Paris, I Love You- Part 3

| Café St. Regis, Île Saint-Louis, Paris |

I now understand that Paris is a city in which one could spend several months and still not fully absorb everything the city has to offer. Only staying for a week put us in the mindset of ‘Go! Go! Go!’- we must try to see, visit, and engage ourselves in as much of the Parisian experience as possible. There were the obvious visits: the Musée d’Orsay, Versailles, Ladurée for French macarons, the Eiffel Tower, & Notre Dame. There were the afternoons exploring various neighborhoods: Saint Germain des Prés, Le Marais, & the Bastille. There were afternoon cocktails at corner cafés, many strolls down the River Seine on our way home, and an afternoon walking the Champs-Élysées (with the unavoidable stop into Zara). I know that we only scraped the surface of all that Paris has to offer, and I can’t wait to return.
