one of our stops was the Galerie Lafayette! I didn’t have plans to shop in this gigantic, super fancy department store! it’s def. not my type of place! but, many of our friends suggested we went up to the terrace in the top floor for the view of Paris! and it was well worth it!
we also tried to have a nice picnic by the Torre Eiffel – I think this first day was 100% touristy! But I’m in love with it! we shopped at this nearby market, got a few bottles of wine, bread, cheeses, Danette, some other deliciousness and biked back to the tower!
it’s a shame I don’t have a picture from our picnic! it was so cold and windy, we didn’t stay longer! we ate and biked back home along the seine! it was fantastic though, we pick up the sunset by the river and it was gorgeous!
over all, it was a pretty incredible day! I had my first Pierre Hermé macaroons and they were as amazing as everyone says! maybe even more amazing! we biked in Paris, I saw the Arc du Triumph, the Eiffel Tower, the gorgeous Galerie Lafayette and had the best time with my love! that night I slept! I slept like I was dead! I was so happy!
