Au Revoir, Paris

Jeremy and I are packing up our bags once again, and getting this apartment we’ve been housesitting ready for the owners to come back tomorrow morning. Being in Paris for five weeks has been really great, especially the fact that we’ve remained in one place for so long. As much as I enjoy traveling, it does make me excited about having our own apartment again soon and staying put for a little while (I’m also still trying really hard to find stuff to look forward to instead of being sad our trip is almost over). I took sooo many pictures (obviously) and I haven’t posted a bunch of them, so I figured I’d do that here, in no particular order.

Like I said, I love these buildings.

I'm going to miss having this park in running distance.

Our last meal out in Paris. Of course it had to be cheese.

We also had to get one last Nutella crepe, even though it was raining.

We walked through Montmartre and I brought my nice camera out finally:

We walked by the Hotel de Ville one night, which usually looks like this:

but this night there was a big celebration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Paris during World War II. Not sure if this video will portray it well, but it was really cool.

 

I will miss you Paris!

    1. Not at all! My husband and I saved up for a long time, and we have been able to do some work remotely for our employers back home. Also, we housesat in Europe five times (we were housesitting in Paris for five weeks), and we’re going home next week but if we wanted to stay longer, we would have started working on an organic farm called Wwoofing (www.wwoof.net) or tried to get something on http://www.workaway.info. There are lots of resources out there to make travel fairly inexpensive (after airfare). Paris is such a magical city!
