Hey everyone 

One big happy hello from Paris!

  If you've been following my updates on Instagram you must have noticed, I have spent some time here and traveled alone to the city of light and I am absolutely loving it. To be really honest with you guys, I needed a serious break from work and my blog for a while and I still will take it easy for a couple of weeks. What better way to recharge myself in the most romantic and beautiful city on the planet. The first days of my stay I spent roaming around and eating and drinking at the most wonderful places! I am talking crepes at the creperie: Ar Poul Gwen on Rue Etienne Marcel in the first arrondisment, smoked salmon club sandwiches at Cafe Du Trocadero with an amazing Eiffeltower view, macaron tasting at Ladurée and Pierre Hermé and one of the best falafel sandwiches I have éver tasted at the Falafel Café on Rue Bernard de Clairvaux. Foods in Paris are just way too good and if not careful you can easily put on way too many unwanted pounds. I usually eat very healthy, organic and "green", but that went quickly down the French toilet after my first creamy almond filled croissant tasting, To feel less guilty I did manage to fix myself healthy salads at my apartment almost every night.

On the third day I felt like I caught the beginnings of a nasty flu. Stomach and headaches accompanied by the chills were in full attack and the worst thing I could imagine was to be bed struck for a week  while I needed to be out there, heck I was missing out already! I went to the nearest pharmacy and stocked up on doses of Oscillococcinum and aspirin filled lemon drinks and bought: herbal teas. honey, fresh ginger, mint, fruits and chicken soup at the organic store to beat this thing before it would really catch me. Besides feeding myself with the healthiest foods, I rested and slept almost all day. I felt bad, I lost one full day darn it! Luckily my home remedies worked, because the next day I felt slightly better and that was great because it was Valentines day and my valentine was coming out all the way from Amsterdam to spend this special day with me.

We went for a walk on Avenue de L'opéra up to the Louvre and went down Rue Saint-Honoré to Le Castiglione for seriously thé best veggie soup and escargots I have tasted in  years. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Mind you I was still not well, so that explains why I am wrapped up in four layers of clothing and nothing too glamorous. Comfort had to be a winner that day. I know, I know, not very "Valentines" sexy! We finished the day with a very late but excellent steak dinner at L'escargot ,  I will share a few photos of that in a next post as I did change outfits and it did contain the color red. I have to tell you this day was absolutely perfect, so here are a few of my favorite shots to give you a Paris impression, enjoy!
