Place Vendome: home to the Ritz and numerous exlusive jewelers. Designed by the architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart in 1698 to house embassies, it was soon taken over by bankers creating their own homes. Who could blame them?
My first moment in Paris was so special but admittedly uber touristy. I popped up out of the metro right on the Seine across from Notre Dame. THAT was my first impression of Paris (ok and since I was alone at 7am maybe I did a little dance right there)! Who could ask for a better memory? Throughout the trip, this lovely river was our pathway around the city.
Planning for my current vacation has had me thinking of my last vacation with Heather to Paris. So for the week, I'll be sharing some of my favorite views of the city with you. It's the vacation that keeps on giving!
