Bertie Travels Through Paris!

I have to say, I am a lucky gal! The Boss had work this past weekend in Paris and I was beyond excited to be able to travel along with him! Having never been to Paris before, I had many “to-do’s” on my list! And since I am still pretty excited about my trip and I tend to talk a lot when excited, I’ll try to keep the post to pictures and quick comments about what was happening in each picture!

There are lots of photos, so enjoy! (Oh, all of my pictures were taken using Instagram)

1) First there was the whole airplane thing! “All Aboard!”

2) We flew through the night and arrived just in time for breakfast!IMG_2722

(Yes, you read correctly… this was breakfast!)

3) The next day we took the “Velib” (an absolutely amazing bike system through out Paris) to explore town! Needless to say, we had a blast! IMG_2723

4) I don’t think it takes a whole lot of creative thinking to figure out the first stop on my list would have been!IMG_2627IMG_2630

5) Soon after the excitement of the Eiffel Tower, we both found ourselves thinking of the other French delicacies. Macaroons were not hard to find!IMG_2719

Chocolates were also a popular accompaniment!IMG_2632

6) It was at this point, our “Tour de Paris” would have to take recess as The Boss had work to do!IMG_2639

7) The next morning started out with some exercise! We knew we had some eating to do, and we figured would should start the day with a calorie deficit! IMG_2724

8) Soon after, we found THE MOST AMAZING crepes I have ever eaten! Breakfast for day 2 was a massive success! IMG_2650

9) With breakfast under our belts it was back on the bikes for further exploration!IMG_2726

 

10) Look what we found:

My New Favorite BikeIMG_2725

The best apron I have ever seen!IMG_2721

An impromptu concert on the lawn of the Eiffel TowerIMG_2694

And my new favorite gelato!IMG_2728

Finally it was time to get back on the bikes and find dinner. It was getting cooler out and the sun was finally starting to set. Which by the way, the sun doesn’t set here until 9:00- 9:30! This meant we had been out and about all day and according the Boss’s pedometer thing we had walked over 9 miles!! Who knows how far we biked!IMG_2727

Hopefully you enjoyed my tale of travels through Paris. I have more than enjoyed my stay!

Au revoir!
