When the sun is up early, and I find the energy, it’s nice to wander off to a different neighborhood for a stroll. These pictures were taken on one of my favorite yet trendiest streets, rue des Martyrs.
I think about what I would do if I was just visiting Paris one summer for only a few days – for my very first time. I would certainly hope that someone would have told me to just get up and walk around the weekend mornings…. to just get lost and admire the beautiful buildings and storefronts… to wander through little markets and brocantes filled with treasures, maybe grab a random croissant. I’d sit at a corner café, nothing fancy (although I like those, too), and sip an espresso while people watching.
Happy weekend, friends.
