Dans les Rues de Paname
August 11, 2012
Our time in Paris has been synonym of retrouvailles. We got reacquainted with the city and familiar places, that invariably brought back memories from the part of our life in the capital. Our journey was also an occasion to meet family and friends we have missed for years. Unbelievable how in such a short time frame as five years, so many things can change... As a lovely coincidence, we returned on the exact day in the city where Paprika and I officially celebrated our union five years ago. And to top it all, Paris gave us beautiful days...
During our stay, we walked. A lot. And we enjoyed cycling too. We liked how each way gives different perceptions of the city. The architect in me rejoiced in that urban environment. Old or contemporary. The perspectives and details. The contrasting atmosphere from one quartier to another. And how the face of the city changes when comes the night...
It felt good to sit at the terrasse of cafes and watch passers by; drink apéro with friends while telling stories of our life; step into a boulangerie and bite into a good crunchy bread or a fresh viennoiserie; browse around market stalls for fresh fruits and vegetables and feast our eyes on pretty little cakes before having a taste.
All simple little pleasures...
Time went by too quickly, but we had a lot of fun.
Unexpectedly, this trip was like an eye opener and pushed us to reflect on our life and what we want out of it. Yes, travel broadens the mind...
Au revoir Paris...

What a beautiful tour through my favorite place in the world. Every year, we decide on a travel destination, but Paris is always tugging away…return again, and again, again. Thank you for the beautiful sights and moods captured. thyme (sarah)

Quite lovely. Your photos brought back memories of our trip earlier this year, except we got rain. Still, Paris is beautiful, rain or not. Lesley
quand on y habite on ne voit plus Paris sous cet angle mais parfois une belle lumière sur l’angle d’un bâtiment, une vitrine particulièrement jolie et je retrouve le Paris que j’aime… je vois que tu as fait un tour à la Mère de Famille very easy kitchen
Ce Paris là, je l’aime ! Tes photos sont si belles. Sophie
Thank you all ! Always great to read that you enjoy what you see ! Vanille
