Paris In Spring

Paris was an amazing weekend getaway back in January with my work friends Tracy and Jen. We joked after our Eurostar debacle which delayed us almost three hours getting to Paris that maybe we’d return in the spring. Well sure enough we managed to find a good ticket price and a free weekend, and were off again to lovely Paris!!

We learned from our time in January and planned our trip with an extra night. This made all the difference! On Friday afternoon we took the Eurostar from St. Pancreas and arrived in Paris around 6:30. It was still light outside and we were ready for a lovely weekend!

It was an easy 15 minute metro ride from Gare du Nord to our airbnb in Montmartre where we checked in and freshened up before going to dinner. We part walked and part taxied to our place, Robert et Louise. It was a complete deja vu meal and it was divine!

Escargot, a bit of vino and the best duck confit EVER.

Our fab find from January became a Paris tradition for us, one I hope we can return to somewhere in the future!

We woke up bright and early on Saturday morning to a gorgeous day in Paris. Continuing our throwback to our January trip we took the metro to Pont Marie for breakfast at Cafe St. Regis.

The cutest petit chien dined at the table across from us with his owners.

And we had the most fabulous grump of a waiter, who loved us but repeatedly called the till a whore and muttered other obscenities while scurrying about with the breakfast rush.

After breakfast we strolled past Notre Dame and began a day of shopping!!
