Adventures in Touristing

The Sacré Cœur and Montmartre Edition

sa

One unexpectedly warm and sunny afternoon Jess and I trekked  up to Paris's highest point, Sacré Cœur! The lawns were lovely and speckled with loungers, picnickers and bookworms! We joined them for a bit before reaching the basilica at the top.

After the long walk up to the basilica we were in need of a little pick me up, we found the most delicious cafe creme and creme brûlée in Montmartre! Taking a cue from one of my favorite movies ( Amélie ) I took special care when cracking the hard caramel top!
