And I had my big Learning2 conference happening the week we were back in school, so I didn't feel like I could travel the whole week.
I settled for a long weekend in Paris.
Oh, I know, I lead a horrible life.
My friend Marc and I agreed to meet for the weekend and see the sights of the City of Lights.
Marc and I met way back in 2013 in Cork when we both became Apple Distinguished Educators.
Our first afternoon we just wandered about, enjoying the super blue skies!
We found this oh-so-interesting man floating around outside a church. We actually walked around the block and circled back to sit down and watch him for a bit. He blends in a bit, but see if you can see his outfit near the street light.
Over the Seine.
We stopped in Gerard Mulot and bought some treats. I chose macarons.
What else would you choose while in Paris??
The next day we went to Versailles. I had wanted to rent bikes and just ride around.
So that's what we did.
The following day we strolled the market and a couple different areas of Paris.
We had one final day in Paris so we walked up to the 18th Arrondissement and Montmartre.
We strolled passed Moulin Rouge.
Sacre Coeur- These blue skies didn't last long! We were soon trying to dodge the rain and hail.
There are some nice views of the city from high atop the 18th.
This district of Paris is really quite charming.
Another of the world's most beautiful Starbucks. You can't even see it, but it's on the top level of this beautiful shopping mall.
Marc and I had a great weekend in Paris. I can't wait to go back!
Who wants to come with next time?
