Paris in Polaroids

 The Parisians seem to have it figured out when it comes to enjoying life. They live true to the words, "Time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted time." They sit at cafes for hours on end, with nothing but an espresso in front of them. They have absolutely no where to be, nothing to rush, they just sit and soak up the spring. So in spirit of the French, we did a lot of that. We contemplated heading to Mont St. Michel and even catching a plane to Rome but chose to soak up the city and live like a Parisian instead.

Taking it slow was a new experience for me, since I had only been to Europe once before on study abroad, which was such a go go go experience.  This time around, I loved getting friend's suggestions and also our Luxe guide helped a ton. Its not your typical lonely planet, its sassy and forward and takes you off the beaten track. I also used Luxe when I was in Bangkok, and was obsessed with all the local spots it suggested.

 Got to steal my sis away from her study abroad for a night.





Poilane Bakery- where Julia Child learned her skills

Chateaux de Loire 
Berthillion Ice cream- simply the best!




There is nothing better to me than exploring a beautiful place with people I love.  We got to hang out with Noelle and Matt, our British couple crush.  Thanks to Noelle for showing us the best eats, not to mention where Posh and Beckham dine.  I loved our long dinners with great conversation, one of my favorite things to do when traveling.  Joel and I were brainstorming all the way home how we could manage getting out of work and extending our vacay over to London. Another trip, another adventure. As for Paris, je t'amie!
