Paris Day 1

Hello there lovely readers! School took me on a little trip to Paris on the 26th and 27th and I took some snapshots on both days. Here's my little report of day one, the rainy one. Enjoy!

A long and rainy trip to Paris: it took us some traffic jams but after a couple of hours, we finally arrived.
I don't know how this part is called but we had about 20 minutes of free time here 'to experience the architecture': we only spotted a New Look so we spent our time there. Girls will be girls.
When we arrived at the hotel we had some time to unpack our bags - I only brought a backpack so I didn't need much time - so we went to buy a toothbrush (guess who forgot hers..) and explored the street we were in for a bit.

 Time to go to Centre Pompidou!
I like museums for interior inspiration. Is that sad? Haha!

Look at this lamp...

Empty escalators are so calming.
Time to grab some dinner! We had pizza in a very shady restaurant because we couldn't find anything else that was affordable. It was really delicious though.
I'm still having an internal debate whether or not I like the Eiffel Tower (I mean, is it really beautiful?) but I really liked it by night.

Time to go back to our hotel! We were all very tired but we had a nice day. I liked visiting Centre Pompidou: I'd never been there before. The rest of the day consisted mainly of traveling and waiting but that didn't matter - we were in Paris! Have you ever been to Paris? Let me know! Much love, Sjoukje


  1. It looks lovely there! I've been to disney land paris when I was younger and I went on a day trip to a theme park there with my school which was actually 3 days because of travel x

  2. I think Paris is a little overrated.. maybe I'd have to visit again and give it another try!
    Absolutely beautiful photos though :) X

  3. What beautiful pictures! Paris is one of my favourite places in the world and these pictures have made me want to be there right now! The Eiffel Tower at night is so incredible!

  4. Looks lovely, I've yet to go to Paris but would love to go one day, hope you had a lovely time x

  5. De foto van de Eiffeltoren is fantastisch. Lovely Paris. Mooie foto's.

  6. I'd so love to go to Paris! I've never been but I've heard I should go before I'm 26 as then a lot of museums and sights are for free. How lucky you are that your school took you there! :)

  7. Wow, beautiful photos! I'd love to visit Paris!

  8. I was lucky enough to go to Paris last December with 3 of my friends and it was amazing - looking through your photos really brought back so many memories. It looks as though you had a lovely time x

  9. Looks lovely! I was here a fortnight ago and Amsterdam too! Abi :)

  10. Wonderful photos!!! To be honest, I said the F word already after reading the title. And oh my goodness I was thinking that if I see the Eiffel Tower (which I am dying to see), and get disappointed, what will my life would be? Haha

    follow my adventures!

  11. Looks like a great day one. I loved this little foot verhaal of sorts ;)
    I have the same internal struggle you mention about the Eiffel Tower. I mean, I can admire that it is a nice architectural piece, but sometimes people swoon so hard over it and that I don't understand. In the evening when the lights come on though, it is very beautiful. I love light at night! So calming!

    Much Love,

  12. I went once to Paris, but only to visit a museum. We had a bit of free time, but not enough I think. Otherwise I really enjoyed my little trip.

    Nice pics by the way.
