Paris Je t'aime
Posted on 15 April 2010
I used to think Paris was over-rated but after my last visit, I'm singing it's praises like every other gushing francophile. My last experience of it being freezing cold and drizzly with miserable locals has morphed into a romantic memory of sunny street side cafes, effortlessly chic and good looking people, and an abundance of culture, history and creative energy on every corner.
I was fortunate to be staying just across the street from the Louvre and beside the Saint Germain l'Auxerrois. To call it the former parish of the kings of France is an understatement, it is an amazing work of art. I found so much inspiration during my week in Paris.
Lunch at a street side cafe with a mandatory midday glass of wine and a good dose of people watching.A visit to my shoe mecca the Roger Vivier shop was a must. X
