Paris 16th to Les Jardin des Tuileries [Walk #1]

One New Year’s Resolutions that my husband and I share is to take a long walk together every weekend.  Before he met me, Edouard used to go on a weekly “Sunday walk” to get some exercise.  (I was usually still recovering from my Saturday night…)

I’ve decided to get in on the fun so for the past 2 weekends of 2015, we have indeed been out and about enjoying Paris life and stretching our legs.  This post is of our first walk which we took from our home in the 16th, all the way to Les Jardin des Tuileries.  I’ll be posting about many more walks like this, I hope, as the year goes on.

There’s always so much to see when walking around a city, so let me share with you some of the things that caught our eyes:

Blue doors as blue as the sky.

After taking a break from our 5k walk, we fought back our laziness and took a strole around the garden a bit.  There’s some interesting things to see there too…

The walk actually ended with a much-needed cup of hot chocolate… But I’ll tell you about that another time.

    • Yeah, Paris tends to be mostly grey and rainy during the winter :-/ I was so happy to see sun that I was bouncing all around the apartment trying to get ready fast so I could make it outside before it hid behind a cloud or something! My husband thought I was crazy haha
