September equalled amazing weather (+25 to 30 almost every day), a nice long visit from a best friend from Canada, Paris sightseeing, a quick 4 days trip to Spain, a crazy Sierra Nevada car ride to Marbella, catching a cold and experiencing one of the coolest nights since being here.
I’ve been pretty bad lately at posting but here’s a
few tons of photos/videos from September… ♥ Enjoy!
We took a stroll one day to Le Bon Marché where we had a lovely lunch, Luxembourg gardens, Saint Sulpice, the Louvre, Tuileries and home…
We left for Spain on a Friday and after a hour and a half delay (never fly with Transavia.. what a nightmare), we made it.
Video of the Cathedral in Sevilla
My dad had rented a car so we hopped in and took a day trip to the beach… stopping along the way.

Video leaving Zahara on a steep downhill road.
We then stopped in Ronda, a lovely little town with great history involving bullfights, a high bridge and nooks and crannies definitely worth taking the time to find.
We headed back to Seville and caught a bug so the next two days were filled with drugs (legal ones), kleenex, sun and walking around even though we felt like our heads were about to explode. Especially mine.
On our last day, before taking our flight, we visited the Alcazar of Sevilla, one of the oldest Alcazars in the world. I could of spent a couple days walking around here. If you visit, take your time and don’t wait to the last day.
Game of Thrones will be filming here for the Dorne part of the books and I can just imagine how amazing it’ll look on film since it looks beyond incredible in person.
Entry is 9€ for an adult.
In love with Andalucia even more than I was before. ♥
We flew back to Paris 4 days later and continued to be sick so we laid low all week until Brenda’s last Friday in Paris. We decided for Montmartre by night…
We stopped for a Kir Royale on the way and decided to eat at a french bistro… a nice guitarist was playing typical french and spanish songs and the weather was gorgeous.
We were to eat and then head to the Sacré Coeur…
We never made it.
We stayed at the restaurant, ate escargots, a moule frites, salad, consumed many beers, moved tables and talked/sang with the guitarist, at one point, a pianist who was playing across the road joined us for a quick chat, we closed the place and headed home at around 1:30 a.m. a bit tipsy, a Paris night you could watch in a movie and with memories that will last a lifetime….
and a one minute moment that may or may not have involved the waiter and I.. haha.
Recap of my recent trip to the South of France to follow shortly…
