Paris 2012 Marché des Enfants Rouges and Weekends Flea Market
It has been exactly one year since our last trip to Paris (and London), and we planned our this year's at the same date, but this time we had a longer stay. With 'one stone kill two birds', we celebrated both mother's day and our anniversary during the trip. It's the best present to have definitely. I have been to Paris many times during my working years, and yet I never like Paris!! Never knew how to enjoy Paris a bit, besides getting branded staff. I would drag myself self for the trip, and looking forward to go home. But recent years, I started to LOVE this place. After our last trip, hubby and I actually miss Paris really badly.
I am now looking forward to our next one, that will be a year later. Miss the beautiful blue clear sky, miss the taste of the wheaty bread, their food, their quality seasonal fruits and meat....... However, I am very guilty of not doing a proper homework for this year's trip, and we actually wasted a lot of time and missed some places where we wished to go. So, I think, to have our next one more fruitful, I will have to start doing homework NOW!!
Another thing about this trip was also, I realized I am not fit for such a long trip, as I got my body aching pretty badly after this 3 week holidays. Or I simply not having enough exercise. So, I guess the next one would be good, just to stick to 2 weeks. But, I know I will be going to miss it a lot! The universe is telling me to go south of France next year, may be?
First cup of coffee after we've checked in the apartment.
A cosy apartment as home for 8 days. I especially love that mirrors design on the wall.
Our apartment was located at the area of Marché des Enfants Rouges.
During weekends, there will be flea market, that sells all kinds of antiques, and it was truly an eye opening for us. Just outside the market place, there are a stretch of shops selling mostly food staff and kitchen ware.
Their authentic baguette was so good, that we could just eat it on its own, my boy was simply happy to just hold and chew on that stick of baguette as we moved along.
I love this antique toy car.
These raspberries are as big as strawberries or could just cover our whole thumps! They are sooo sweet!! My son could easily pop 2 punnets any time!
A butchery we petrol all the time during our stay.
The French seems to like rabbit (stew) I guess?
Who would miss this out?! Fresh sea caught fish and other seafood. They simply taste the sea of France!
A shop selling nothing but all kinds of roses. They are so beautiful.
I love this particular stall which sells french antiques and old french laces. I was eyeing on that pair of laundry board. But I was 10minutes late......
Wish I could bring them back- My favourite antique toy cars!!
When hubby saw me blogging about this, he said I am 2 months behind time! Hahah.... Hopefully I can finish posting this by mid of the month.
