A Preview to Paris.

I don't think there are adequate words to describe how I feel about Paris. Photographs will have to suffice for now. This city is dreamy, magical and mysterious. It's ancient, modern and everything in between. I spent the first two days pinching myself to make sure it was actually REAL.   After seeing the city of lights as a backdrop in so many films, it was hard to believe I wasn't on a movie set. Here's a little taste of Paris for those who have been anxious to see some of my Parisian adventures (more posts in detail to come in the next few weeks, including an in-depth post on the cooking class I attended!).

Notre Dame from the bridge entering the Ile De Cite.

 The street up to our apartment in the Latin Quarter.

 The fountain at Place Monge on market day (5 minute walk from our apartment).

The Eiffel Tower, breathtaking. I couldn't stop taking pictures of it.

 A typical Parisian meal at a brasserie around the corner from the Eiffel Tower.

 St. Sulpice Church. 

 Heaven at Pierre Herme. The most beautiful desserts and the best macarons on earth.

 The Pantheon from our terrace. Roughin' it.

 A view of Sacre Coeur from the Metro station, Anvers.
