2012 European Vacation Part 4: Paris

The fourth (and final!) leg of our European vacation (view Part 1: LondonPart 2: Bournemouth, Winchester and Oxford, and Part 3: Southern France if you miss them!) was spent in Paris.  Just like London, I had visited Paris once before, seven years ago, with one of my best friends.  However, it was completely different going to the City of Love with Mr. Lemon :)  We went on a self-guided chocolate tour, saw Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur,  the stairs in Montmarte, the Arc de Triomphe, the Pont Alexander III (my favorite bridge!), the Musee d’Orsay, Moulin Rouge, and of course, the Eiffel Tower, just to name a few!  The city is so stunningly beautiful and I think Mr. Lemon may be even more smitten than I am with it.  I ate a repeat favorite of mine – a waffle smeared with chocolate while sitting under the Eiffel Tower – as well as the most amazing two bites of dessert either of us had ever eaten – a chocolate macaron from Pierre Herme.  If you are ever in Paris, seek them out!  Soooo delicious.  Unlike the south of France, touring Paris for non-French speakers was not too difficult.  Most all Parisians that we encountered not only spoke English, but were  friendly as well (this is not the impression I’d been given before traveling to France either time, but I have to disagree wholeheartedly with anyone who says that the French are not hospitable).  Can’t wait to return!
