Last week I was back in what most people refer to the City of Love, Paris. I lived there two years ago and even though I have been back a few times since moving, it has always been for the work and only for the day. This meant seeing Paris through the taxi in between the station and the showroom. This time was different as I stayed for two days and spent the night in Paris, still for work but more time for pleasure this time.
When walking from Garde de Nord ( Yes luckily Londoners can take the train to Paris) to Marais it stroke me how beautiful the city is, I had forgotten about the Parisians buildings and how charming the city is. Funny how sometimes you need a bit of distance in able to see things clearly again.
My visit didn't get any worse when I meet up with friends for dinner and breakfast and that I managed to squeeze in a visit to one of my favorite shop Merci, see picture above. I would really recommend this store if you are into design, my favorite department is the interior design floor. Oh, la la as you would say in France. If you interested in visiting the store but can't go to Paris check out their online store HERE
I must also fill in that it was nice by Thursday night to come home to London and my life here, home is where your heart is. But I will always have Paris...
