#laststopparis

Our Germany trip was over but my friend stopped by in Paris before going back to the UK where she's studying abroad!

今回のドイツ旅行は終わってしまいましたが、留学先のイギリスに戻る前に、友達がパリに来てくれました!


We arrived pretty late in Paris and we were both really tired so we decided to just call it a night and see each other again the next day. I absolutely love that feeling of coming home after being out for  a long time.

前日の夜にパリに着いたということで、その日はわたしはアパート、友達にホテルでゆっくりしました。やっぱり自分の部屋が一番落ち着きますね。

We met up at the Latin Quarter, which is where my university is located.

次の日は朝からLatin Quarterで待ち合わせ。
大学の近くなので、周りをぶらぶらしました。


Jardin du Luxembourg. I can't believe ID didn't take more photos but it's a beautiful place full of nature.

近くの多きな公園です。残念ながら写真がないのですが、自然を楽しめるとてもキレイな場所です。


Pantheon

パンテオン


Department of Law

法学部のビル


Notre Dame

ノートルダム。初めてしっかり全角度から見ました。




My friend had been telling me that she hasn't had good Japanese food in a while so we stopped by the restaurant that I work at for some Gyudon, Katsu Curry and Gyoza. Pretty heavy for a breakfast but we were both very happy after a week of living off of bread, sausages, and beer.

美味しい日本食が全く食べれていないと友達が言っていたので、わたしのバイト先で遅めの朝ごはんを食べました。ガッツリ牛丼とカツカレーと餃子をいただきました。



Walking off all the food with a trip to the Louvre.

たくさん食べた分歩こうということでルーブル美術館の外に立ち寄り。。。



(Not the Champs Elysee)

(シャンゼリゼじゃないよ~)


Paris (maybe other cities as well?) has chairs sitting around at parks that are located in various parts of the city for people to sit, lounge, and enjoy the view. This is something I have come to love about the city but was kind of bizarre at first, especially coming from two very capitalistic countries like the US and Japan where I feel like there's a constant pressure to keep moving.
Enjoying another sit and talk session.


パリでは(他もそうなのかな?)公園などに行くとこうやって椅子が並べられていて座ってゆっくりできる場所がたくさんあります。ここでまた少しゆっくり。


The real Champs Elysee

これが本物のシャンゼリゼ。


A cup of chocolate chaud to warm us up.

寒かったのでチョコラ・ショーでちょっと温まりました。


It was a bit far since we were walking but we made it to the Eiffel Tower!
Sitting above the fountains for a photo-taking/talk session.

歩くと大分遠かったけど、エッフェル塔着いたー!






Before we knew it, the sky was turning darker and we went down to see the tower from below.

気づいたら日も暮れ初めていました。下からのエッフェル塔が見たいということで行ってみました。



Next day was sadly my friend's last day in Paris.
Spent the morning together over some brunch.
Can't wait to see you again in the summer!

次の日。寂しいけどお別れの日。
一緒にブランチをしました。
次会えるのが楽しみー!
