I spent Sunday wandering around Paris and checking out a few things I haven’t seen before in my previous trips there.
I started my day with my Parisian ritual: a croissant and Orangina in the park behind Notre Dame. Them I headed to the Luxembourg Garden, a place I can’t believe I’ve never checked out before.
It’s a gorgeous place and I want to take Nick back there the next time we are in Paris.
Continuing on, I made my way back to Notre Dame for a long leisurely lunch at another of my favorites: Le Petit Pont Cafe. I enjoyed a sandwich mixte and watched the people going by.
Following lunch, I headed to the Right Bank, following the path of the Seine and then crossing over at the Louvre for a stroll through the Tuileries.
I stopped and grabbed a spot in the shade there and spent some time
checking email and catching up on things.
Finally I headed down past Concorde and took in another sight of the Eiffel Tower from the Right Bank, then headed up the Rue St. Honore to grab a final bag of macarons at Laduree ( a couple for me and a box of Nick’s favorite flavors to bring home to him).
Finally I headed back to my hotel, grabbed my bags and headed back to
Gare de Nord to catch my train back to London.
