It's Spring Break

I know I always say this but last month just flew by. I honestly don't know where it went. I finally got over my cold and the my week of spring break that I had been looking forward to for so long is almost coming to an end. It's been quite a whirlwind of everything this past week.
My friend came down to visit this week and we explored Paris during the three days she was here.


Brunch at Trocadero.


We walked to Arc de Triomphe and wandered down Champs Élysée. It was quite freezing but thanks goodness it wasn't raining.

近くのArc de Triompheまで散歩してChamps Élysée 通りをウィンドウショッピングしました。大分冷えていたのですが、雨が降っていなくてラッキーでした。

Our 12km walk that day ended at Jardin de Tuileries. I thought my legs were gonna fall off.

Jardin des Tuileries の方まで散歩したのですが、1日目は12kmも歩いていました。数字を見て驚きました。

Day 2 began at Musée d'Orsay followed by brunch at a restaurant near my school. I had heard that it was quite good there so it was a good opportunity to stop by.

2日目はMusée d'Orsayに行ってからブランチ。大学の前のカフェなのですが、美味しいと聞いていたので行きたいなーと思っていた場所です。

I've found that cheesecakes aren't very common here in France so I had to order it when I saw it on the menu. It was SO good.


Notre Dame

3rd and last day was a trip to Sacre Cœur and we saw an entire landscape or Paris from the dome. It was breathtakingly beautiful. A must see place for anyone visiting.

3日目はSacré Cœurに行ってきました。教会の上のドームからパリを見渡せることができました。晴れて良かったです。

Beautiful macaroons at a chocolate store nearby.

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!
