Travel | Paris Photo Diary


While I was on a quick city break to 'Pareeee' last week, I took a few snaps on my phone and thought I'd share them. The Monday night involved a bit of sightseeing, visiting the sacré Coeur where you will find thee best view of Paris ever, ice cream in our hotels garden (we stayed at L'hotel du Moulin which was lovely-good for the price and bang in the middle of town so literally everything was in walking distance), more food (when in Paris eh?) at La Galette du Moulin which was down the cutest little lane (picture 4). I had a lardons, crème fraiche, cheese and mushrooms galette (wholemeal crepe) which was delicious. As you can tell from the photo I was too impatient to take a photo before eating it and had already gobbled up pretty much all of it...


The next day we had brunch at Le Pain Quotidien in Lepic. We were looking all over the place for somewhere to eat and finally settled on this place which I have to say was a great find! We decided against the usual pain au chocolat and coffee (despite how much it killed me not too haha) and tried something different. I had avocado on toast which was so tasty and filling too, plus I'm obsessed with avocados these days so it was right up my street, along with some freshly squeezed orange juice. My mum had the granola and yoghurt which was quite honestly the best granola I've ever tasted and it was presented beautifully. After that, the day was spent sightseeing and I finally visited the Pont des arts- it's quite amazing really to see it and think how many couples and lovers have came and put a lock on the bridge...there were so many, even on the lamppost...and I have no idea how they got up there! The rest of the day just consisted of a lot of walking and a lot of spending money. It cost us 11 € for an Orangina and apple juice  in a café - that's ridiculous, am I right or am I right?! 


Oh, and I came across this Acne Studios window display which I just loved so had to snap it as well...I am in love with Acne clothing.

And that's a wrap really. If you're heading to Paris, I'd definitely recommend the places I mentioned above... the only thing I'd say is bring your comfiest shoes (even crocs would have been better than the 'trying to keep stylish' pumps I was wearing) and bring plenty of money. Paris is crazy expensive but sooo worth the visit!
