Paris – Day 6

Anniversary Day

 

We’ve got to get that carousel marked off the list. We spend the morning walking through Montmartre and checking out the carousel and the Montmartre funicular (included in our metro pass). We have croissants and coffee at a lovely sidewalk cafe. We go back to the Biscuiterie de Montmartre and purchase macarons to bring home. We stop at a crêperie and have crepes with sugar and lemon. We get a smashed penny at the Dali Museum. We say we’re going to the Père Lachaise Cemetery, but I’ll be honest, we’ve been running our butts off for days. We’ve been trying to fit in every monument and every point of interest, and we’re exhausted. It’s been so much fun, but we need to slow down if we’re going to consider this a relaxing vacation. And it’s our anniversary, so we can do what we want. We take a stroll through the Le Marais neighborhood. We’ve purchased pop-up cards for our nieces and nephew, so we stop by a post office and mail them off (to our surprise, they actually made it to them). Travis makes us dinner reservations at a restaurant with no menu. Or really, the menu is different every day. We spend the evening ordering dish after dish until we’ve tried almost everything. We have a couple of nice cocktails and finish the evening with champagne. We also find a craft beer bar called Le Supercoin. It has a great atmosphere and the bartenders are nice and helpful.
