Day 11: Paris at Night by Boat
06.01.2015 - 05.02.2015
As touristy as it may seem, a bateau down the Seine en nuit is something everyone should experience in order to fully appreciate the beauty of Paris. Paris is unquestionably one of the most spectacularly beautiful cities in the world. Paris at night is indescribable. Even in winter. From the water, at night, lit in all its glory, you can see a different Paris. Words do not do it justice.
Before setting off on the boat, I wandered through St Germaine. I am on a mission to find the perfect Paris neighborhood. While sauntering through the lovely streets of St. Germaine, I found yet another Louis Vuitton store. As if I didn't have enough decisions to make regarding LV, a new Louis has now appeared on the scene. Poppy has arrived. She is a limited edition and is just perfect. She is, however, 500 euros more than my previous temptation; the salmon-trimmed beauty known in Paris as lichee. Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. I may be able to rationalize spending more. The euro has dropped a penny a day since I've arrived. Vive la dollar.
