Paris


Paris was lovely, just the tonic we needed, we strolled around, chatted, laughed, ate some reasonable food and drank some yummy red wine.

And then it rained all Sunday...

Sounds like you had a fabulous time; sorry it rained tho.

It totally poured with thunder and lightening one day when we were in Italy too!

The delights of summer weather :) Although it would have been far more exciting had we had thunder and lightning, instead just constant, perpetual rain... Ah well, you win some you lose some!

and then you brought out the cute umbrellas :)

I remember Paris as gray and cold and a little rainy and unfriendly but maybe that's because it was march. I have to give it another try someday.

Did the rain mean you had a lovely excuse to stay inside be it - gallery, shop or cafe? Oh I love Paris... lucky you for being there this weekend.

Krista said...

I love Paris, too! And rain in Paris ... well, that's just as common as rain in London. So I hope you embraced the cafe or museum or whatever indoor scene you could :)

Oh glad you had one day of strolling outside with vin rouge.

The rain in Paris just makes it more romantic!

@Krystal - Or my hotel did... I lost mine on the way there!

@Julia - It is unfriendly... And it was cold and grey! I would recommend Italian cities above Paris any day :)

@Brazen - Worth a visit for sure, one day.

@Joan - We did just hide in a restaurant and bar, a superb excuse.

@Krista - We sure did.

@My spare thoughts - me too!

@Anna - Yes, it would do if your feet aren't sodden. But then when you get home it's kind of romantic to cuddle up to get warm :)
