Paris Diaries: Day 3

Click here to read about Day 2.

Our third day began with toast and a trip to the Picasso museum. Picasso is my favourite artist so we had to go there. Plus, because France appears to be a country that gives back to its young people as opposed to rinsing them of thousands like some countries I could mention, we got into the museum as well as most other attractions - like the Louvre - for free.

For lunch, we went to Hank Burger, which you can think of as a vegan Gourmet Burger Kitchen BUT BETTER. I would genuinely go to Paris just for a Hank Burger lunch and then come home. Also, the interior was white, grey and yellow, with copper accents, distressed wood and adorable mismatched cushions. It was like my brain threw up. They could've had better lighting for the Instagram hipsters like myself but I won't hold it against them.


As we'd done the biggest things on our list (the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower...) we decided to go back to the apartment for what I like to call Naps & Snacks™. We were exhausted from visiting so many places in such a short amount of time, and our lunch had been rather large... you know you're getting old when you have to nap after you've eaten. Life comes at you fast.

Once it was dark and we'd eaten dinner (4-minute noodles with boiling water as the only requirement, yes please and thank you) we made a spontaneous trip to the Arc de Triomphe which turned out to be amazing not only because we got in for free yet again, but also because of the view. Before the trip, I'd assumed that going up the Eiffel Tower would be my favourite bit, but you can't see the tower... from the tower. You can see it from the Arc de Triomphe though, and it looks incredible, especially when it sparkles (which happens for a couple of minutes on the hour, every hour, after sunset.)

By that point it was getting on for midnight, so we made our way back to the apartment ready for our final day...

Check back tomorrow for day 4!
