First Week in Paris



We arrived in Paris last Monday, after 24 hours of flight time plus 3 hours stopover in Hong Kong,
feeling somewhat worse for wear but so excited to finally fulfill a dream of living for a month in
this beautiful city.



From our charming, be it tiny apartment, we have spent our days simply wandering and discovering
the many sights , Sacre Couer above just one of many.




Rediscovering the enthusiasm for travel that I have not experienced for a long time seems to have
awakened something inside me that I feared I had lost and I know will continue long after I return home.Relearning a language , not used since high school , and finding just how much you can still read and speak, even if rather badly ,is a skill I plan to continue.


Taken in the spectacular Luxembourg Gardens , in between the rain showers. I am wearing a cropped
leather jacket from Caroline Moore ,a Paula Ryan black and white top, black Moyuru pants.

This is very much posted on the fly using my husbands laptop that is new to me so apologies for any
errors or lack of quality.
