Paris – Day One


We interrupt your regularly scheduled blogging to bring you a brief photo journal of my adventures In Paris, France!  I’ll be uploading the day’s sights each night, so you can see what I’ve seen (and probably eaten) almost as soon as it happens.  Don’t worry, this will be for less than a week, and then there be recipes, crafts, and reviews galore just like usual again.

It’s been over a year since my last real getaway, so I couldn’t be more thrilled to have dropped anchor in France even for this very short period of time. Instead of leaving the blog dead silent in my absence, however, I thought it might be fun to post photos from the previous day until I return home.  Enjoy the ride- I know I will!

Unless urgent, emails will be put on hold for the duration of this trip, but will be answered as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!

This first day was a short, exhausting, and somewhat hectic, albeit completely enjoyable one, so I don’t have so many photos to share… But from here on in, expect to see much, much more.

  5. I wish I could go to Paris! I can’t even imagine how spectacular it is in real life!
    Hopefully someday I can go and enjoy the beautiful sights you have captured with your camera =)

    I can’t wait to hear more!

  16. oh you’re in Paris, it’s great!
    I could make you a guided tour and take you in a restaurant vegan :)
    Of course, Paris is different from where you live, there is nothing to eat here is sad!
    Without making the pub, you should look on, there are the addresses of vegetarian restaurant and shops where you can buy vegan :)

  21. France is where my heart is. NO JOKE!! I’m so glad you’re there! Isn’t it wonderful!
    I was there for New Years this year! haha! I’m planning just to lie down and die in the streets of Paris… but if that doesn’t work I’ll just live there!
    Your photos are amazing!
    Oh and share in your vegan finds!

  22. Ice cream! Where on earth did you find vegan ice cream in Paris?! I’d love to know for my next trip back. Thanks! And enjoy!

  23. Hooray! I’m so happy for you to be visiting Paris.

    If you have time, I highly suggest going to Ile St. Louis near Notre Dame. There are some cute little shops there. There is one boutique in particular that sells that most beautiful world scarves and jewelry. It will be easy to find.

    If you like tea, Mariage Brothers is amazing.

    I look forward to reading more! Safe travels, Hannah.

  27. Aah- paris looks so exciting! I really want to visit someday!

  28. it will take me where you eat your ice, because I seek a place for a long time! So it is a rare info and I drool at this superb chocolate ice cream.

    Please, tell me where to go eat.

    Coming from a Parisian, that is pretty funny is not it?

  29. Lovely! I love Paris so much, I have it tattooed on my arm. I got engaged there!

  38. How in the world did you do Paris with vegan restrictions? I’m going to have to research this!

    • Hey Kathy, I know your post was ages ago but being a vegan in Paris is easy peasy. When we went we didn’t plan too much but we filled up on couscous ready meals from the local supermarkets, vanilla soy milk, maoz falafel, seitan from the (now sadly changed ownership) Victoire Supreme Du Coeur (they still sell the seitan..along with foie gras!), fresh baguettes from the bakery, ethiopian food..okay now I’m getting hungry.

  39. Lucky you! The chocolate (?) gelato / ice cream looks wonderful in the waffle cone. And the hand model has a great manicure btw! :)

  40. Hi!
    Just to tell you that on July 18th 2009 Paris’ first and only vegan b&b with open to the public dinners and brunches opened. We open our cooking classes in December and hope to invite a maximum of cookbook authors to share in on the fun!
    Next time you are in Paris – come try some vegan croissant!
