Meeesh in Paris – Day 7

Today, we walked close to 10km but we didn’t even realize how far we actually were until we looked at our map. This is why all Parisians are so skinny!

LUXEMBOURG GARDEN

This is a beautiful garden with rows of manicured trees and paths surrounding the castle of Luxembourg. It has tennis courts, playgrounds and even a puppet theater for kids.

ST-SULPICE

The main reason to visit this church was to find the Arago Line (from The Da Vinci Code, the Roseline). I looked everywhere (I was allowed to) and didn’t find it anywhere only to discover that the line is actually engraved on the floor of the church.

OLIVER’S & CO.

This is a little store with BIG flavours! I won’t lie, I wanted to buy one of everything. They specialize in olive oils and balsamic vinegars infused with different flavours, gourmet spreads and compotes. The guy working there allowed me to taste everything, making my purchasing decisions much harder since everything was delicious! I cannot wait to start cooking with the product I’m bringing home with me. This may give me a reason to come back to Paris when I run out… Think the husband will buy it as an excuse?! Lol

THE GREAT CANADIAN PUB

I know what you’re all thinking – why on earth would I want to go to a Canadian pub when I’m in Paris?!? Well, after being here for 7 days, drinking lots of wine, and eating all this Persian food, call me home sick but I’m craving a Ceasar (Easy tabasco, heavy on the Worcestershire sauce). I won’t lie when I loved waking in to the door handles being hockey sticks, country music playing on the speakers and their fabulous choice of flag behind the bar! It was nice to feel “at home” for an hour.

GALERIE LAFAYETTE

This is a beautiful store, also a very expensive store with all your top designers.

RANDOMS BUT GOODIES

I did get to be your typical tourist when we walked by the Louvre, I just couldn’t resist…

What happens went I’m told “I don’t want a solder in the picture, do something interesting!”

Tomorrow will be time for us to go home. As much fun as I had exploring the history, culture and food of Paris, I’m can’t wait to get back home. Thank you Paris, we will see you soon enough!
