With two young children and very busy schedules, date nights have been elusive for my wife and me. We decided to to take one night and travel to Paris, which made a lovely getaway and demonstrates the relative ease of travel within Europe.
Date Night In Paris – The Ease Of Travel Within Europe
Paris is where my wife, Heidi, and I spent our honeymoon (our unofficial one, anyway…we ended up taking a proper honeymoon to India and the Maldives over a year after our wedding). Neither of us speak French, but still find it an amazing city full of beauty and history.
While Paris is generally crowded with tourists in July, with corona measure still in place, we did not experience the crowds that make it far less pleasant.
We returned to the Park Hyatt, which I will review tomorrow, which is centrally-located and still one of my favorite hotels in the world. A first for me in many stays, I was upgraded to a suite and we enjoyed our time together in the room.
But we ventured out as well, enjoying a great walk through the city and the entire afternoon at the Louvre Museum. Neither of us had been inside the museum for over a decade and we loved it…I will post a photo essay, as I took many photos inside. What a difference a few years makes in terms of art appreciation.
We had lunch at The Louvre, splitting a salad and salmon quiche.
In the summer, sunset occurs as late as 10:00PM in Paris, which makes evening strolls so pleasant.
We had dinner at a restaurant called Mori, which offered delightful Italian food and was located within walking distance of our hotel.
Despite staying up late, we slept in and had a relaxing leisurely morning and late breakfast.
And that was that…we had one appointment which we took care of, then it was back to Paris Gare de l’Est for our train to back to Mulhouse.
Our trip to Paris was short…but sweet. I love little getaways and was so thankful my wife and I could get away, even, if just for one night. I could spend weeks in Paris, but one night is better than none…
