An Introduction to the Paris Guides
Back in September I mentioned I would post my guides to Paris. We had just gotten back from a wonderful ten days in my favorite city and I was on such a high. I took SO MANY photos, explored new neighborhoods and restaurants we had never been to before and went back to a bunch of our favorites. As soon as we got home, though, I began to feel under the weather. Then I was immediately back and forth to Ohio for family events, which accelerated and exacerbated my sickness thanks to all the flights and the massive weather changes. I got the worst sinus infection I’ve had in years which then turned into acute bronchitis and left me feeling awful and lethargic for nearly a month. I didn’t do much of anything other than sleep, pour through a stack of books, watch ridiculous amounts of tv, and sleep some more.
(Some people can work through sinus infections like they are no big deal. I am not one of those people. They wreck havoc on my body leaving me semi-lifeless and miserable for days. My temperature spikes 3-4 degrees, my sinus cavities pound so hard that my entire face hurts not only to touch but just to be, breathing becomes difficult, sleeping becomes difficult even though it’s all I want to do, I get a horrible rash, focusing my mind on anything for more then 5 minutes is a struggle…you get the picture. I’m no fun at all.)
Now that I’m healthy again and through the craziness that is Thanksgiving prep and cooking, I’ve revisited all my photos and notes from Paris. I came to realize that there are a ton of places I want to share with you so instead of cramming everything into one monstrous post, I’ll be breaking it down over the next two weeks into five categories:
Cafes and Bistros
The Essentials: A 48-hr Guide to Paris
I’m considering doing a final post about my favorite places to stay, shop, and hang out but I’m not sure yet, so let me know your thoughts!
For now, here are some of my favorite snaps from around the City of Light.
