Been There, Seen That: Paris Edition

 The view from my hotel room.

I'm home...did you miss me? Paris was ahh-mazing!! I did a lot, a lot, a lot of walking through the city, so much that I almost wore a hole through the sole of my ballet flats, but it was worth every step. I saw all of the sights I had on my list of "must see places" and them some. I realized that my french is totally pathetic, but that it's good enough to place an order in a restaurant and conduct simple retail transactions.

Everything was so picturesque in Paris, from the charming apartment buildings to the numerous brasseries and cafes lining the streets of the St. Germain district.  I had an amazing experience, soaking in the atmosphere of the modern Parisian lifestyle, while at the same time surrounded by centuries of history. What an amazing trip, highly recommended!!
