Back in Paris and it already feels like my home away from home 🙂 It’s nice to be able to speak the language again (I had to rely on my Dad’s limited knowledge of Dutch – he’s an Afrikaner) while we were in the Netherlands. We checked in to our accommodation just off place de la Bastille and decided to take a walk to the nearby place des Vosges – the oldest square in Paris and one of my favourite places in the city. We then made our way through Le Marais (the marsh), the Jewish quarter. I would definitely recommend taking a trip here if you are ever in the city as the place is so rich in history and the food is amazing. We ate at the famous L’As du Fallafel, which is reputedly the best falafel place in Paris. Indeed it was almost full at the random time of 4 in the afternoon, so if you get there during traditional lunch hours, be prepared to queue. I had the complete falafel plate (I think that’s what it was called) and I can vouch for the establishment – it was delicious.
