This page promises some photography and food—and my favorite, photography of food. And using some sketchy logic, I figure there’s no better place to find some really pretty (and tasty) food than Paris, France! My family recently traveled there for a week, and this post will detail my travels. Don’t worry, it’s not just about food. Paris also has some great historical sights, and, of course, beautiful architecture!
Day 1 – Arrival
We arrived in Paris around midday, and I was eager to see some of the more famous sights of the city. We walked along the Seine river and saw a glimpse of Notre Dame, which celebrated its 850th birthday in 2013. The church was originally built in the 1163. Its full name is Notre Dame de Paris, which is French for “Our Lady of Paris”. Sadly, it suffered from a fire in April this past year, and from the street I could see some scaffolding over the parts of the building lost to the fire.
To make up for all those calories burnt by walking, I treated myself to some Berthillon sorbet. Berthillon is a famous glacé (literally, “ice”, but meaning “ice cream”) shop famous for its naturally derived flavors (i.e., lavender, chestnut, and myrtle—a far cry from Baskin Robbins). I ordered a scoop of peach sorbet. Yum!
Stay tuned. I’ll post the details about each day in a separate post.
