I was going through old photos this morning, and this one above hit me square between the eyes. PARIS. Can’t go back soon enough.

Also, did you guys see Leandra’s theory on why Parisian women have better hair? She thinks it’s the calcium in the tap water. Hey, it’s a good theory!

That reminds me… I forgot to post the Prague round up! That one is comin’ right up.

    I will be heading there in a few weeks- cannot wait to Velib all over the place! And indulge in all the tasty baked goods I miss from when I lived in France.

    Man, you’re making me miss it too! I was in France for two weeks about a month ago and I’m already trying to plan a return trip. There’s no place like it.

    For real!!! I didn’t have one bad hair day while in London & Paris last week. Now I’m back in Portland and my hair is back to being a wavy, huge bother. Guess I just have to move to Paris…

    Paris is one of my very favorite cities, so we try to go at least once a year (easier these days now that we live in Europe). There is definitely a magic that supersedes all bad weather, lost luggage and anything else that could go wrong. After all, Paris is always a good idea!

    You looked so put together and very un-touristy on this trip. I’d love to hear your packing tips and must-brings for travel. Packing is always so hard for me!

    Your comment about calcium (calcaire) in the water cracked me up. Granted, I’m not Parisian, but an American living in Paris, but the water here makes my hair bleh. Ironically, the chlorine in the swimming pool seems to counter balance the calcium, and now all my friends ask me “did you go swimming today? Your hair looks great!” Seriously.

    Let me know when you come back 🙂

    I love going through photos of past trips. It makes so much difference being able to just do it online now. I never used to look at photo albums.
