One of the hardest challenges was to tell of our travels in Paris without talking about the meals we were eating, and still staying on the story line, that is, we could also tell you about our travels by way of our meals.

The solution’s was to wait and give a bonus section about the food, so here it is. I do admit that there were two meals that were not that great, and they both were Asian. On the other hand, all of the French cuisine was fantastic. Another thing that we noticed was that the food in what would be called a tourist spots were also great, e.g. the restaurants at Versailles and the Orsay will be remembered as very enjoyable meals.

Many of the day’s narratives started out with breakfast, and they were all provided at the Hotel. What are great way to start the day! Not only with a wholesome bake goods but with fellow travelers and guests of the hotel. We had really wonderful coffee with warm cream (why don’t we do this in the U.S.?), cold cuts, fresh baguettes, croissants, cheeses, yogurts, cereals, and fruit.

To keep this simple, I am going to put this in to categories and not chronological order, enjoy! A nice surprise was how great the pizza and pasta was in France. Sorry New York and Chicago, but the best Pizza that I have ever had was in France and not just one time.
