River Seine Paris via Deco Tartelette
The day we walked all over Paris…oh my! We covered a lot of ground in one day…we were so thrilled to be there that with jet lag still haunting us, we were running off of pure adrenaline and cafe au laits.

We took the Metro from Montmartre to Rue Cler to pick up some goodies for a picnic by the Eiffel Tower. The Metro was super simple to use…we pre-purchased 10 tickets/5 rides each which was perfect for two days.

Rue Cler is famous for its specialty shops…1 street filled with bakeries, charcuteries, fromageries, flower shops…we grabbed a baguette (but of course), a bottle of wine, and cheeses aplenty and headed toward the Champ de Mars to nibble on our goodies and take in the view.

After filling our bellies with rich treats, we set off to walk along the River Seine. We found ourselves walking all day which was lovely.

Jardin de Tuileries | Deco Tartelette
We walked through the Jardin de Tuileries where we kicked up our feet for a bit, watching families take their daily stroll and kiddos hopping off and on the carousel.

After stopping for a few cappuccinos along the way, we finally made it to Paris’ Left Bank in the 6th Arrondissement.

I absolutely loved this area. Full of so much history and delightful corners everywhere you turned…it was magical.

We stopped to pick up a novel at Shakespeare and Co. before heading to the Notre Dame to watch the sunset over the River Seine.

For our trip, all I brought was a small handbag and this backpack. Yep, that’s it. I went back and forth about it for awhile before we departed, especially since this was our first trip to Europe. I wanted to bring everything with me of course, yet also wanted to have the ability to get up and go, hands-free. I’m so happy I went this route. I packed staples that layered well and somehow didn’t even wear everything I brought. Our excursion was 15 days total and we typically did a small load of laundry at each of our Airbnbs…
