Paris, Blogging and New Friends.......

On the 30th August, I got a new reader to my blog named Jennifer and she left a comment and it said...

"Hi Anne, it sounds like you're having a great time! Exactly how long will you be in Paris? I live here and was wondering if you'd like to meet in a café for a coffee or something, if there's wishes, Jennifer....."

I was amazed, so I emailed Jennifer and we arranged to meet up, on the Monday 31st at 4.30 on the corner of my street....I did ask her what she looked like, we wouldn't of known each other at all.

On that day I also went out with Barbara, to Bercy Village, and Bercy Park, which I have yet to post about and put my pictures up. We both had a wonderful time, browsing around the great shops, chatting and having fun. It was also one of the hottest days of my visit! I arrived home at 16.10, only 20 minutes to sort myself out!

So off I went to the little restaurant on the corner, and waited, I saw a lady walking towards me on the other side of the road, and I thought, she has long red hair wonder if that is Jennifer..Yes it was...and we just started chatting.. I said where would you like to go for coffee, she said, maybe we should have a wine !! :-)

We went to my favourite street...Rue Cler and got seats in the open at one of the great cafes/restaurants, we went to Tribeca..and had a Kir or two and dinner. We had a wonderful few hours, and I have also put Jennifer in touch with Leesa, I am sure they will meet up too!!

Thank you Jennifer , I had a fun evening, and lots of good chat! She has blog too....Called My Year in Paris!!!

  4. Thank you so much Anne, that was sweet. It was great to meet you too and I'm sure we will get together again on your next trip! I'm posting something about this on my blog too, but it has to wait a couple of days, I've been working non-stop:-))

  5. You are a very adventrous lady!

    Glad you had fun in Paris, though I didn't think it was the most romantic city in the world.


  6. What a wonderful story! I love how blogging brings strangers together from all over the world, who then become friends.

  7. What fun to meet yet another blogger, and for Jennifer to suggest wine...I love her style!

  8. It is great to meet up with random people like that - love it! But i would have liked to have found out what yummy things you ate too! Sounds like a great holiday :)

  9. How wonderful! How brave for both of you - and sounds like you both enjoyed it so much!

  10. I have really enjoyed reading about your adventures in Paris, Anne.
    Too meet so many like-minded bloggers must be an exhilarating experience.
