Our Day in Paris

We decided to visit Paris for the first time today, and to be honest I thought I would hate it. I thought it would be big and hot and crowded, that people would be rude and that we would get lost, but it wasn't and I loved it.

We didn't want to do too many things during out first visit, and we really wanted to find this gluten free store that we found online last night. So we woke up early this morning, got in the car and drove to Paris...

We started the morning by walking around a bit until we found a boat tour that went down the Seine. It was nice, not too long and we got to see most things from a very interesting angle.

When we got off the boat, it was time for lunch. We walked around a bit and found a cute little restaurant to eat in... more on this tomorrow...

When we were leaving the restaurant, I asked the waiter if he knew where we could find the gluten free store, it was just two metro rides away. We hopped on to the metro and got to the store,unfortunately only to find that it had already closed for the day.

We walked around that neighbourhood for a bit, and luckily we ended up finding, a different natural food store that stocked loads of gluten free things as well! So we were in luck. We celebrated with a coffee in a local cafe, and then hoped back on to the metro and rode it to the car's parking spot.

As we drove out of the city we drove past the famous Arc de Triomphe and back home to Belgium.

I loved Paris, I especially loved how easy it was to get around by the metro. I loved how everyone was much more helpful than I could have ever expected and I loved how much fun Alara had there. We can't wait to go back!

  1. Our journey has begun!… secretly though

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!
