an optimist in paris - pt 18/24/2013
Somehow summer days have a habit of passing by quicker than ordinary rest-of-the-year days. It's certainly true in my case, as I can't believe Paris was one month ago. Earlier this summer I decided to visit my sister who lives in England; however I couldn't pass the opportunity to see Thom Yorke perform at Le Zénith, so we planned a weekend getaway to Paris. On the first day of my visit, I lounged at the Parc des Buttes Chaumont for hours like a true local. I was incredibly jet-lagged so the only thing that I wanted to experience was a seine boat ride at night...
It was everything that I could have asked for and more! The seine was lined with picnics,
and boisterous locals who waved at passing boats. The sun started setting at 11pm which
meant that all of the landmarks were covered in a pink glow. A night to remember always.
The following morning I woke up with a full blown cold, which meant that my hopes of being an optimist in Paris were going to be challenged- bah! Nevertheless, we went on to visit some super dreamy spots that I'll be sharing throughout the week! x
Have any of you ever taken a seine boat ride?
