SO! Im in the sweet city of love - PARIS! This post is going to be a long one, purely because I have so much to write about; and also becaue I'm freaked out by the weird french keyboard? and it's taking me incredibly long to type even the smallest sentance haha. I think the best Idea is to jot down my days per post. I have so much to talk about!
After a long delayed journey by train to Paris (2 hours in the euro tunnel, before you ask, thank you track problems) we arrived to clouds, rain, and the clak clak of an army of high heeled glamourous parisian women, striding through the station with Vuitton bags clutched under their arms. It was quite a comfort after suffering though the loud, rasping breathing of the guy opposite me, as well as the constant banter between two fashion directors behind my seat. It's so lovely when you first step out to the crowded station though, totally worth it. Paris is so incredibly different, and much prettier than London, as well as being full of such unique people. My mother and I spent the remainder of the afternoon travelling around, and getting lost in the city, which had its highs and lows. We had lunch at a pretty cafe, constantly stopped off for snacks at cute little Patisseries, walked through the Louvre, watched a service at The Notre Dame and got lost, of course. Thankfully, my mother being fluent in frech helped a little. .We did manage to get back to our Hotel, but only after stumbling across a lone taxi.
I rekindled my intense love for macaroons after almost buying out the whole of LA DUREE, and embarrassed myself by skipping down the street with my mouth full of rose petal and orange blossom macaroon One of the weirdest things I saw though, that I've never seen before, were the pet shops. They sell tiny puppies and kittens! Its such a strange thing for a londoner like me to go into a tiny pet shop, and find dozens of little yapping dogs all around you. It might seem strange to you all to have me distressed and all, but they all looked so sad! I was tempted to smash all the cages and run down the streets with a small army of animals running after me though... Plus I found out that I had walked almost 7 miles. Thats more exercise for me than a whole years worth! Stay tuned for the next thrilling chapter *insert triumphant music* but for me now, its a nice big cup of chocolat chaud, and of course, a macaroon.....
and lastly, well done to EMMA for winning my giveaway! You'll receive an email soon.... Panda xo
