It’s been about two weeks since my return from Paris, and I can’t believe I’m just getting around to sharing my beautiful adventure with all of you. My only excuse is a bad case of jet lag and the dreaded cold I seem to pick up every time I travel.
However, if you follow my Instagram or Twitter accounts, you would have gotten a preview of the amazing time I had. Although I’m excited to be home, Paris is a city that I absolutely adore and am always sad to leave behind. A city which can’t be summarized in a few paragraphs or pictures. It is a feeling. Something magical that surrounds you as you step onto the narrow cobblestone streets or the grand Haussmann boulevards. The romance of the people, the quiet cafes, the steady flow of the Seine and the clouds rolling by as you gaze out the window of a tiny studio apartment under the iconic rooftops of Paris.
Today I want to share with you two of my favourite neighbourhoods in Paris, the Marais and the 2nd arrondisment. As well as the gorgeous oasis of Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis in the middle of the Seine, the home of the world famous Cathedral of Notre Dame. I hope you fall in love as much as I have! In my next installment, I will be sharing two of my favourite markets in Paris…stay tuned!
