Tuesday Travel Snapshot-Paris Love Locks

Love them or hate them- it seems Paris  cannot escape the infamous love locks.  Despite the city’s efforts to stop the tourists from professing their undying love for each other sealed with a lock, they  just keep showing up. Read about how they dismantled the 45 tons of locks from the Pont des Arts bridge in 2015 here. Not only did I spot them on various bridges, they seemed to show up at many places. No metal structure is immune! FYI: I did not partake in this crazy tradition How do you feel about the locks? Yes or…

Book Recommendation: Pancakes In Paris by Craig Carlson

  My book recommendation for this month is Breakfast In America by Craig Carlson Not only did this fun read make me incredibly hungry for all breakfast food, it  was a great glimpse into the crazy bureaucracy of starting and running a restaurant in Paris. This is the true story of Craig Carlson and his very famous diner style Breakfast In America restaurants in Paris. Armed with an idea and a dream, his journey is not an easy one by far. Struggling with setback after setback, Craig never gives up on his dream. It sure takes a tough skin to…

Musee d’Orsay In Pictures

Lampposts Outside The Louvre

This photo of the row of lampposts in the courtyard outside the Louvre is one of my favorites from all the hundreds I took in Paris in September.  My goal was to take enough pictures to keep my Instagram account supplied until my next trip to Paris! If you don’t already, follow me on Instagram (@lorilovesparis) to see all my photos. I was going through  my Paris photos (again!) and decided instead of writing a full blog post today, I thought I would share some of my favorite photos with you. This photo just puts me in such…

Two Lessons I Learned From My Paris Trip

Could Paris live up to my high expectations? Now that I’ve been back home from my second trip to Paris for nearly a month I can sit back and think about the lessons I learned from my Paris trip. There were a few things I was concerned about before I left for Paris.  Mainly, will it live up to the expectations that I had?  I built Paris up in my mind so much that I was worried that it would not be the magical place I remembered from the first time around.  Since this was the first time…

Shopping Day In Paris

Paris and shopping go together and that is just a plain fact.  I first fell in love with Paris many years ago  simply because I loved fashion and Paris is the fashion capitol of the world.  That was my first reason for wanting to visit this city.  Seeing all those stylish French women in pictures in magazines and on TV made me long to be them.  If only someday I could visit Paris maybe some of that style would rub off on me. Well whether or not that has happened after two trips to Paris is debatable.  I try and…
