Paris was a place we had both been before, and as such we spent less time touristing- more time wandering and exploring some different areas. Then again, course there are some touristy-things that are always nice to see again.
Obligatory wine and cheese picnic in the gardens of the Eiffel Tower on our first night
We spent some time wandering our Montmarte, stopping for creme brûlée in the cafe made famous in one of my favourite movies- Amelie.
For some unknown reason their were burst pipes all over the city as we walked around!
I also required multiple macaron breaks- we were in Paris after all!
Our next destination is one of those places I have always wanted to go and had rather high expectations for- New York City! We were meeting up with my parents for one last little adventure with them before we split for the next four months whilst we study in Canada. We actually met them at the airport in Frankfurt where we happened to both be transiting through- us from Paris and them from Stockholm!
As I said, I had very high expectations for the big apple. It. didn't. disappoint!! There is certainly a reason why I've never heard anyone have anything but love for this place- it is exciting, pulsating, beautiful and messy- and absolutely wonderful!!
Chicago on Broadway!
Chelsea markets- a fabulous place for food and fresh produce
lobster rolls at the markets!
New York- I'll be back. <3
