LGRAB aime Paris

Since we’ve been going on about our fall vacation over the last week, here are some scenes from our October trip to the City of Lights. We didn’t bike while we were there—it was just a 48-hour trip—but we walked our feet off. We’d both been to France and Paris before, so our priority this time around was acting like locals. Well, and doing a little photo shoot on the banks of the Seine.




The weather could have been better, but we were just happy to be in Paris. We were also incredibly pleased with our budget hotel, the Hotel Tiquetonne. For just 60 EUR a night, you have this view.

If you look carefully, you might see Sacré Coeur in the background.

And you’re incredibly close to this wonderful restaurant. We had to settle for the wine bar, but it was worth the wait. Afterwards, we shut down the café near our hotel—the perfect Paris night out!

Pretty sure Dottie was taking the photo above when Trisha took this one:

We also made time to stop for an apèro. Or three!


Coffee and crepes on a rainy day.


Shopping at Galeries Lafayette‘s flagship store. We spent our time/money in the food hall, but admired everything else.

A quick stop at the Musée Carnavalet.


That is all.  <3

P.S. see our previous trip to Paris here, plus bicycling Versailles and an American girl(s) on Velib.
