Paris Diaries

Our five days in the City of Lights for the Maison & Objet trade fair. Oh yes, we’ll always have Paris.

Have tea, will travel.

Earlier this month, we headed off to Paris for Maison & Objet, a trade show for home and lifestyle products. It was a busy but fun few days, filled with hard work, oyster breaks, encounters with some, shall we say, kooky Parisians, and many cups of P & T tea — mais oui.

Our adventures began far, far too early in the morning, with a sunrise bus trip down to Berlin’s Tegel Airport.

… into a thing of beauty. Then we made tea and gave out lots and lots of it.

We got a little lost…

… but found our way home in the end. Au revoir, Paris.
