With a beautiful sleep, we awoke to a stunning breakfast in bed. It was everything you could imagine when you think of Paris: pain du chocolate, croissant, café.
We enjoyed the breakfast half in bed and half on our adorable balcony then headed out to finish our final day in Paris!
Strolling through our neighborhood, by Notre Dame, through the latin quarter, and onwards, we enjoyed the scenic views and dreamed that our trip would never end.
Being it was our final day, we of course had to visit the Iron Lady, with her strong base and flashy looks.
It was the perfect place for us to enjoy a bottle of champagne and to toast to how perfect our trip has been.
We spent some time further exploring the city, and hoping for a hot air balloon ride. However, we were disappointed with the fact that a hot air balloon ride entailed solely going up and down, stationary.
We abandoned the idea, and instead dipped our feet in the little water park, where all the kiddos were running around crazy.
Doing our research and planning for a fantastic dinner on our last night, we headed back to our neighborhood to a restaurant called Les Bourgresses. It has a deliciously sounding set menu and fantastic reviews so we jumped at the opportunity to try it out.
To start with, we each had an appetizer. Daniel ordered the fish tartar and I ordered the baked cheese bread on a salad.
For our mains, Daniel had the steak in foie gras and I had the sea bass.
We ended with two amazing desserts: creme brûlée and an apple type crumble (only way better!).
Strolling back home, we stopped to grab some drinks to toast to our final night in Paris. The beautiful scenery made our evening that much better.
We’ve been to Paris now twice in just over a year, and it really is a special city. Perhaps the nickname the city of love is an understatement. There’s no way you can’t fall in love with this place and everything it has to offer. But, if you can’t fall in love with the city, then you can at least fall more in love with the person you’re with!
