So onto day two!

Picking up where we left off. We went to sleep and woke up surprise, surprise – IN PARIS! We got dressed for the day and met Megan again before popping to the Patisserie for Pain au Chocolat breakfasts – my favourite. And yes, they do taste nicer in France. Think crisp and flakier on the outside, yet soft and buttery in the middle mmm I wish I could eat one right now. We then hopped on the metro and made our way to Jardin du Palais-Royal.

Now it may look like a simple coincidence that Susan and I are wearing stripes, but it was totally planned lol. After taking many a photograph and strolling around the garden we went to check out the Eiffel Tower up close. Huge and grey it looked magnificent against the blue skies.

We then had a bit of a wander looking for lunch and passed through a few markets such as Les Floralies, boulangeries and fruit stalls with fresh orange juice machines. It was here my peach hunt mission came to fruition – pun intended lol. I purchased said peach and eventually we settled on a restaurant. I ordered one of the things I was most looking forward to – a croque monsieur. So simple but incredibly delicious and due to my strong love for coca-cola I spent an extra 5 euros on a glass lol. The struggle.

Feeling boujee…

…we decided to get gel nails done at a salon for the first time before grabbing ice creams and taking in more views of Tour Eiffel. Please note the ice cream Susan is holding resembling a poop emoji was what I first got, and the double swirl was what I wanted hahaha. Don’t worry though, the poop ice cream was consumed by Megan – no food waste here. And my second ice cream was super, creamy and tasty (more so than the first) – perfect in the hot weather.

On my mum’s orders we visited the Sacré-Cœur – more steps, the horror! Outside was absolutely packed with people enjoying the views and I was stunned by the hundreds of candles in the interior. We were able to catch the sunset before eating dinner at an outdoor restaurant in the dark. And I learned my only French phrase of the trip – ‘je suis prêt à manger’ – thanks Megan hahah. If you’re wondering, I had a french onion soup as it’s one of my Dad’s favourites. But I now know it’s not one of mine ha!

So that’s about it for day two! Don’t forget to come back soon for day three – the final installment!

But for now, enjoy the photographs below:
