eurotrip: paris VI

On our “supposedly” last day in Paris, we went to the Louvre which houses an extensive collection of paintings where the majority of the works were from royal and confiscated church properties. We weren’t able to see the entire museum unfortunately since we had other things on the agenda.



Afterward we went to drink hot chocolate and dine at Angelina . . . a restaurant where Coco Chanel used to hang back in the day. Kind of awesome. Kind of expensive. And the hot chocolate felt like I was drinking a melted chocolate bar. It was just that rich! If you ever go, I suggest sharing an order with someone. Don’t make the mistake I did! The desserts looked delicious, but I was too stuffed to indulge in any unfortunately!

Afterwards we went in search for chocolates in Paris. We landed at the infamous Patrick Roger after a long walk. The chocolate was ridiculously pricey so we didn’t get any.

On our last night at Paris, of course we had to go do some shopping at the fashion capital of the world. It would be a shame not to, right? We visited the Galeries Lafayette. Designer clothes and brand names galore!



When we got back to the hotel to take a break, we found out our flight to Rome got cancelled for the next day (all flights got cancelled due to a transportation strike in Rome). We freaked for a good amount of time before we hurried up and booked the next available out! Sadly half the group got the next flight out the day after the day we were suppose to leave. One day less in Rome and for the other half, only half a day in Rome. What a bummer, but we made the best of it.

We then splurged on our  dinner in Paris because we had gotten so stressed out.
