais. Montmartre.... You never know what you find. ......
Especially when you find courtyards like these....
......which lead to cocktail bars like these....
Drink wine, eat frites (or fries as we call it) and people watch for hours. Al-fresco style.
Make sure you eat in Derrière... then finish the night in the bar next door, Andy Wahloo.
God... I can't say it enough! I love Paris.... I love it, I love it, I love it.
