sunshine


One of the few moments it's been sunny here in Berlin, mostly it's been way colder than I was expecting. But I bought a cute green/orange/blue parka today so I guess something good has come from it. Headed to Amsterdam tomorrow but right now I'm trying to muster up the energy to go out and get dinner and maybe even hit da clubz for my last night in Berlin :)

Berlin


Arrived in Berlin yesterday and am staying in the cutest apartment. Today I just went for a walk, got some pizza and bought some books. Now to read them in my delicious bed, night!

Giverny

I know, perfect tree star right?

I went to Giverny today and I can already tell it's going to be one of the highlights of my trip. It's about an hour by train and bus from Paris, and it's home to Monet's house, garden and waterlilly ponds.

It was so incredible to stand on Monet's Japanese bridge and explore the beautiful gardens, but I also wandered around the town itself which is so gorgeous and charming. I absolutely need to start travelling to the country more often.

As a bonus I got to have two of my favourites: Crepes (with butterscotch sauce and ice cream! Normally I get lemon and sugar) and lemon meringue pie.

chocolat chaud


Walked all around Monmartre today, visited the Sacré Cœur and finally found a proper op-shop with really cheap stuff. All of the other ones I've visited so far have been more like vintage stores with carefully selected stock. I went to the coolest one yesterday that sold their clothes by weight! But I'm glad I found a regular one today though, I bought some flat black boots and a tshirt.

This is my hot chocolate from when I stopped at a cafe for a break (had to stop here because of the aqua tables and chairs!).

vintage shopping


Had an action-packed day starting off at the Eiffel Tower. Stopped at a cafe for pizza, went for a bit of a bike ride, then found this amazing vintage shop slash African bar and restaurant hidden away down an alley, and finally went for a drink at an Irish pub.

planning


Went to the Galeries Lafayette and had a look in a vintage shop yesterday. I looked for more vintage shops on Google but unfortunately couldn't find them. I also wanted to try 'the best lemon tart in Paris' but when I got there they said you had to order a minimum of four which would cost about $40 :(

At night I headed to the Champs Elysees to catch a movie :)

Now I really need to book some flights and accommodation for Berlin and Amsterdam!

bonjour!


I wandered along the Seine to the Eiffel Tower a few days ago. They were doing some cool activities along the water and there was a man making these awesome psychedelic chalk drawings on a huge blackboard. On the way I stopped at the Pont des Arts to look at the love locks. They filmed the final scene of Now You See Me there there too! Also got some Nutella which sadly didn't live longer than 24 hours.

Paris


In my Paris apartment! I love this place it's so cute. It has a loft bed so I like to open up all the windows to let the breeze and street noise in and chill up in my bed reading French magazines (Grazia today).

Today I also went and saw a French movie called Jeune et Jolie which was nice although I didn't understand it all. I am trying hard to revive my high school French though... let me know if you have any language tips!

souvenirs


I got some awesome crystals and this notebook at the Natural History Museum. Also just finished reading The Fault In Ours Stars which was written beautifully,  I really enjoyed it.
