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


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.


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。

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




Department of Law


Notre Dame


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.


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


(Not the Champs Elysee)


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.


The real Champs Elysee


A cup of chocolate chaud to warm us up.


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.


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


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!

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar.

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.

Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.

Talk soon!
