Anyway, I'm here right now to share part of the photos that I took on our trip. It rained for the majority of our time in Paris (we spent a full week in the city) which, I'm not gonna lie, sucked. Although the rain didn't truly stop us from seeing and doing all the things we wanted to see. I think if anything it made us "turn in early" most evenings where if it were dry we'd probably be out doing much more walking and exploring at night.
I think I took fifty photos of all the different ornate doors I saw in Paris.
The calm before the storm. We were able to do a small bit of strolling through the Tuileries before the first downpour.
Not pictured: my cup of hot chocolate from Paul's that I would buy at every opportunity. Yes, I know Paul's is a chain and for all I know is probably on par with Panera in the US. I don't care! The hot chocolate is so good.
Menacing clouds at the Louvre.
We stayed at an amazing little flat in Le Marais through Air BNB which means that Notre Dame was one of our nearest landmarks that we could easily walk to.
The stained glass doesn't get old.
We checked out a ton of different "off the beaten path" (read: not the Louvre) museums, the musee de carnavalet was highly recommended (and free!). It definitely didn't disappoint. The museum is one dedicated to the history of Paris from ancient times and beyond.
Outrageous art deco tile work?? Sign me up.Anastasia which was fine by me.
crepe stand (the best in Paris as far as I can tell) was down the alley from our flat so yeah, we ate there a lot. Add to this, L'As du Fallafel was even CLOSER to where we were staying (literally 15 steps away) and ughhh amazing, inexpensive, and all together just ridiculously tasty and good. I mean, Lenny Kravitz would never steer you wrong, right?
