It is funny to me that I have been back to Paris so many times even though it is one of my least favorite spots in Europe. It is convenient, I suppose. To travel in and out of. When I found out my family was planning on spending almost a week in Paris I was excited for them (to see it) but also excited for me, to see if I could learn to love Paris. I really didn’t want to re-do all of the touristy things I did last Summer (and before that too) so I spent my time going slower, wandering different streets, visiting different stores, trying to be a bit more French and a little bit less touristy. It worked, a bit. I still don’t love Paris but there are things about Paris I do enjoy. Here are a few snapshots from the week!
We had a picnic at the base of the Eiffel Tower:
We visited the Notre Dame (which I was excited for as I had not visited it since I was 16).
