Love and Rain in Paris

July 14, 2012

Paris was grey and moody during our visit…rather strange weather for July.

We found ourselves often caught out amongst eager downpours of fat sky drops, leaving us saturated from the knees down. But I didn’t even mind…it was Paris. Excitement still bubbled inside despite looming clouds up ahead.

Drying off in Crêperie de Josselin was a pleasure.

And there was still time for ice-cream. Many a Pozzetto scoop and this…Berthillon salted butter caramel.


Wandering for hours during the day…

…relaxing in the Tuileries when sunshine did appear, in all it’s fervent glory…

…and searching for hidden cocktail bars in the Marais during the evening.

Yes, we had a marvellous four days in Paris.

Ending rather appropriately, I feel, with Ladurée macarons on our flight to Marrakech.

C’est Bon.

    Aah, there is no better way to end a visit to Paris with a visit to Lauduree! I bought a box of 30 back home for myself last I was there….Shame about the rain, but I suppose as long as you make the best of it, you're still bound to have a good time 🙂

    It was strange weather everywhere we went in Europe. We were cold in Paris, got sunburnt in London. There was a heatwave in Vienna and Prague (four days of +40 degree temperatures and many others in high 30s), rain in Berlin and the coldest summer in memory in Denmark. Luckily when you are holiday, it doesn't really matter because, well, you are on holiday! Looks like Paris treated you well.
