In February I went to Paris for the sixth time. Every time I go back, I see something new, and many things I’ve seen before. Every time I go back, I relax a little. I know I’ve seen what really needs to be seen, and I know I’ll be back if I miss anything.
This was the first time I’d been to stay in a nice hotel. Wow, does that change the view! We were at the beautiful Hotel D’Aubusson on the Rue Dauphine, a short jaunt from the Pont Neuf and the Seine. We spent two and a half days wandering the back streets of the city, snapping photos of old sights at angles we’d missed before, drinking wine and eating cheese.
There are amazing charcuterie and cheese boards to be had at Les Antiquaires on Rue du Bac, perfect lazy lunches at Fuxia and Cafe de Paris, and indulgent fondue and Raclette at Pain, Vin, Fromages on Rue Geoffroy-l’Angevin.
