It his hard to believe, but it was almost seven years ago that Brittany and I went to Paris last and got engaged. Actually, if you look at the old photos and see how skinny I am, it’s not that hard to believe.
Paris was our second stop after Iceland (see Iceland Day One and Iceland Day Two). Paris and Iceland provide extreme contrasts between natural beauty and man made beauty, isolation and urban density, simple design and ornate.
One of the things that changed in the last seven years was the invention of Airbnb, which is where we booked our apartment located a few blocks away from the Eiffel Tower, in the 7th arrondissement. The apartment was compact, as was expected but was a very nice spot to travel the city from, and allowed us to be very comfortable during our stay.
