paris is calling...

a few weekends ago paris was beckoning so kurt and i took a few days off worked, whisked mum and dad from there wee spot in chelsea and caught the eurostar to the city of love. after finding a charming apartment in st germain des pres on airbnb we set about our weekend. 

the task i had at hand was not only to change my parents mind set on paris (they had a few bad experiences in the past) as well as showing kurt a grand first time. we arrived in the stifling hot and went to pick up our gorgeous and gourmet lunch, a paris picnic, and chose a spot in the shade of the eiffle tower. we read, slept and drank wine all the while eating baguettes and the most amazing cheeses. 

while the tone of the weekend was very much cruisey, we still managed to fit in a bit of sightseeing, in the form of a fat tire bike tour, as well as meandering the streets and seeing where we ended up. we eat, drank and had a wonderful weekend. it was a welcome reprieve from the cold and busy life we are currently leading in busy ol' southampton. 

note. more photos to come - i don't have great internet here so bear with me...
