The third day in Paris was spent with a lot more walking and visiting landmarks such as the Jardins du Luxembourg, le Panthéon, the Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Basilica, Forum des Halles, and Galleries Lafayette. We also walked down rue Saint-Honoré, which is full of boutiques like Colette where you will find really unique fashion and random trinkets. I loved walking around everywhere because we saw a lot more of the city and discovered so many quaint streets.
My sister and I opted for lighter lunches every day. We would get veggies from a grocery store, various charcuterie and cheese from local shops, and of course baguette and pastries from a boulangerie. We had our daily picnics in different spots. Our picnic location today was outside of the Louvre where we sat for a while, soaking in the sun, the people and our amazing surroundings – a truly memorable moment to just sit and realize the beautiful city we were in, which was made even better because of the person I was sharing it with.
For dinner, we chose a restaurant close to our hotel, Le Plomb du Cantal, where we had an incredible meal. We shared a huge salad, delicious fries, and the pièce de resistance: partially mashed potatoes cooked in a pot with cheese, chopped onions and some garlic…drool. The waiter came to our table with the pot hot from the stove and poured it into our plate – so fun! I love a meal that comes with an ‘experience’.
