Matt and I stopped in Paris for a quick two days on our way to London. It’s a trip of firsts for both of us. Matt’s first trip up the Eiffel Tower; our first time staying in an apartment instead of a hotel; and our first time taking EuroStar through the Chunnel. So far the first two have been just great! We’re about to head to Gare du Nord to catch our train.
Paris in August is beautiful. The city is fairly quiet because many Parisians are on vacation. Lots of shops are closed, which keeps many of the tourists away. We felt like we had the city to ourselves. The weather has perfect with wonderfully photogenic clouds. Exactly what we wanted for our photos.
Renting an apartment was a smart move. We used Airbnb. This is our second time using them and it’s been really fantastic. Katharina has been a great host. It was easy to get here, the building is on a quiet street, and the apartment is perfect for the two of us. I highly recommend this service for your stay in Paris.
We’ll be back in early September with our workshop group. Now we’re off to London!
À bientôt Paris!
