Oui Paris!

At the end of June, we took a trip to Paris for my birthday! It was full of delicious food, amazing architecture and a butload of stairs! I was going to write up a long post about it, but it was so long ago, and ya'll probably don't want to hear me yammering on.

We ended up going to the Eiffel Tower a whole 3 times. Yep! The first 2 days we went it was closed due to a strike, so on the 3rd day we walked up to the second floor, only to find the ticked booth closed to the top (I'm so scared of heights I wasn't at all upset about this, but Toby was a bit bummed.) We visited the Arch De Triumph and the Champs Elysee, The Catacombs, The Louvre, Notre Dame, The Opera, and Galleries Lafayette and Laduree for macarons. I was super lazy this trip and didn't get my camera out much, so a lot of my favourite photos ended up being instagram photos. I would be sad about that becoming a way of life now, but I really love instagram (hit me up, my username is Klerr).

A bridge of locks near Notre Dame. We definitely put another one on there!

Got Maccas just to have a beer with it!

The Catacombs are super creepy. So many bones.

Delicious creme brule we shared the night before we left. Other delicious French food we ate and I didn't get a picture of include escargot, duck confit (ie my favourite dish ever), croissants (of both the plain and chocolate variety), macarons, nutella crepes, cheese crepes, mille feuille and steak tartare (when the waiter had to double check that I knew it was raw beef, and was shocked that I was ok with that!)


  1. Wow, that looks incredible! Glad to see that you are having a good time, thanks for the pictures!

  2. Amazing! What a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday! xx
