Paris: Day One

As you may or may not know, last week, Lee and I went to Paris. I originally intended to take some outfit pictures on each day, but, seeing as we were only there for three days (and with one of those days being spent at Disneyland), we wanted to pack as much in as possible. So I decided to just split my Paris posts up in to three parts instead, one for each day. 

So the first day we spent the morning getting our bearings. We've not been to the city in two years, but as soon as we were back at Lamarck-Caulaincourt, everything was so familiar. We spent the morning wandering around Montmartre and eating a fresh baguette from a local boulanger, and headed on to the Metro to the Palais-Royal. Once there, we made our way towards the Pantheon, resting place of many renowned French authors (including Victor Hugo, which I got very excited about), philosophers and scientists, including Marie Curie. We then stopped off for a quick sandwich before some more sightseeing.

In the afternoon, we decided to walk towards the Eiffel Tower along the river, passing sights such as Notre Dame, but not before we'd been in Shakespeare and Company, a famous English language bookshop. It was tiny but absolutely filled to the brim with books, and even a library upstairs. We then spotted Cafe de Flore, which, although we didn't eat in, looked amazing. One day when I'm rich I will eat there. We wandered around for hours, taking in the wonderful scenery before heading back to our hotel to freshen up for food at our favourite local haunt in Montmartre: Le Nord Sud. Definitely worth a try if you are in the area. I'll be back with day two soon.

  1. We went to Paris at the same time and I stayed in Montmartre as well. I love that area and Paris is an amazing city. Glad you had a good time.
