We will always have Paris…: Part 2
September 2, 2010
 

Well the time has come… Time to spend our last 2 days in Paris and on our trip of a lifetime :(

Yesterday was my birthday, so we spent the day shopping (so good!) we bought so much we have had to buy extra suitcases, hopefully we can take them as carry on :) We also took some photos as we shopped till we dropped. Galleries Lafayette is the craziest department store I have ever seen, and Hermes felt like we needed a trust fund when we walked in so we didn’t stay long. We also graced Zara (my new favourite) and H&M (both our new favourites).

For my birthday dinner our friends Nat and Renaud who we stayed with at the start of our Paris leg booked their favourite resturant Le Petit Prince. It was in the Latin Quarter right near the Pantheon so we took some photos at sunset of the building and also the street looking down to the Eiffel Tower. Dinner was amazingly good! We only managed to get a shot of dessert (chocolate puddings) as we all quickly ate our mains. I had the most amazing pork dish I have ever eaten and Michael had beef. (no snails or frogs legs on the menu, doesn’t seem to be as “popular” as people think)
