Paris Photos (finally) and a ramble

Thursday, July 7, 2011





I finallllllly sorted through Paree pics...

Paris was alright! I liked taking pictures. And riding bikes. And shopping. And drinking wine at the Louvre, and eating crepes. And spending time with my friendos. and Marko. I don't have the parisophilia but I like it well enough!
Mark also made me buy new glasses because he said he hated my old ones because they were too big. Whatever, I got a new pair of sunglasses. Now I wear both!

ok...so enjoy the pics! next on the agenda is Venice pics. Venizia. But tomorrow I'm on the way to a random trip to Hannover (de) for work - in my first week. I have to be up in 3 hrs and 45 minutes. This was not the most well planned day! But it was a great one.

Hi! I'm still here. I keep thinking I'm going to end but I"m chatty.  Today I met my blog friend Nina who is from South Africa and she is in Switzerland visiting. She doesn't have a blog but we've emailed back and forth. Her dog and my dog are penpals. (just let that be). Anyway, we planned to meet at the train station in Zurich but I was late and we must have both realized we Never said what we'd be wearing or anything - BUT...GET THIS...I was wearing a triangle necklace and she totally recognized it!!!!!!! YEAH TRIANGLES YOU SAVED MY LIFE! maybe i'm exaggerating, but now you guys can't make fun of me as they can save really important situations. We had a blast talking over Prosecco and dinner.

And did I tell you that last week I got to meet Jamie from Lyrical Journey? We only had a quick hour (also in the zurich trainstation) for breakfast before her flight but it was soooo fun. On these both occasions I felt like I was meeting old friends.

It's meet a blogger month. Have you met one? I'm making that up of course.

Clearly I should go to bed.

I love that Mark has an opinion about your sunglasses. My husband is the same way! I'm glad you liked Trattoria della Madonna in Venezia! Other than a Swiss blogger meet-up years ago, I met a nice girl through my blog who brought me Goody hairbands and bobby pins from the States -- it was the best!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

Sure, I've met you :-)

Thank God for triangles!

I don't have the Parisophilia either but I loved your photos :-)

very married said...

triangles are saving the day!!

very jealous of the travels, btw. :)

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

oh Krystal, this photo re-cap of your trip is gorgeous! i love all the shots and architecture but the best is a starbucks cup on that chair with the vino! so rad : )

the boyf isn't fond of my huge eye coverings either, i still love em' though. your newbies sound like a great alternative when he's on an anti MK-Ols bend - baha!

can't wait to see the Venice ones, i've been there before so am anxious to get a view from your perspective.

absolutely loved hearing about your meet up with Nina, triangles are the new rose in the lapel me thinks!!! awesome indeed. seeing someone you've corresponded with for the first time in person is such a thrill. i've met a few bloggy friends before and it was epic, so happy you got to see these two and it felt like old times right away.

happy, safe journeys love, be well on all counts! ♥

Jamie said...

You make paris look even more amazing than I remember!

Thanks again for getting up crazy early to meet up with me - it was so fun sharing breakfast with you. It felt like I was talking to an old friend, not someone I was meeting for the first time.

Reina said...

LyddieGal said...

Well that sounds awesome - blogger meet up and pairs. yeah. awesome.
your overhead breakfast shot is my fave. love your photography! Its always nice to have some really creative shots when you come home from a trip, I feel like everyone gets bored of the same old shots of the same old big important landmarks you've seen a million times before.

Chic on the Cheap
