for my birthday my fella totally spoilt me by treating me to 4 days in the city of light. ahhh paris! films, books, the internet – all are guilty of giving us expectations of places we’ve never been but paris is one of those rare places that really is everything you hope it will be. this was actually my 3rd visit but until last weekend i’d only ever hopped on the eurostar & back on the same day so it was wonderful getting to know the world’s most beautiful city that bit better. as they say, paris is always a good idea.
we spent my actual birthday exploring most of central paris, including having a late breakfast at angelina (their hot chocolate is world-famous for a reason & oh my that millefeuille…) & enjoying the views from the eiffel tower. we rounded off a perfect day with cocktails & the most amazing burgers at bespoke, complete with a huge fountain candle. don’t let anyone tell you the service in paris sucks.
i would move here in a moment if my french extended to any level beyond basic. je t’aime, paris! je vais revenir.
