My love of Paris has no bounds (check out my obsession Here and Here). So when the opportunity for this cheap flight arose, I figured it was a sign from the travel gods for me to go to this magnificent city again. The whole idea behind this trip was to go to Spain because a) I had never been and it seemed like the perfect place to go and b) I want it to jump start my Spanish, which has been a goal of mine for years.
So I have decided in this week away, I am truly getting the best of both worlds.
In the same way I am doing for Spain, in Paris I am renting out in the 6th arrondissementor the Latin Quarter.
Trip Advisor says it best about my soon-to-be-favorite neighborhood:
The legendary Latin Quarter is located on the left bank of the Seine, going approximately from St. Michel to Odeon and making up part of the 5th and 6th arrondissements. As one of the oldest districts in Paris, this is a swanky, high-class neighborhood well-known for its historical cafes and brasseries, as well as its vibrant student population (a result of the nearby Sorbonne). Nestled into the buildings along the Seine is Shakespeare & Company, the famous ex-pat English language bookshop. Also to be discovered here are the gorgeous Gardens of Luxembourg and architectural highlights like the Pantheon and Saint Sulpice. On the southern edge, the Rue Mouffetard offers a marvelous, winding array of cheese shops, wine cellars and bakeries to explore.
