~*”Dis, quand reviendras-tu ?”

I’ll confess many things in the following post: loves, affinities, state of mind, memories, gluttony and passions…

 

But before I begin, You should know that I can’t stand those who walk and deal with a city with a guidebook in hand … I belong to the category of travelers that are able to let the wind, the sun and all scents of life guide them throughout their trip.

 

To my eyes, in the Spring, Paris is a beautiful embracing city that makes one come back to his senses and understand falling in love with everything and everyone… I won’t go into the juicy details of the city and its alluring heritage or urban infrastructure… And although, this is not the first time I visit Paris, everytime feels like a brand new time in this living museum!

I decided to stay in Paris’s first arrondissement; centralized at a walking distance of the tuileries with obvious views and easy walks to anywhere else … I spent a couple of nights at The Westin Paris-Vendôme then moved to Brighton Hotel that’s situated at a walking distance too.

The Westin offered a high end quality and service; the staff was excellent in every regard! The breakfast buffet comprised a wide variety… And yes I did enjoy eating croissant and baguette and butter… I never ate alone, always shared ! And, gaining weight was out of the equation as I spent my days walking none stop… Remember the equation ? (If Calorie in = Calorie out -> weight is maintained).

Hotel Brighton was a coup de foudre and a complete random pick (I told you, I never walk and deal with a city with a guidebook in hand). And although in size it looks  smaller than Westin, in reality it is much quieter and enables you to have more encounters and meet new faces…  The staff are very welcoming and friendly.I was assigned a very bright, neat and spacious room with “The view” … A view that was about to keep me daydreaming in the room …

The complimentary welcome cocktails were really good! And the Breakfast buffet was generous offering the quintessentials of the French cuisine!
