When Mom and I decided that we wanted to take a trip this year, choosing the destination wasn’t clear cut. Did we want to visit somewhere we had never been before like Scotland, England or San Fransisco, or return to one of our favorite cities, Paris?! Well let’s just say, it didn’t take much convincing on either sides to choose Paris!
My last visit to Paris was 5 years ago. Our 3 week Euro trip was exciting visiting France, Germany, Austria and Italy. That’s when I fell in love with Paris. We were only there for 4 days, but once i got the taste of Parisian life, it was all downhill from there. I have always wanted to go back, not only because 4 days didn’t really leave us much time to really explore the city, but simply because I love it there!
I did some research and came up with a list of things I wanted to see and do. This included the obvious tourist attractions such as the Tour Eiffel, The Louvre and the Notre Dame. But since my love for food and wine has developed since my last trip to Paris, I really wanted to explore the culinary aspect of Parisian lifestyle. I found the oldest kitchen store, which was established in 1824, and a store that specializes in olive oils, balsamic vinegars and much more. We also took a Champagne tour visiting the Mumms and Moët & Chandon wineries which not only explained the process on how to make Champagne, but also gives us a chance to taste this wonderful product.
This was our Paris Adventure!
