last minute european adventure {paris}

by @according2kelly on April 27, 2011

i love paris in the springtime.
i love paris in the fall.
i love paris in the winter when it drizzles.
i love paris in the summer when it sizzles.

but let’s be honest, paris in the springtime, really & truly is best of all… walks along the seine, round the notre dame, paris restaurants, morning croissants.

a morning stroll through the louvre, spending a little quality time with a few lovely ladies. (i like to pay a visit every time i’m in town.)

& even though we’d already spent a wonderful evening, eating crepes underneath the eiffel tower… (which still mesmerizes me every time it lights up & twinkles.)

we went back the next day & ate lunch inside the eiffel tower, 123 meter above the ground – all i can say is… oh la la!

& you can’t visit paris (even if it’s your 7th time) without playing tourist. we stayed busy visiting notre dame, the arc de triomphe, moulin rouge, champs elysees, & louis vuitton.

but my absolute favorite memory was a late afternoon on the steps of the sacré-cœur cathedral. located at the summit of the highest point in the city, the sacré-cœur cathedral is the perfect vantage point for an absolutely breathtaking view of the city.

au revoir paris!

oh no...you were in Paris and I didn't know it (you didn't come see me?) I'm so glad you had a fun time :)

No crepes? That is how you stay so skinny :)

That is just beautiful - and so lucky for you to be able to take a last minute vacation like that. Paris is on my short list of places I *must* visit... and I think it may have moved up a touch after seeing your pictures of the Eiffel Tower. Now I need to go there. :)

I'm sure she'd consider your "application!" and I did get my Louis in Paris, on a previous trip!

haha! We ate LOTS of crepes. I just had to promise not to publish the photographic evidence! They were wrapping the crepes in cones & filling them with whipped cream or ice cream.... delicious!

It was so much fun & you definitely MUST visit Paris. I wish I could spend a month (or more) there!
