While I wouldn’t recommend traveling in Europe in February, I couldn’t resist going to Paris to visit a friend this past weekend. We got fairly lucky with the weather the first few days (I mean really lucky – it rained while we were inside and once we needed to walk somewhere, it was sunny), but unfortunately, the last day included a lot of snow/slush/rain. On the last day we slept in and had a lovely brunch where they served the usual (for Canada) bacon and eggs, the usual (for France) croissants, pain au chocolat, and then an unusual mix of salmon, herring, beef bourguignon, lentil salads and brownies. I pretty much progressed from breakfast to lunch to dinner in a span of a few hours.
Anyway, while the last day didn’t involve any picture-taking, the first few days were full of good shots (and I was fortunate to have my very patient friend indulge my hobby). So here are a few photos from my walk in Paris.
… and now I’m beginning to mixup when we saw what, so here’s a photo of the Montparnasse tower.
