For as awesome as pastries and all-things-edible are, I always wanted to show you guys more about my travels. The problem was, with a blog called “Paris Patisseries”, it seemed a little odd to drag you along with me to London, Rome or Brussels. If only I could have had a site with a few blogs tucked inside it, then it could have worked. Well, guess what? Now I do. So welcome to “Out and About”!
Many of the entries in this section of the site are going to be from my romps around Paris: visits to Sacré Coeur, l’Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and the like. But it’s also going to be pretty heavy on my travels outside of the city, whether that’s my treks to Lyon and Nice or international adventures in Dublin, Berlin, Milan and more. After all, I can only stay locked inside an apartment with a camera and tons of the world’s finest pastries for so long. I need to stretch my legs a little.
Over the coming weeks, I’m going to trot out some of my adventures from this past summer. I think it’s pretty fitting, given that it’s freezing outside for most of you, and a 5 minute escape to Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence would kind of hit the spot. And, of course, I’ll weave in lots of Paris shots, too. And if you want to come have tea with me at Ladurée’s bar . . . we’ll also be doing that.
As always, make sure you follow me on Facebook, on Twitter, with email updates, or by RSS Feed. They’re the easiest ways to run away with me to Rome . . . or if you find yourself needing a stroll down the Champs-Élysées. And, really, who doesn’t?
