Musée National de Moyen Age

I am on quite a roll with my mission to visit as many museums as I can in Paris - I took an hour and a half before and after my class today and visited 2 museums. I'll be sharing my visit to the Musee de Moyen Age which was the one I went to this morning.
You may have already guessed but this museum is based around the Middle Ages in Europe and the building itself is actually one from that time. This completely blew me away because despite its rather cute, storybook like exterior, there are not only the regular wooden flooring rooms but also floor-to-ceiling-made-of-stone rooms that made me question whether I was still in the same building.
Like most other educated individuals, I started studying the Middle Ages in elementary school and I don't know how to say it without sounding a bit stupid, but I've always struggled to view this era as something that actually existed. It was more of childhood story-esque period (am I making any sense here???) but that can be said for any history before the 19th century to be honest. It was interesting to see this age "come to life" through countless artifacts and for me to finally realize that yes, this Age was not just words in a history book.
Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I recommend it to anyone who's interested in slipping back in time for a while.

ます最初はMusee de Moyen Ageというヨーロッパの中世紀を遺品やアートを見物できる場所です。

Old Chess Board.


This was the first time I saw stained glass windows literally right in front of my face. I didn't realize how much work was put into each of the very detailed pieces.



  1. 中世紀にこんな技術があったなんてほんとに驚かされるね。今だったら古いものを見て真似ができるけど、その時代ってイメージとかで作り始めるんだもの。先代達は偉いね。

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!
