My first full day in Paris, we biked over 30 kilometers. We went from the Farmer’s Market to brunch, to the canal and back again (vlog here). It was late and we were starving, and ended up at a pizza place in the 6th arrondissement.

It feels like a lifetime since I travelled. Really, it was only 2018, but I had loose plans to go to Europe in 2020, and we all know what happened next. London… Paris… I miss these places. My friend Chantal, with whom I went to
