Brrrrr! Paris in February is chilly.
Regardless I have a long weekend off from volleyball back in Germany and I plan to make the most of my time.
My first day. I dropped my bag took a quick shower and bundled up headed to a local cafe to grab some french bread and a coffee sitting and plotting my excursion. Then after a power charge I walked the through the streets until I reached the Louvre. OH! The Louvre? So touristy I know I know.
Does it make it not so touristy if you go with a Parisian. Yup, I went with a local. I met up with a friend that I had previously met back six months ago when I was touring Italy for a volleyball contract.
I kept in touch and then arranged to meet up and see both the tourist and local spots. Tonight we’ll grab some local eats and a coffee an walk around. Then tomorrow, parks, street fairs, wandering back door bookstores, small mom a pop cafes, meet some french people, relax in the park then watch sun set at the Eiffel Tower and go up to the top at night. Yup.
