Paris in Autumn

I've had a bit of a blogcation recently, this is due to several reasons but one of the nicest reasons I have been absent was a, very much longed for, trip to Paris!

A few months back my friend Jo and I finally decided that after years of wanting to visit we would book a trip for us to spend some girlie time enjoying the museums and attractions...

...We walked absolutely everywhere but we got to see so much of Paris and wander up & down streets we probably wouldn't have found otherwise, so it was well worth the muscle ache!

We tried to do as much as possible in the 3 days we were there; the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay (which I loved), Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, Jardin du Palais Royal, the Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde, some shopping along the Champs-Elysees & finally on our last day we spent a morning exploring the famous cemetery, Pere Lachaise.

I must admit I was very anxious about leaving the little ones, even though I knew they would be (and were) well looked after by their dad and his family. But I do believe in taking time out for yourself; even though it's normally on a much smaller scale than a weekend in Paris, in my case this usually means escaping into a hot bath with a book after demanding absolutely no-one is to enter!

Anyway, here are some of my favourite photos from my weekend away...

Paris

Paris1

I loved these Gargoyles over-looking the City from the towers of Notre-Dame.

Paris2

One of these looked a little bored, but I don't think you could ever get bored of this view...

I also loved all these padlocks attached to bridges along the River Seine ♥

Paris5

The Louvre - I was completely overwhelmed by the size of it, there was just so much to see you could easily spend a whole day there.

Paris8

I insisted on a trip to Laduree for Macaroons (sadly the tea rooms were closed), I liked them especially the chocolate ones!

Pere-Lachaise - One of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever visited, we sought out the resting places of Oscar Wilde, Edith Piath, Chopin & Jim Morrison.

There's no doubting that Paris is beautiful in the Autumn.

I'm working on lots of crochet projects at the moment for our Christmas fete so I'll share some photos soon.

Bye for now. Em xx

    What lovely photographs! I went to laduree in London, the Macarons are to die for! It's a shame the tea room was closed as the camomile is like nothing I've ever tasted.

    Aurevoir!

    Beautiful photos Em - I've been to Paris once, when I was 11, so a heck of a long time ago, but would love to go back one day. Glad you had a great time x
