Our first port of call was Paris. I've been really fortunate to have visited Paris many times before, mainly due to work, however what made this visit particularly special was that is was my very first time with Andrew. It was so lovely strolling along the Seine with him, showing him my favourite little spots in the Marais and St. Germain, and just being there together.
While it was August, and that time is known for crowds, it is also when many Parisians leave for their holidays in the South, so there was a definite calmness to the city with much less traffic and hustle and bustle. And although it looks very grey in the photos below, it was actually quite warm, and when the sun came out, it was perfect.
