The very last thing we ate in Paris was this crepe from Breizh Café in Le Marais, our first crepe of the entire trip! (Well, I guess this is actually a galette, since it’s savory and made from buckwheat flour.) We were in a huge hurry, so we met Jack’s cousin there for a last goodbye, got it to go, and ate it an hour or so later at the airport, and it still blew our minds!
Our final meal in Paris was at the 3 Michelin star Le Cinq in the Four Seasons Hotel. I spent forever reading about the 3-star restaurants to figure out which of the 10 I wanted to try, and all reviews of Le Cinq made a point of how modern and playful the food is–my favorite! This collection of spheres that tasted like orange, ginger, and cherry was the perfect start to a meal full of novelty and whimsy. (That ended with a $12 shot of coffee!)
Love on the Pont des Arts bridge in Paris. And the perfect moment for me to talk about the Instagram tool I LOVE most, @latermedia. I use Later every day to schedule my Instagram posts and can’t imagine my life without it as a photographer. It allows me to upload photos ~from my computer~ in case I edited and saved them there, and when I’m choosing hashtags to use, it shows me how many photos have been posted to that hashtag so I can tell how popular it is. I can upload photos to my media library to use them now or save them for later, and when I schedule a post, it pops up on my phone to remind me it’s time to send it to Instagram. Later basically makes it possible for me to go on vacation and post to Instagram while I’m away without having to take time out of my day to caption and hashtag my photos. I can’t even begin to talk about how much time it saves me. This isn’t a paid ad or anything; I just really love the service! Please check out the link in my profile to sign up and get free posts. And let me know if you use Later so we can exclaim over it together!
One of the best croissants I’ve ever had, and it was at the AIRPORT in France. Even the airport coffee was better than the best coffee in the U.S. Come on!
