Trip Report Another Paris Trip Report

It was only 7 months between visits to Paris but the time was right; we're getting a puppy in November and after that won't be traveling for awhile. The Paris addiction was pulling at us and it only takes the question, "would you like to go to Paris this fall?" to be off planning and clicking the mouse on buy tickets.

We did splurge a bit on the airfare, but it was worth it. We flew on Air France from BOS direct. We paid a little extra to sit upstairs on the 747 and selected the exit row. I would do it all over again given the opportunity. We started our meal service with champagne, of course and from there red wine. The meal was ok and actually satisfying. I am so unused to having food served on an airplane it was just like the "good old days". I didn't even watch any of the video, although they had a great selection. I just dozed on and off and before we knew it we were there at CDG. We flew near to the city and could see the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur. I don't recall flying in to CDG and seeing that before; it's usually fields and farms and little towns. It was raining when we left Boston and sunny when we landed in Paris. It very often is the other way around.

We stayed in an apartment on Blvd. Richard Lenoir that we had already stayed in two Octobers ago. We loved it for the big windows overlooking the street and the twice weekly market. It was also very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. Here's the link to the apartment.

Here's a link to some of the photos that we took. I tend to not take too many photos anymore as I like to enjoy being there and not worry about pictures, but of course I enjoy them when I return.
