Last Day in Paris - Doors of Europe
Our last day in Paris we stopped for one last time at the cafe across from our hotel. That day our barista was none other than the late, great Kurt Cobain.
Then we slipped over to a little crepe stand and ate until we were stuffed.
The remainder of the afternoon was spent roaming the streets of Le Marais and the beautiful shops, boutiques and cafes. I never knew how madly in love I was with doorways, entrances and thresholds until that day.
Seriously, I have the most intense door envy! We ended up popping into a cafe and getting a spot of tea.
We had to stop by Chanel, of course.
Afterwards we decided to walk over to Notre Dame just to experience it.
On our way strolling around we swung by a spot I was dying to check out - Shakespeare & Co bookstore. Unfortunately there was a line, I was cold and have no patience and so I didn't go in. But I plan on checking it out next week when I'm there and hopefully sipping some espresso while reading a book outside! (insert hardcore swoon right about here)
We roamed the streets and a small park adjacent to Notre Dame and a little touristy strip full of bars, restaurants and men shouting "Shakira! Beyonce!" at us. After a short metro ride we arrived at the catacombs but once again a line around the building, the cold and now pouring rain deterred us.
We ended up back at our hotel and had dinner at a sweet little place called Blue Valentine where the chefs Pre-fixe menu was as delectable as the group of french men celebrating a birthday at the table next to us who sent us champagne and asked us to drink with them.
And just like that our Paris adventure ended. It was a beautiful week in a magical city and I'm SO pumped to be back there when I wake up!
