The streets of Paris are bustling with people, music and the smells of tasty treats. It's cobble stone streets wind and turn and can leave you happily lost, stumbling upon some incredible buildings. Today, we walked. Everywhere. It was all about les incontornables de Paris (Paris attractions).
We are staying in Le Marais, a very cute and historical part of Paris which is full of cute shops, bakeries, restaurants and stunning buildings. We each took some time to explore on our own this morning - a run for Kristin, a photo walk for me - to kick off the day. The list of what we saw was incredible, site after historical site just kept popping up around every corner. In total we covered about 12 miles (not including the time spent on the Metro getting around) from Notre Dame to the Louvre, to the Arc de Triomphe, up Eiffel Tower stairs and back and around again. We ate croissants, macaroons, and crepes, drank coffee and wine, and finished our day at Pain, Vin, & Formage (bread, wine and cheese) for a classic fondue experience.
The city could not have provided a more welcoming intro. We hit great weather and are feeling incredibly lucky to have landed at such a beautiful time. Below are a few photos from our day. Thanks for following along!
The adventure continues tomorrow...
