I’ve been planning to share some photos of my trip to Paris for a while! You may have seen some on Instagram already – these are from February, when I went on a romantic long weekend across the Channel with my boyfriend. We stayed right in the middle of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in a friend’s spare flat, and it wasn’t until we got there that we realised how perfect the location was. The neighbourhood is full of art galleries and famous old cafés, including an adorable little Ladurée shop right around the corner. We barely took the metro and spent hours walking along the Seine and across the Pont des Arts (the one with all the lovers’ padlocks) towards the lovely neighbourhood of the Marais.
This is what the Eiffel Tower looks like from underneath!
The reason why we chose to go to Paris that weekend is actually because Chris wanted to see Wales play against France in rugby at the Stade de France. Now I’m not a huge fan of the sport but it was pretty cool to see the stadium packed with rugby fans, and the rest of the weekend was mostly spent doing what I enjoy: eating and shopping. We found some really great places that I need to share with you, but I’ll save those for another post!
