Paris week - part fourteen

This is the final part of 'Paris week'. Hope you enjoyed the picture souvenirs.

Au revoir, horseman. I already look forward to seeing which carrés he'll be holding next time.

 A quick look into the Rive Gauche store
 


With an hour to spare before the departure of our train, we went for a drink at the Train Bleu, in the Gare de Lyon train station. I cannot imagine a more beautiful, opulant and elegant place to wait for a train, it always make me look forward to the journey back home.

A last toast to the Ville Lumière..

  5. I hope we two will drink a glass of champagne at 'Le Train Bleu' one day. Probably the most beautiful restaurant I've ever been to.

  6. I love the "Train Bleu", thank You for the woderful photos. So many many years ago I have been in Paris and did not know the restaurant. On a Sunday I has been invited to a railroad station restaurant. I was a little unhappy, because at this time that means in Austria you have to expect nothing good. What a surprise! I was overwhelmed!

  9. Ah it finally ends, I have so enjoyed wandering Paris with you, your eye for detail and sublime images is so unique and inimitable.
    I don't know which to start with, I enjoyed each and every segment of the unfolding journal, and as someone so eloquently mentioned previously I too have been hooked from the very first post and remember so vividly the shot of you with the Joseph shearling and the little etoupe Picotin, just breathtaking!
    Bravo dearest MaiTai for your amazing blog that has kept me smiling and totally enthralled all this time, you truly are an inimitable lady!

  11. Hello MaiTai, Loved the peek inside the Rive Gauche store - what an amazing piece of sculpture/ architecture it is. Based on pictures you have posted in the past of Train Bleu, my husband and I had a glass of champagne there before boarding our train for Venice in March last year. It is such a beautiful space, truly extraordinary and a reminder of the romantic era of travel. Thank you for the recommendation! xx
