Fridays are great, Saturdays are amazing, but I have to say Sundays are my favorite!
What is your favorite day??
The song, Easy Like Sunday Morning plays in my head every Sunday morning while I am chilling around the house with my husband. There is something simple and relaxing about Sundays. Ya know?
It’s a new weekend, but I am still thinking about last Sunday and I want to share my ideal Sunday in Paris!
Jason had an away game, so I decided to go explore, I hopped on the Metro with plans of visiting Saint Chapelle (Holy Chapel). Well, as soon as I got off the Metro, I got sidetracked by an outdoor market (they get me every time).
Later, I realized I was at Marche aux fleurs – Ile de la Cite (flower market). Sunday is the day to go because they have exotic birds for sale (every color of the rainbow)!
After I explored all of the colorful stalls and shops at the market, I made it to Saint Chapelle and I see a sign at the entry, ferme (closed). So, I decided to find a Café, and visit Sainte Chapelle another day (no worries on a Sunday in Paris).
I found a Café with a window seat overlooking a busy street and the Seine River (perfect spot to people watch). I ordered onion soup and a nice glass of French vin rouge (red wine).
After a light lunch, I wandered up and down random streets.
Eventually, I made it to the Latin Quarter of Paris.
After strolling a few miles, it was dinner time. I found a spot that felt welcoming and decided to try it out.
I had the moules et frites (mussels and fries), which is very popular in France, Belgium, and Northern Europe.
I’ve had better mussels (to be honest). I am still on the hunt for better moules et frites in Paris, I know their out there.
After dinner, the sun was setting, and it was a busy night in the Latin Quarter. Cafés were packed, tourists were getting their sunset shots of The Seine river, and restaurant owners were trying to woo guests in their doors (this only happens in the touristy areas). You can find a variety of food options in this district.
I made my way back to the metro to head home. Sundays are made to cruise, and I am looking forward to my next Sunday in the City!
