Day Two of Our Paris Adventures

We awoke early the next morning, as we had splashed out and pre-purchased breakfast packages at the hotel (despite warnings of the expense). It turned out to be the best food we had in Paris the entire time we were there! We could enjoy unlimited tea, coffee, fresh juices and an array of the [...]

My first birthday since moving to the United Kingdom was fast approaching and a celebratory weekend in Paris sounded just right!
