It's a tough task to write about my ten-day trip, so I have decided to break it up in different ways to ease the writing, as well as the reading. :)
First post: a trip overview!
Thursday: Got safely to the airport, and eventually to Paris even with the Huelga.
The essence of hipster before hipster existed.
Thought it was a little sad that this bookstore/library
used to be a place where brilliant minds came together
and discussed brilliant things while reading brilliant books,
but today almost everyone, including me, come to snap
a couple of pictures and leave.
Truly is something.
Highlight: Shakespeare and Company; Notre Dame.
Downer: watched "Les adieux à la reine." 1) It was completely in French and 2) to this day I have no idea what the point of the movie was.
Highlight: It's Versailles. Need I say more?
Downer: It was really cold.
1st macaroons done the right, Parisian way.
Highlight: this day was PERFECT.
Downer: this day was PERFECT.
Even better macaroons.
Highlight: the Louvre
Downer: So many freakin' tourists. Not just tourists, but tour groups.
Highlight: Awesome dinner at Montmartre.
Downer: Pretty much a big fail other than dinner.
*Note, interesting stories to come about this particular day.*
Gotta have a baguette when in Paris!
Highlight: fell in love with a museum. No joke. I love Musee d'Orsay. But the layout of it sucks. Also got to see Sainte Chapelle.
Downer: last day in Paris.
Highlight: LONDON! And the Cabinet War Museum!
Downer: London is expensive. And really cold.
Rosetta Stone. No biggie.
PLATFORM 9 3/4!!
Highlights: British Museum
Downer: Did I mention London is expensive??
The best coffee I have ever had.
Highlight: BOROUGH MARKET. I would go back to London for Borough Market.
Downer: Didn't get to do afternoon tea as we intended.
Didn't even mean to watch the changing
of the guards...
Afternoon tea. :)
Highlight: Easter service, afternoon tea, Easter egg hunt (?), seeing London.
Downer: had to leave this fabulous place. Most definitely want to come back.
More detailed events to come later :)
