Our second day in France, we woke up to a breakfast of jam and bread – a staple in every French household. I suddenly missed my Filipino rice meal, but when in Paris… Right?
After freezing in the castle grounds of Chantilly the day before, I was ready to brave the cold and wore the thickest jacket I had. Weather seemed to have turned in our favor though, and the sun was shining throughout the day – a perfect time to walk around Paris.
Warning: Photo-heavy Post
Waiting for the train at Sarcelles Saint-Brice.
Parc des Buttes-Chaumont’s Sybille Temple… We spotted two kids fearlessly climbing to the top. It was closed for the day but that didn’t deter their adventurous spirit. I just hope they didn’t get into any accidents.
Stopped by this cool café/bar called Rosa Bonheur named after the French painter, but is also loosely translated to “Pink Happiness”.
Paris always seem to have the quaintest store fronts. This one is a boutique for all things baby related.
This is a small fish meat store, which I’m not sure is still open.
Want to be eco-friendly but love drinking wine? Fear not! This wine store is where you can bring your own container to fill up so no more empty bottles in the trash.
After walking around the streets of Paris, we ended up in Pére Lachaise. A cemetery where France’s most famous people are buried.
We got a bit lost looking for Oscar Wilde’s tomb.
When we found it, most of the lipstick marks were gone… Save for the ones on top where people can reach behind the glass barricade.
By accident, we found the grave of Jim Morrison, with chewing gums stuck on the tree and bracelets tied around the metal posts.
Jet-lagged and tired, Pére Lachaise was our last major attraction of the day.
