Travels: Cannes, France

A romantic meal on the rocks watching the sunset….not only the only guy walking with a case, but the only guy in a coat ;)….market made brunch….deckchairs and parasols….bliss on the beach….boats, glorious boats….the sun is setting in the sky….the art deco lobby of the Grand Hyatt Hotel Martinez….the MOST incredible firework display you have ever seen….

And that’s what Cannes has been for us!

Travels: Paris, France

image

The musee d’orsay (well worth a visit if you are into your impressionist painters)….snowy days from the Eurostar….how to kill a rat….the Venus de Milo at the Louvre….trying to be awake with the boy at stupid am…..an overflowing Seine….St Pancras station….it wouldn’t be a trip to France without a pain au chocolate…..getting around on the world’s most confusing metro line….

We’ve spent the past couple of days in Paris which has been lovely. We stayed at the Secret De Paris hotel which I would definitely book again. The trip was my Christmas present to the boyfriend as he’d never been to the Louvre, so we’ve had a crazy couple of days packed with art, culture, sightseeing and walking. Highlights have included: taking him round the Louvre; seeing Monet, Manet, Renoir and Cezanne at the Musee D’Orsay; a mini picnic at Notre Dame and an amazing extravagant meal at Le Bouche dans Le Bois. I do love Paris, such a pretty city.

I’m going to post again soon with some of my key monument snaps from my phone (see here).

What do you love about Paris?
