Oh yeah! Paris! Remember that little trip I mentioned? Heh. 😛 This post has been looming over me, mostly because I have so many pictures to choose from. Once I looked through the ones I have, I realized it just wouldn’t be fair to cut them all down to one annoyingly long post, so I’m going to do this a day at a time. Here it goes. (Click on the first picture to flip through!)
It was a 2-hour flight from Madrid to Paris. The French-speaking crew forced me to FINALLY realize I’m in Europe.
Luckily, I found Erin! Roomie reunion in Paris began smoothly!
This man made our morning by giving us fantastic Nutella crepes. I’m still drooling.
We got baby coffees that would fit in the bottom 1/4 of our coffee cups at home.
Stereotype that I’m glad was fulfilled: Paris is FULL of adorable little parks, and there are bikers galore.
I found the Argentine place!!
The tiny streets seem like they’re for pedestrians/bikers first and cars second.
Our walking tour of the city took us to Notre Dame… which had a bread party going on in front of it. Literally.
On the Seine, there are boats. Surprise! But the real surprise is that a bunch of them have entire gardens and patio areas on them. Buy me one?
The Love Lock Bridge! I was a fan of the creativity with a bike lock here.
ROLLER BLADING COPS. Why don’t we have them?
Here’s my required touristy picture near the Louvre!
We strolled through the Tuileries gardens like the locals. At least, I think locals do that.
People were chilling by the fountains in lawn chairs, as they should.
THEN we went to Angelina…
… where hot chocolate is a way of life. How good was it? Well, if we hadn’t sucked it down so fast, it would’ve hardened. Take from that what you will.
BAM! Out of nowhere, we were at the Eiffel Tower.
Pretty jam-packed day, right? I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was absolutely fantastic. France won me over from the start. That actually means something coming from the girl who used to say that Europe was “too cliché” to want to go see. I mean, I still talk about South America ALL the time, but the few areas of Europe that I’ve seen so far are pretty freaking cool. It deserves the hype. More Paris to come soon!
P.S. – As you can see, I decided to do pictures a little differently than normal because it was easier. Let me know if you hate this format or not so I don’t make anyone angry. There should be no reason to be angry while talking about amazing trips!
