so…älskling left Sweden today… the boat is sailing towards Africa. Damn i woke up feeling miserable. I m off for 2 days and have no idea what to do. Im so confused. I hate not being able to reach him. Ever. He’s the one who can call. I can’t.
I so wish i would be home with my family. Have our weekend routine with huge breakfast, walking the dog, watching stupid shows… pffffff
So i bought myself a big kannelbulle, watched Extreme Make Over (and cried as always), and i think i might try to bake a quiche later.
today the cute Erica from Sweats and Heart left me a comment saying she was going to Paris for the first time in May, and i thought of all places i’m missing there. And i thought, why not share with you my favorite places in Paris? I just through out the ones that first came to my mind now but i’ll be updating.
1) Food and Drinks
- An amazing and delicious “salon de thé” with the best hot chocolate ever: Angelina
- The best icecreams are at Amorino (no kidding, they actually have one that taste Nutella, but my favorites are Raspberry duh, and Mango)
- The brasserie on the top floor of the Printemps store is so lovely (though a little expensive)
- http://www.karamell.fr/ Swedish Candies !!
- the shakespeare and co bookstore is a place to see !!! It is tiny and so so cute ! You can find so many used and new english books.

3) museums and monuments
- the Muséed’Orsay and the Rodin Museum are my favorites
- The Père Lachaise cimetery where, among others, James Morrisson is buried.
- Trocadero (make sure you arrive by Trocadero to see the Eiffel Tower it’s the best view)

- the Ile de la cité with the cathedrale
- the latin area
