My Paris posts are somewhat delayed (sorry, I wanted to post them as soon as I got back) but I couldn't let anything, even blogging, get in a way of my Christmas shopping and wrapping as I had to get it all done by yesterday. Reason being that right now I'm writing from the middle of a desert. Well pretty much at least. More about that in a day or two but let me tell you about last Saturday in Paris first.
We got up rather late and by the time we were up and about it was not far from midday! After a couple of shops we were headed to l'Avenue for a fabulous lunch. What a fun place (not one to be taken that seriously though...). Great food (I had a tuna carpaccio followed by salmon, both seriously tasty), great atmosphere and the most amazing people watching. Very bad light for pictures though hence I only have these couple of random shots. And I don't even like oysters!
After lunch boys and girls went their separate ways. You guessed it: girls shopping, boys not.
Not before we had taken a couple of snap shots though! Wide smile is obviously due to my birthday present! Oh and due to being in Paris in an amazing company!
We also had to get a picture of the girls looking rather silly as we all wore the same trousers. What are the chances?
But then off we went along Avenue Montaigne.
We browsed a couple of shops (one of them being Montaigne Market, OMG) but I must say my shopping stamina is not great. Not before long I was very ready to head back to the hotel to sit down and lift my feet up instead.
And so were the girls.
I don't know why on earth I hadn't been to Paris for so long? I totally fell in love with it this time and am not going to wait another five years to visit it again.
Back to the hotel we went.
Tomorrow I still want to give a couple of Paris dinner recommendations but after that we'll move onto a very different kind of place; Oman! Right now I'm going to collapse in bed after pretty much missing a night's sleep. There wasn't much space for me to sleep on the flight after my girls had made themselves comfortable! ;-)
