My first trip to Paris!! I spent the weekend of my 30th birthday in Paris. (I’d rather not reveal the date, but I guess context is needed – 1996.) It was just long enough to give me a taste of this awesome city. I remember being very tired and jet lagged, but tried to see as much as possible.
(Never buy new shoes before a trip like this.)
I went to a bakery every morning to get a fresh baquette. I love bread, cheese and wine. The French have a good thing going!
I went to the top of the Eiffel Tower. I didn’t want to come down. I could have spent the whole day there, except for the fact that I was craving a crepe. It was a good crepe.
I went to the catacombs – and I don’t need to ever visit that again.
I also really enjoyed walking through Jardins de Tuileries. I spent an afternoon in the Louvre; which isn’t enough time – but again, just enough to give me a taste.
I knew before I arrived in Paris that I would love it and would want to return…….often.
Probably the best birthday present I ever gave myself.
