So to end Paris as if it will ever end, it was the last full day before a day of travel. We decided to send a few post cards back. So of course we stopped at the post office, went to a museum, ate well and one last trip to the Eiffel Tower to tour the inside of it!
Shout out to the postman who handled our post cards. It’s so funny when the French switch to English cause they can see how much of a struggle Americans have to speak fluent French.
Now I could have since it was included in our hotel price to eat the breakfast provided. The way them nightly or all day is wines were set up I needed to sleep it off!! Kyla my girl was on go daily and so she did her morning ritual of going to get her food way before we woke up! Marques and I after the post office stopped at Metro Cafe. The food was amazing and so was the service.
This pumpkin soup needed no salt; no nothing simply delicious
Americans do French fries which isn’t a French dish better
The fresh squeezed orange juice was absolutely amazing
I had so much daily rosé it don’t make no sense
His shirt reads, Broke Phi Broke and that makes sense
So after an amazing brunch like moment it was off to a museum!
We 3 decided to go to Museum Picasso. The Art was exquisite. Different genres all meshed and beautifully stunning, provocative, and engaging!
After which we were hungry again but hey when you are walking around for hours at a time it’s bound to happen! We stopped at one restaurant but it was their dinner time or that’s the way it came off as we sat for quite some time. The French don’t move as steadily on service like we do in America. We are more concerned in increasing numbers of those that come into an establishment over making sure that those around have an experience.
We finally stopped at Pizza Pino!
This lemon sorbet with vodka had me so super rocked……that’s all I can say on that
It was off to our final rendezvous with the Eiffel Tower. Unlike seeing it on a boat, seeing it lit at night and being in touching form, this was about going inside. The tickets that we got gave us access to the first and second floor. The very top was sold out for days!! The experience was more than I could put into words! Seeing Paris in a different light was just breathtaking.
As you can see Paris looks even more amazing inside the Eiffel Tower!
Brioche with Nutella it was necessary
After a long night it was time for one last meal…and more of that lemon sorbet and vodka at Mon Coco!
Veggie burger that would put an American veggie burger to shame
The star of the night; lemon sorbet with vodka…..
After beautiful days in Paris, it was time to return home. Lessons learned, Paris was an amazing experience! I would do it all over again! I’m grateful for this time and happy for a semi easy travel time outside of an extended search on the way home in 🇮🇸 Iceland!
I was loving the fact that in their airport it’s very different than an American airport where food is concerned. Vegan, vegetarian options are plentiful!
Finally back home, finally with our children, finally back on Go it was nice to slow it down a bit!
Paris owes me nothing but I’m grateful that I took the journey!
Thank you Ray and Chrystal for the invite none of this would have happened without your wedding invite nudging it along. May your union be filled with tenacity, and the joy that life brings!
Thank you Kyla for accompanying and being on this trip.
Thank you Marques for making sure that every desire I had you made come true. Thank you for renewing a clear path in how we love and live and being each other’s friend as we go through this life as partners, parents, and solid and dope individuals!
Thank you Paris for such amazing culture, hospitality, and just overall greatness!!
