Paris Trip: Day One.


Well, it almost feels a little odd to be blogging again after another few week break! These pictures may explain a little bit of my absence, as well as that I've got a new job, and along with my other normal job and driving lessons in tow, the time for blogging just hasn't been there as much as I'd like. I've got a bit of a schedule sorted now though so I can keep up with it. But in the meantime, here's part one of my Parisian adventure!

We headed out to Paris on Monday evening and only got to our hotel at midnight after figuring out all the different RER and metro's we had to get on. After a good nights sleep we headed to Montmatre in the morning of our first real day, which was quite near to the area we were staying in. It's a very arty little village with lots of different artists sat in the main square wanting people to draw with little paintings to sell. It's a really lovely area, we also popped by Van Gogh's house and had lunch at an Italian opposite which was dreamy! I really wanted to visit the Sacre Couer as it's something I missed during a previous trip, and it was such a beautiful church, really awe inspiring to walk around. The views of Paris from up there are worth the trip alone too. I nipped into a few little shops, including the Pharmacies, and was all ready to stock up on Bioderma and Serozinc until I realised I wouldn't be able to take it back in my hand luggage, sob!

Tuesday was a bit of a quiet day in Paris as a lot of things were closed, so we headed to Concorde on the metro and had a wander around the Tullieries which are absolutely beautiful, such a lovely place to have a little stop for a crepe and coffee (which I did two days in a row, FYI). We walked up the gardens to the Louvre which wasn't open, so we just had a little wander around the area and down the Seine. There's lots of little stalls on either side selling old books and posters so there was a good amount of browsing before we took a little ride on a boat trip of the city. It's a very touristy thing to do, and the amount of people doing selfies infront of you does get a tad annoying, but it's a fantastic way to get some great views of the city as well as learning a bit of the history too.

Stay tuned for days two and three coming soon, as well as my Paris haul - you all knew this was coming!

  16. Am really looking forward to your photos and your Paris haul! Gorgeous photos! I think that's one of the things I like about blogging - you can live vicariously through other people's blogs! I've never been to Paris but I like seeing how other people see it. Definitely on my bucket list to go one day!
