The Drunken Boat


1 Comment

You know that moment when you discover your crush likes the same band as you? The same ice cream flavor? The same precocious, irreverent 19th century boy-poet? You know, the little things.

Autumn in Paris: Montmartre Cemetery

It rained early this morning, and the cold mist and

Man With a (Fake) Piano?


6 Comments

The Pont Saint-Louis is no stranger to entertainers. From a lone guitarist to jazz bands, there is usually something or someone to listen to should you want a place to pause and polish off your ice cream. A few days ago, we were on our way back to our apartment and this gentleman was setting

This cheese shop is right across from the apartment we’re renting on Rue Lagrange. All the cheeses we tasted were heavenly, but the goat cheese rolled in honey and pistachio was just insane.
