The fashion capital of the world… Not the best place to honeymoon when your bag is been lost.
I had planned and planned outfits for our honeymoon and packed meticulously, especially for Paris.
Most people know that shorts, are not kosher, and as luck would have it, my only clean option was shorts.
Nav and I had a really wonderful time despite the fact we didn’t have the right, or clean, clothes.
Our first evening in, we checked into our AirBnB… The cutest little apartment near Place de Cilchy.
After we had cleaned up and checked in, it was time for our first French meal.
Steak and Fries with Rosé sounded about right.
Exhausted and full, we went to bed early, only to wake up a fewhours later at 4 am.
Since we were up, and jet lag had won, we decided to try and catch the sunrise- and what better place than Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre? Situated at the top of the city, it seemed to be the place.
At one point Nav hit a huge bump and our camera went flying out of his bike’s basket, and somehow Nav managed to snatch it out of the air while flying down the street. What a relief!
Once we arrived to the river, we passed the Notre Dame, and headed west towards the Louvre and Musé de Orsay. Since it was a Monday they were not open.
However a bakery nearby was!
We rode our bikes all the way down the river, and saw the Eiffel Tower
Next on our to do list was buy some clothes as we both had only one outfit. Shops opened at 10 so we killed some time walking around the city.
We had no regrets.
Once we managed to wake up, we were ravenous! Back on our bikes, we rode down to Galaries Lafayette, a gorgeous department store near the Opera.
We strolled through the city at golden hour, headed towards Le Marais for dinner.
We passed on dessert, because I had some macaroons for later…
