Last Day Meander in Paris

By Unknown - 9:56 PM

This was my first international trip since coming to the United States 15 years ago.

And Paris did not disappoint. It was nothing short of amazing.

The beauty of Paris is breathtaking & autumn in Paris is just perfect. The crisp cool air rushed in from the street & mingled with the morning freshness. It smelled like pastries & adventures.

And no rain! We were lucky to dodged the rain forecast during our three & a half day stay.
On our last (half) day we wandered through the farmers market...

We stopped by a chocolatier shop & picked up a few small bites for the road.

 And we made our way to the famous little diner, Cremerie Restaurant Polidor, which has been around for 168 years. You might know it from Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, in the scene where Scott Fitzgerald introduces Gil Pender to Ernest Hemingway. Indeed, the Polidor is best known for its illustrious clientele such as James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Antonin Artaud, Jack Kerouac, Andre Gide, & Henry Miller.

Chris ordered a bowl of pumpkin soup, the beef bourguignon & a slice apple pie. Surprisingly I wasn't hungry (that's the first) but I had a bite of everything for taste.

The food is not exactly spectacular per se but the authentic French ambiance dating from 1845 cannot be beat. Note: cash only, they do not accept credit cards.

Afterward, we hopped, skipped & jumped to the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg park located nearby.

This was our last stop in Paris before heading to the airport for Barcelona.
Til next time! au revoir!
