The subtitle of the last three blog posts, the 100 mile journey, should be a clue that the 37 miles we walked in Paris brought our total for nine days to 100 miles!
Emerging from the train station to bright sunshine, we walked to our hotel.
We saw three different brides having photos taken at various scenic locations.
This bride had sneakers on and moved effortlessly through the crowds.
A rain storm moved in quickly, soaking this bride at the Eiffel Tower.
On our first afternoon, we walked to Rue Cler and enjoyed the market scene and lunch.
Everyday started with some amazing bread product and coffee
and usually included at least one sidewalk cafe for people watching.
Our one museum visit was to the Musee Marmottan Monet, a self-described beacon in the field of Impressionism. It was the perfect size museum, housed in a former hunting lodge in a quiet residential neighborhood.
We stayed at the Hotel Beauborg in the Marais district so we explored the area by following Rick Steves walking tour and visiting the Marches aux Enfants Rouge, the oldest covered market in Paris. Even the radishes look fabulous!
Everything we ate was delicious but some standouts were falafels at L’As du Fallafel, olive bread from Eric Kayser and dinner at L’Acanthe.
And then it was time to go home — 3 cities, 9 days and 100 miles later!
