We arrived at the Paris Beauvais airport about 9 o’clock this morning. After a long bus ride and a ride in a taxi we arrived at our Hotel by 11:00. Our room is small, a little too small. I already have a bruise on my knee from banging it on the bathroom sink. Hopefully we don’t kill ourselves just trying to shower.
For lunch we headed out to the street and were overwhelmed with all our options. There are hundreds of cafes, brasseries, gelato shops, street vendors selling amazing looking sandwiches and more cafes.
I chose the restaurant that had the Nicoise salad on their menu. The first time I was in Paris these salads were my favorite thing to eat. I recreated it at home many times after that trip but it never tasted the same.
You know what else is exciting? Look at what is right around the corner from our hotel…
Eating a macaron from this shop in Paris was on my bucket list. I got the chocolate, check!
Next we hit up Notre -Dame Cathedral, Paris’ most beloved church. Pretty amazing stuff.
After a short sieste, we headed back out into the hustle and bustle of the Parisian night life. We weren’t up for much more than dinner, what really sounded good was a good nights sleep. We ate dinner at a little restaurant that featured a prix fix menu. That seems to be the way to go for dinner here.
I had the french onion soup, shrimp risotto and ended with creme brûlée. It was all very good. Shane had the french onion soup, beef bourguignon and ended with the apple crisp, he was pleased.
