Paris was wonderful! Although my poor feet were so sore and were in dire need of a pedicure when I got back. We did so many things, including visiting Laduree (their hot chocolate is amazing, as are their cakes), going up the eiffel tower after queuing for over 2 hours, visiting the Pompidou centre (EU citizens under 26 get free entry!), having a picnic on the left bank watching the boats go by, eating lots of Bethillion ice cream (Scott became slightly obsessed with it), watching the bastille day fireworks from the Pantheon, going to Shakespeare & Co, going to the Scare Couer and being annoyed with all the 'tourist traps' and thinking it wasn't anything like in Amelie, wandering around the Pigalle and being asked if we want to see a 'show', having breakfast at Paul's bakery every morning and being embarassed by how badly we spoke French.
