So, I’m home. Very sleepy and with exceptionally achey feet, but having had a wonderful trip to Paris!
My friend Michelle and I popped over from London for three days of sight seeing, photo taking and general wandering. We were super lucky with the weather, (having expected it to rain the whole time) and it was actually gorgeously sunny!
I’ll be posting more about our adventures as soon as I can, but I thought I’d share my Instagram photos from the trip here in the meantime as a little story in pictures…..
These boots were made for walking…… and that’s just what we did…. a lot!
