So onto day three!
From the previous days sight seeing and numerous steps made wearing my new topshop sandals – which I love! – we were pretty exhausted. And since it was the hottest day of our trip we decided to have a lazy day and enjoy the endless blue skies. After buying our usual breakfast pain au chocolat’s we hopped on the metro again. Story time: whilst ordering my pain au, I noticed some miniature ones which I proceeded to attempt to order in French. But apparently my years 7-9 high school level French isn’t as good as I thought, as the lady had to get the English speaking girl to serve me lol. I tried.
…we wandered through Marché biologique Raspail before ending up in Jardin du Luxembourg. Whilst here we couldn’t help but notice lots of people carrying McDonalds bags. And yes. Despite being in Paris, full of incredible food on every street, we followed the crowds and went to Maccy D’s, or as the french say – Mcdo. And speaking of french – uh hello, french fries??? With our Big Mac meals in tow, we found a patch of grass to suit all of our needs – sun and shade – and tucked into our fancy picnics. After chilling in the Jardin and letting our food babies rest, we decided to check out the Louvre. I had always thought the pyramid was really small, but surprisingly it was huge in real life! Sadly, however, all the tickets had sold out and I did not get to see Mona.
And after wandering around again we found ourselves in yet another park where we chilled for the rest of the day and I ate an incredible crepe mmm. I really think there should be more Creperies in England! So so so good. We then went for dinner before saying goodbye to Megan and heading back to the apartment.
The next day we packed up, grabbed our pain au chocolats, fresh orange juice, baguettes and barbecue Lays crisps before heading back to Gare du Nord. Again I made sure to get my passport stamped before going back to England, in time for a cheeky Nando’s. No lie.
Here are a few more photographs!
So that was my very first trip abroad! I plan to make a travel journal book when I have spare time so of course I needed some physical copies of my snaps. I used Printiki who were super quick and easy to use. The prints come in a range of options such as the size and style – great if you’re into the Polaroid look. I went for a medium square, glossy print with a thin border*. I love instagram and my blog, but sometimes it’s nice to have a photograph you can hold, you know? If you’re interested in printing photos, definitely check out Printiki’s website, or browse their instagram for inspo!
The only question now is – where should I go next?
Thank you for reading,
