a paris weekend: part one…
Posted in Uncategorized August 12th, 2009 by pia

Last week I mentioned that I’d like to share with you some brief notes about what I got up to while in Paris the other weekend. I realise I possibly don’t do this enough here, and one of the reasons is because I was writing a book about Paris and had to keep all the good stuff secret! Now I don’t have to keep it all to myself. So the next few posts will be brief accounts of what I enjoyed each day on the last trip. These posts might make nice little additions to the Paris wanders you go on, make sure you follow the links for all the locations and info.

Saturday: arrived in Paris at 7pm. Moments enjoyed…


  • discovering a hidden away boutique wine cave (cellar), perusing their vast selection of well-priced French wines and enjoying a spontaneous degustation there before dinner.
  • following the thunderous and incredibly empowering rhythm of the african drum buskers in the chatelet metro before jumping on the RER.
  • an apĂ©ro with friends in their tranquil Paris garden under the night sky.
