Paris Snapshots

As the Eurostar pulled out of St Pancras station on Friday morning I couldn't help but feel excited. As excited as someone who's woken up at 5am and hasn't yet had any caffeine can be. This was my sixth trip to Paris so I know that it's a ridiculously expensive, tourist packed city that four visits out of five so far has poured with rain and yet... who cares, it's Paris! My friend C lives and works in the city so with the promise of lots of catching up and absolutely no visits to the Eiffel Tower I waved au revoir to London...

Flowers in St Pancras Station
Eurostar essentials. Read Fight Club on my Kindle because context inappropriate reads are my favourite.
Lunch o'clock.
Saturday morning poured with rain. I went for a run and happily dodged tourists while not caring about being wet.
This seems to have got a bit out of hand.
BRB just charging my car. How the future looked in 1990.
The tip of Ile-de-France is my favourite place in Paris.
Notre Dame sans hunchback.
Ran back along the Seine conjugating French verbs as I went. Je cours, tu cours, il court, nous courons...
The only place to be quand il pleut des cordes...
The view from the roof of Printemps
Because you're still a tourist.
Have you been to Paris?
