Carte Postale from Paris

1

As you may or may not know from Facebook and/or Twitter, two weeks ago I had the pleasure to spend some time in Paris again. I had managed to squeeze in a little trip there, sometime inbetween Berlin Fashion Week and job interviews in London. And what a wonderful idea that was! We had the most beautiful weather, although it was a little too hot for my liking. Not a single cloud on the blue sky every day – perfect for some Eiffel Tower climbing and bateaux mouches on the Seine!

The first day was spent mainly on the steps in the shadows of Sacré-Coeur. The “quartier” surrounding Sacré-Coeur goes by the name of Montmartre and is a lovely part of Paris with (expensive!) cafés  and the Place du Tertre, where Pablo Picasso lived back in the old days. I couldn’t help but feel at home there once again.

Other days included climbing the Eiffel Tower (okay, I admit it, I used the lift), bateaux mouches on the Seine, like every time I’m in Paris, and a long walk from the Arc de Triomphe along the Champs-Élysées, through the Jardins des Tuilleries (with a quick stop at Ladurée) towards the Louvre. So, here are mes impressions de Paris… Excuse my franglais.

The irony of this is that all the real postcards I sent from Paris either got lost somewhere or arrived after two weeks. But it was Bastille Day so I guess that’s why..

The Eiffel Tower…in case you didn’t know or see it…
