Happy Bastille Day! Bastille day commemorates the day when Parisian citizens stormed the Bastille prison and became the start of the French Revolution. It is a huge celebration in Paris and they prepare for it months in advance.
So in celebration of this Parisian holiday, I am sharing some photos from my trip to France a couple of years ago. Also, my friends and I are sharing some French-inspired recipes. Bienvenue!
We stayed at a hotel near Notre Dame Cathedral in the Left Bank.
This photo is from inside the Louvre museum. I could write a book about this amazing place. A must see if visiting Paris.
Here is me getting a little wind-blown from the top of the tour bus. These bus tours are a great way to see highlights of the city for an overview. Then you can choose which places to tour.
But there is nothing like the Eiffel Tower at night for a spectacular sight.
Paris is an amazing city and I hope to go back again soon. There are tons of celebrations going on this weekend. The way I look at it, if you cannot get to France, you can still celebrate - right?
Here are some delicious recipes from my friends and I to bring a little bit of France to your home.
Bon appétit! What is your favorite French dish?
