Valentine’s Day in Paris

A red eye flight out of NYC on a Friday night put me in Paris (he had gone ahead of me) on a Saturday morning. After catching a cab to Hotel Banke, I met him in the lobby, tired but ready to explore! After a quick nap, we were off to an adventure packed weekend! We explored as much as we could by foot, looking at the architecture and unique streets. We ended up dining in one night and ate at a romantic duck restaurant (at least that’s what he thought) the next night!

Drove back towards the hotel and walked around Champs de Elysees… and if you look hard enough, you can spot the Eiffel Tower in the far right corner!
