Paris by day

The Other Lauren and I have been friends for 10 years and traditions have developed over time: Eating pots of raspberry and orange jelly together, her making me eggs in the morning when I spend the night on the (very comfy) sofa and talking about going to Paris. Every Hogmanay we say, "This will be the year!" but life gets in the way.

Ten years seemed long enough to me and having both been to the City of Love with dreadful ex boyfriends, it was time to wipe the slate clean and create new memories. Having both been before (this was my third visit), we'd been up the Eiffel Tower and queued for the Mona Lisa. This trip was about reading, wandering and eating. An actual break.

No itinerary, no recommendations, just a few snapshots.
