Summer, in Paris. It's a hot destination any time of year. Like its districts, Paris takes on a different personas and moods each season, day and night.
What springs to mind when you think 'Paris'? Ambling down narrow cobbled laneways, arm in arm with your better half, gazing at store fronts, in awe of what surrounds you; stopping to grab a hand made pastry and cafe.
Navy and white stripes, berets and bikes. Bikes with woven baskets, filled with bread sticks, cheese, chocolate and red wine, in the sunshine...how divine.
An evening stroll along the Seine. Hopping on a river barge...sitting back, soaking it all in. The city of lights at night...magical.
So many things to see, do and just...be. Making memories that will last a lifetime.
Okay so...let's go!
