Musée de Picasso

One of the greatest things about France is that students get to enter museums for free (for the most part, otherwise cheaper than the original price). This blew me away considering how many museums are present in Paris alone and I am a bit ashamed to admit that I didn't realize this until this year. I've visited most of the major tourist spots but I have yet to uncover all of the other beauties that this city has to offer and so, I am making February my "visit museums (and other spots)" month - basically a "let's spend more times outside of my apartment" month. I have been getting too comfortable with he warmth and comfort of my room in contrast to the cold outdoors.
Anyways, I kicked off this month of museum visits with the Musée de Picasso and I have an extremely enjoyable experience there. I brought my passport with my visa, which got me through the gates for free and I got to experience this legend's life story through his arts and artifacts. There was an area that displayed a video of Picasso painting as well as several other ones that left me wonderstruck - I've always loved watching videos on how things are made and I think this was one of those moments.
If you're a student in Paris, take advantage of it and visit the museum because it will be worth it. If you're not a student, well, you'll enjoy it just the same.



  1. 私は絵画を見て感想が言えないという悲しい人間なのですが美術館には入る方だと思います。ピカソといえば箱根美術館で見ました。樋上先生と仲間3人で旅行した時です。常設か期間限定かも覚えていません。顔が重複してたり体の部分も定位置じゃないけど絵になってるよね。学生無料は幸せだね。

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!
