Well, I’m coming to you from Paris as my first stop in a 3-city trip!
I will forever believe that the best vegan food I can get is in my kitchen. Traveling (especially global travels) really nails that home! What I wouldn’t do for a flat with a kitchen instead of a hotel room!
It’s certainly not all bad though, and I’ve honestly had some lovely eats in the past several days.
First – things I ate before hopping my flight last Thursday…
And since arriving in Paris…
Overall, being a vegan in Paris isn’t the easiest. I try to keep bread to a minimum (causes inflammation and irritates the RA). Veggies and fruits aren’t hard to find, but to not have everything swimming in cheese is….
Before heading to Paris late last week, it was runs and yoga.
Since getting here, it’s been walks, hikes, and one run so far.
Last week was the start of the school year! Seems so strange to have only one of my kids left in regular school (as in, not college where the other two are!).
And it was all about spending time together before my nearly 3-wk trip out of the country. That and wrapping up all loose ends at work and trying as hard as I could to prep for my residency and all the cases I had to do!
Paris is beautiful (of course), though I will say that the city reminds me very much of Washington DC.
Day 1 was walking around with a friend until our hotel rooms were ready.
Day 2 I went to Disneyland Paris by myself! Being a theme-park junkie, it was awesome.
And then classes started, so it’s all studying, all the time, with the exception of company visits, guest speakers, and some school-sponsored fun thrown in (like Le Foodist, a walking tour of Paris, and a visit to Champagne).
The rest of the pics are non-Europe shots 🙂 My standard morningpictures (now that school is back in!), cats, dog, and general mayhem.
And now – going back to my studies!! Au revoir (for now!)
