This was my fourth time visiting and the first time I really felt at home there. I knew my favorite place to get croissants in the morning and exactly what time to hit Angelina to miss the line. It made all the difference. Shamefully, I felt fairly apathetic about Paris before this trip. The sites were incredible, but I felt like I never really got the chance to wander around properly. But now that I have, I am a convert.
La Cave Gormande
Undoubtedly the best meal of my life was in this magical little restaurant. It was the first night on my most recent trip with my best friend on a rainy night in Montmartre I had heard there were delicious restaurants on this street and we picked this one at random. We ordered the crispy goats cheese salad and the beef bourguignon and ate and ate and ate. Every bite was perfect.
This is me essentially making out with a crêpe. It was a beautiful moment. The thing is, this is probably one of the touristy places to get a crêpe - right across the river from the Eiffel Tower. But it is SO delicious.
This is my Dad's favorite place in Paris and it is pretty obvious why. After a few visits I have figured that going around 11am is the perfect time to get the sunshine coming through the windows.
The Lock Bridge
I knew of this place but found it for the first time when I went wandering with my sister. Super photogenic and there are some pretty cool locks. Also gives you my favorite view of this place...
There isn't many new things to say about Notre Dame. It is just epically Parisian. Personally, I think this is the superior view to the front. Just check out those buttresses.
The Eiffel Tower
Art is my thing so this will come as no surprise, but must be included every time I visit. Must see museums: Musée d'Orsay, Louvre, Pompidou, Musée Rodin. Hit as many as time allows.
P.S. This is one of my favorite pictures of my sister. Stunner.
In my opinion, the most amazing part of Paris is wandering around and taking time to explore. There are beautiful stalls along the river and gorgeous architecture everywhere you turn. These moment have been my favorite in this city.
