Paris in the Fall
After my trip to Champagne, my boyfriend, Kevin, met me in Paris. The trip coincided with our 1 year anniversary (lol regardless of whether that was planned or unplanned) and it was just the most perfect time to be together in one of my favorite cities ever.
I’ve been to Paris several times before. I fell in love with the city my very first visit, when I attended a month-long summer program in high school to learn French. I made it a point thereafter to try and visit Paris at any opportunity and it’s still a lifelong goal of mine to live there, even if for just a short stint. It was Kevin’s first time in the city so the trip was equal parts us chasing the best restaurants and natural wine bars as well playing tourist.
The weather in October was unusual for Paris, even the Parisians agreed! It felt like a late summer. Days were seriously warm and nights were mild. Something to keep in mind for anyone planning their next visit to Paris… See where we stayed, where we ate, the things we saw and the shenanigans we were up to.
It’s not surprising that Paris has one of the most dynamic and iconic food scenes you can find. The current state of the Parisian food scene is a mix of old French roots and international influences. Basically, there’s something for everyone here. After a week of eating classic French food on my trip to Champagne, I was so excited to delve into new wave French food and even non-French food as well, because if I’m being honest with you, French food doesn’t sit too well with me after a while.
