Travel Diary: Highlights of Paris Day 2 sightseeing

20150816_185430

In this Travel Diary I am taking you guys with me on Day 2 of my Paris trip of last year. On this second day I was all by myself and decided to do some sightseeing. After getting ready and making my hostel bed, I took the metro from my starting point Gare de Lyon to Bastille.

Arrived at Bastille, I wondered around the market, walked around the streets a little and had a sandwich at a Subway in the neighborhood. Luckily for me, I could charge my phone there, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to take all these photos the rest of the day and share with you. When I was done in Bastille, I went to the Place de Vosges park again, where I just chilled on a bench for a while and fed some doves, before making my way to the Notre-Dame church.

La Tour Eiffel! You haven’t really been to Paris until you visit this baby

On my way to the Notre-Dame, I shot some pictures of the city in all its Parisian glory. After admiring the enormous historical church and doing a mini outfit shoot, I also visited the beautiful garden in the back, which led me to a love lock bridge. Of course I had to check out this phenomenon and take pictures of it. Then it was time to head to the mother of all attractions: la Tour Eiffel! You haven’t really been to Paris until you visit this baby. Like I said in my Solo to Paris post, I walked all the way from the Notre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower and what a long walk that was. While strolling alongside the Seine River, I came across beautiful art pieces and souvenirs, sold by sales people from their little sales booth by the river, and I couldn’t help but getting me a lil’ something. To remind me of the walk from Notre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower, I got myself a placemat with a drawing of each of these buildings on one side. How cool was that! Just walking and taking everything in made me feel so Alive. How I love this city! There is a reason why people say Paris Je t’aime.

When I finally reached my destination, it was time to take some snapshots (selfies!) and then treat myself to a nice big cheesy pizza at a place near by the river, followed by a Crêpe for dessert. With some food in my stomach, I ended my second day at The Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Aaah Memories!

With eve more pictures then Day 1, I hope you enjoy scrolling through the Travel Diary of Day 2.

During the summer time there is this thing called Paris Plages, where there are beach themed activities around the city. Personally I didn’t visit these activities, but I wanted to take a picture of a so called beach side and share it with you. In case you’re in Paris during summer, you may come across this:

Check out the placemat, that I got myself as a souvenir, on the table. Maybe a next time I will show it to you from the other side, but on these photos I only have the Eiffel Tower side showing, giving the fact that it was my view during my dinner:

After a long but satisfied solo sightseeing day, which lasted until after midnight, I sure slept like a baby that night.
