Paris through my Iphone

With our proper tour guide, my brother, we've wandered through Paris effortless. It's such a bliss when you don't have to constantly look on your map or look where you're going and just trust on someone who knows where to go. We've visited all the landmarks. It's so impressive to finally see them in real life, when you've heard so many people talking about it and seen so many photos. I couldn't stop making photos at the Sacre Coeur, the view was amazing.


Next stop was the Louvre. Which isn't just the pyramid what everyone is talking about, the place is god damn huge. It's impossible to see everything in one day, so we chose 3 departments we wanted to see. I have to say, the building is incredible and it's all really beautiful. But I don't recommend going there during the summer. The place is crowded with tourists, it's not even funny anymore. I went slightly mental in there and was relieved when we finally left.
What my brother forgot to mention is that he lives on the sixth floor without an elevator in the building. I don't know if that's a French kinda thing, but let me tell you. Those stairs were killing! I took this photo while catching my breath..
What better way to start your day in Paris then eating a croissant from Paul. The smell in there was amazing, fresh baked baguettes, macarons, croissants, you name it. I chose the Almond Croissant.
I made this photo at the Louvre. I was able to find a free spot in that sea of tourists. I just had to take a break, short after that we decided to leave and go back to the appartement for a lunch break. I'm also wearing my new dress from Monki in this photo. 
After arriving back home we decided to get creative in the kitchen. We made a homemade quiche with tomatoes, union and zucchini. We also bought a fresh baguette and ate it with a bit of humous. And may I not forget the glasses of Rosé. For the first time in life I visited a city where the wine is cheaper than a glass of coca cola. Oh how I love Paris.
I wanted to have a little souvenir to take back home. So instead of buying a cheesy little eiffel tower I decided to buy a few macarons. They're bloody expensive, but believe me, they're worth it. Also the little box that came with it, is nice to save as a little reminder of this lovely trip!
I'm going to be quite honest with you now. I don't know if I'm the only one who experienced this, but I have to say that it's pretty difficult to find a good place to eat in Paris. Unless you're willing to pay a good amount of money. We had to search for a long time to find a good spot, but we found one eventually. A nice Italian place where they served the best pastas. I went for a pasta with sundried tomatoes and mozzarella. You can't make me more happy than with a good plate of pasta.

That was my trip to Paris in a nutshell. I had a great time and was very happy to have this quality time with my family again. I can't wait for our next get together.

loves,
Lara

  2. Ohhh wat fantastisch, zo'n Parijs local in je familie!! Lijkt me geweldig, haha. Die trappen zijn wel weer wat minder, maar op de foto ziet het er wel heel tof uit, haha. Ik hou zo veel van Parijs! En Montmartre is echt mijn favoriete buurt, ik maak ook altijd zo veel foto 's bij de Sacre Coeur! Prachtig :D
