i'm back in San Francisco and ready to move forward with new adventures! coming home was a long journey and it left me missing Paris painfully but i'm so happy for the memories and experiences i gained from it, ah Paris! the photos above are of my final days in Paris were i spent a significant amount of time exploring all the little details that i just couldn't miss like visiting the Moulin Rouge, walking through Montmartre, seeing the Sacre Couer, having tea and musing through La Musee de la Vie Romantique where one of my favorite writers George Sand used to visit and write frequently. during the weekend i strolled through the largest flea market in the world of Les Puces and found some vintage French stamps, bowls, and books. i also had the pleasure of experiencing some of the greatest creperies in Montparnasse. i loved the experience of having one savory crepe & one sweet crepe with a side of cider, so delicious! when i got tired from walking i set up camp along the Seine to soak up the summer sun where Paris Plage was thriving with other sun bathers, children, and picnickers. i also made sure to see the sparkling lights of Mademoiselle Eiffel and kiss her goodbye.
thank you all for being incredibly helpful and supportive while abroad. i know traveling alone is sometimes challenging when one doesn't know a place very well but i always felt like you guys where there with me to guide me through Paris and i'm glad you all enjoyed the journey with me. as we know, this is just be another journey to greater adventures.
