paris in july 2014

I've nearly let my favourite annual blogging event, 
Paris in July, get away from me. But, just in time...

paris in july 2014

Two years ago I was in Paris, and I've posted some of the things I saw (best thing EVER: the Cimetière des Chiens et Autres Animaux Domestiques) and ate and ate and ate for Paris in July 2012. But I think there's always room for a bit more of one's travels, and I've had a look back at other trips -- and what fun to relive Paris all over again. Right, pull up a chair, maybe makes yourself a batch of David Lebovitz's foolproof gougères and enjoy!

Look up!

Spend 3500 Euros on black truffles 
or a nice vase?

...when they feel as though 
they've walked down 
every street in Paris?
