As I write this I am sitting in Charles de Gaulle airport wishing I didn’t have to head back home! My first trip to Paris was probably 8 years ago and I was rather underwhelmed. I just didn’t understand why everyone thought it was so wonderful. After my second trip in 2011 I started to change my mind, and now I would stay here at least another week if I could!
Arriving mid Sunday afternoon I had to get myself to Gare du Nord to meet Fran who had travelled over on the train. Armed with some rusty french and directions from our host we took on the task of finding our apartment for the next few days.
We had booked our apartment through airbnb, a first for both of us, and lets just say we will both be doing it again! It was so great to have a place that gave us that authentic Parisian lifestyle even if it was only for a few days.
We dumped our stuff and decided to head out for some exploring.
