I had a ball of a time. I was walking alone for most of Friday as Jo had to work but the me time so was precious and serene. I like my own company which some people find difficult for themselves. I passed some serious iconic landmarks, kicking through the brown leaves and even took some time to visit a museum and sketch a little. When Jo was free the rest of the weekend consisted of more walking, eating plenty of cheese, drinking red wine and finding the Kenzo store to by my New Era cap.
The cost to travel there from London was cheap as chips too as I decided to take the 8hr bus which is long but still pleasant especially when you can sleep for most of it. Travel once there is pretty good too as firstly you can actually walk to most places as Paris is quite small, but the cost of a bundle of 10 single tickets is not costly either! I have grouped some of the little things that may interest any of you guys reading this if planning on visiting there any time soon. It really is a must see place. Bisous Paris, til next time.
1. Musee de Quai Branly. I spent 3 hours looking through their Asian, Oceanic, African and Americas collections. They have impressive statues, fabrics, costumes and paintings from each region. It is full of multimedia too with videos and interviews played throughout. A stunning edit of pieces on show there.
2. Eurolines! I spend £50 quid return, thats cheaper then going up North! If planned correcly, you can fall asleep in Central London and wake up in the centre of Paris.
3. Cafe Lomi. A new coffee joint a found near to my friend's flat. I had a nice Rwandan filter and it was clean and crisp. It is located north of Gare du Nord.
4. Au P'Tit Grec. THE BEST CREPES EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5. Ten Belles, an old favourite Coffee spot with some pretty tasty baked goods located off Canal St Martin.
6. Hotel du Nord. Swanky Restaurant with a chic bar with some potent Cocktails on offer.
