Paris

Paris was wonderful! Although my poor feet were so sore and were in dire need of a pedicure when I got back. We did so many things, including visiting Laduree (their hot chocolate is amazing, as are their cakes), going up the eiffel tower after queuing for over 2 hours, visiting the Pompidou centre (EU citizens under 26 get free entry!), having a picnic on the left bank watching the boats go by, eating lots of Bethillion ice cream (Scott became slightly obsessed with it), watching the bastille day fireworks from the Pantheon, going to Shakespeare & Co, going to the Scare Couer and being annoyed with all the 'tourist traps' and thinking it wasn't anything like in Amelie, wandering around the Pigalle and being asked if we want to see a 'show', having breakfast at Paul's bakery every morning and being embarassed by how badly we spoke French.

  2. Heh, I did say that the hot chocolate was superrich!! And Berthillon icecream was luckily something I only discovered later in the trip, so only got to try the rhubarb sorbet and the praline one. Looks beautiful!!

    Paris is the city of walking!! Despite going to the major city of food and eating a lot of chocolate, I managed to lose weight when I got back, purely from walking everywhere!

  10. I recommend going to the Sacre Coeur at night, less tourists and the view is even more astonishing when whole Paris is lit up.
    How did you like Centre Pompidou?
