Palais Garnier

What do you think of when you think of Paris: Eiffel Tower? The Louvre? Musée d’Orsay? There are many monuments, museums and places in Paris which are all worthy of visiting.

Take a little time at Trocadéro

With a bit of time having elapsed since my last post on here, and only a few weeks remaining in Paris before I return to the homeland (& to where avocado brunch and Dairy Milk caramel aren’t rare gems!!), I’m keen to update on everything which I have discovered over these past few months. So, as the title… Continue reading Take a little time at Trocadéro

Having taken a break from discussing the best parts of Paris to save for when I can blog about my explorations once I move back in a few weeks’ time (suggestions welcome!), I’ve decided to write about one of the best cafés I’ve been to, which can be found in the quaint little ‘city’ of… Continue reading ‘Flat White makes my coffee’
