au revoir paris, à la prochaine


well, c’est tout! 3 weeks and a lifetime of experiences.


this last day was filled with a wild cast of characters with just about every personality imaginable. it was a long road and a trip i won’t soon forget.


now it’s off to bed, i’ve had my fill of pretty things and will leave tomorrow with a new outlook. next time i come to paris i’ll be sure to make time to savor the treasures of this wonderland.


i can’t really get into it now cause i have to pack but i’ll share my thoughts on it all soon.


right now i have a slight sense of ennui tonight so will bid you adieu.

    I can imagine how the trip enriched your life– your pictures alone enriched mine– and how leaving is bittersweet. It’s amazing how a place can transform our very souls.
    Best, Nadine

    Dear Claudia:

    Your blog has inspired me to finally take my first trip to Paris. My charming Montmartre rental apartment was also found courtesy of your blog through Haven in Paris. Clignancourt will be my first stop. Was the photo of the table of adorable figurines taken at one the stalls there?
