9-Watching football with the best football fans

8-Walking the Labyrinth in Chartres

7-Seeing Paris on Bastille Day and participating in the festivities

6-Visiting as many gardens as possible

5-Finding a market and making it my own

4-Joining people from all over the world for a Sunday dinner

3-Sitting at a cafe with my pen and paper ready to go

2-Riding a boat down the canal in Brugge after eating fries with mayonnaise

1-Making friends with early morning Paris and my camera

  1. Love your top 10! Number 3 and 5 are two of my favorite things to do in Europe! And Brugge is a dream!!

    1. Thank you! I don’t know why sitting at a cafe is so much better in Europe, but it definitely is.

      1. It totally screams “romantic” 🙂

    Have a great time with your camera…was in France 3 weeks back…Paris is really a wonderful place…look forward to your photos!!

    1. I hope my photos will impress. There is a lot to capture.

  3. I am not sure whether you like cooking at all? But if you do, you should try a short course at THE Le Cordon Bleu (you know from the Julie & Julia movie) … the one and only, original French cooking school!

    1. I love to cook. I will have to look into it. I’m definitely trying to do Paris on a budget, so I’ll have to see what the prices are. Do you know? Thanks for the advice!

      1. It is not cheap for sure (full day course around 200€), but you get to keep whatever you cook and have lunch there, so you safe money on two meals 🙂

        Here’s a link to their online registration:
        Bon voyage!

    Don’t miss the firework display at Eiffel Tower on the Bastille Day! 🙂

    1. I will definitely be there. I left Paris last year on Bastille day, and I was so mad I missed it. I made sure that I’d be here for it this year.

    That looks like a great list, and I hope you get to do them all 🙂 Have a wonderful summer in Paris!

    1. Thank you! I will do my best to explore and share!

    I love this photo of the gargoyle (on Notre Dame?) and have to ask what effects you use on some of your images – HDR? They have such a clarity but softness about them. Just wondering…

    1. I use HDR on some of my photos. Some love it, some hate it. I’m one that loves it.
