PARIS: A Photo Diary! (#3)

Oh, Paris. My absolute FAVOURITE place in the world… well, besides Prague 😉

This trip was on one of the hottest days of the year so far. We’d had a heatwave all week in the north of France (where myself and my friend, who took many of the photos, live). So we dressed expecting to be absolutely boiling all day, and we were right.

I got home with tan lines, my makeup running down my face, and my shoulders burned to hell!!

I always wear boots when I travel because I always end up going into dirty side streets and climbing stuff so I need the protection but it was so hot that my feet were swelling inside my shoes which was just pure agony… we were in so much pain we had to take our shoes off in a cafe for them to de-swell… I know, so sexy. I don’t pretend my travels are always perfect 😛

Highlight of this trip was seeing two cute little ducks drinking from a puddle, and also seeing the happiness on my friends face – it was her first trip to Paris ever and she fell in love (like I knew she would).

Simple things!

We took fresh baguette, cheese and olive tapenade and ate under the Eiffel Tower in the sun, surrounded by blossom trees!

Pont Des Arts used to be completely covered in "Love Locks" but the integrity of the bridge became compromised so they were all removed. However, a few still remain!

The Eiffel Tower (la Tour Eiffel) really is my favourite architecture. I could talk about it for hours but I just think it's so beautiful how someone made iron/steel construction look so elegant.

We always take a mirror selfie in a window on every trip 😛

Beautiful flowers in the Jardin des Tuileries (very close to the Louvre). I love this time of year when all the flowers bloom!

This is a unique style of street art. Filling in broken parts of the floor with pieces of tile or broken ceramic. Cool, huh!

Best position for photos is peeking through the trees like a creeper 😉
It is also very important work, hence the serious face...

This is why I always have to wear boots whenever I travel... I always end up standing in mud, or standing in a river, or climbing over something... in fact wearing a white dress was pretty dangerous of me, and I did leave Paris with a massive mud stain on my ass because I sat on something (I'm not sure what).

So hard to believe this is in the centre of Paris! (just near the Trocadero to be exact)
