Ahhh Paris! Films, books, the internet—all are guilty of giving us expectations of places we’ve never been, but Paris really is everything you hope for and I’d move there in a moment if my French extended to any level beyond basic.
For my recent birthday my fella treated me to 4 days in the City of Light. While this was actually my 3rd visit, until last weekend I’d only ever been on day trips so it was wonderful to get 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 and oh my that millefeuille…) and enjoying the views from the Eiffel Tower.
We rounded off a perfect day with cocktails and the most amazing burgers at Bespoke, complete with a huge fountain candle. Don’t let anyone tell you service in Paris sucks!
Paris, je t’aime! Je vais revenir.
