I recently had the good fortune to take a ‘design inspired’ trip to Paris, to see friends and attend some amazing events. Since I only speak a few key words of French, enough to order a coffee or glass of wine which is crucial in France, the best bonus of my visit was that my hosts speak fluent French!
The weather turned out to be unseasonably warm and dry, so our days were spent walking the city, mostly in the areas of The Louve, The Marias, Montparnasse and Invalides, basically 4 neighborhoods in central Paris.
My main objective was to see and experience as much design, art and culture as possible in 8 days, so it was non-stop. This selection of photos basically sums it up.
