Paris de nouveau: Montmatre

Another amazing weekend trip where, again, I was spoiled with fabulous weather, the best company and amazing food and wine.
I took the TGV on a thursday evening after work to arrive at Gare de l`Est by 9 pm and reached Axelle and Pierre's apartment just in time for a typical French dinner, complete with a cheese plate and tarte aux framboises, my absolute favorite. I immediately knew why I love France and the French so much. The next morning, I eventually met la petite Louise and we went on a stroll along the canals. Axelle and me had some coffee in the sun while Louise watched us attentively.
It has been two years since I've seen her the last time on her wedding day, so I am extra happy that I got to see her and her beautiful daughter now in Paris. It feels kind of special to witness those big milestones in her life, I cannot believe that it was almost five years ago that we have been roommates in Cours Xavier Arnozan in Bordeaux. Naturally, there was a lot to catch up on.

Around lunch time I took off to Montmartre in beautiful sunshine, waiting for my other amazing friend from Bordeaux, Amélie, to arrive. While waiting, I was amazed by the beautiful afternoon light on Montmatre so I might have taken a few too many pictures. So if you'd like to see....
