A little Paris Diary

weekend in paris1
Paris diary. Paris Paris! I was really excited for Paris since our last time dates already back to August. I arrived around noon on Friday and had some free time the whole afternoon. When I got there the weather was perfect and I wished for good weather for the weekend. Unfortunately, Paris turned into its usual grayness and it was super cold.

Paris and I are not in a good place right now. During the last three years I spent more time in Paris than back home in South Tyrol. Don’t get me wrong – being in Paris is always great but right now I feel that I’ve seen most of it and get a little bit bored of the city. Moreover, I’m never driving there for shopping. For the restaurants I definitely would. I think we both need some time apart now and I need to discover new places. Nonetheless, I’ve discovered a couple of new places this time…

Burger at Le Burger Fermier

I love Expat Edna’s ‚The best things I ate in…‘ – Paris for example Posts. Through her I found Le Burger Fermier at Le Marché des Enfants Rouges. Whenever I’m in Paris I need to eat one of those delicious burger. Therefore, I head there and grabed a hamburger with cheddar cheese and bacon plus fries. There is a fix price of 10€ for a burger and you can choose the type of cheese and top it with bacon for example. The burger was okay but definitely not the best in Paris. I found it a little bit dry and I’d wished for other sauces. Maybe I need to try another kind of cheese next time.

Lunch at Brasserie Lipp

After my burger I met up with Amandine in Saint-Germain-des-Près. We always meet by coincidence in Paris (I think we saw us more times in Paris than in Germany). Of course, not having seen us in a long time we had a lot to catch up. We drank and ate at Café Lipp which is also a classic in Paris opposite Café de Flore (quite expensive, though!). After my burger a hot chocolate was enough for me, which was very good. Amandine got a big plate of choucroute garnie.

Brunch at Breakfast in America 3

On Sunday morning we’ve missed breakfast at our hotel and strolled down to the second arrondissement from Pigalle. Paris is great for brunchs on a Sunday and we chose Breakfast in America. The prices sounded reasonable with a brunch for 14€. All in all, it was okay but nothing extraordinary. Well, foodwise Paris wasn’t so kind to me this time.

Les passages

In Paris there are so many lovely passages and galeries. You’ll probably know the most famous one – Galerie Vivienne. When we took a stroll down from Montmartre we saw one Galerie and walked through it. Right after there came two more and they were just so beautiful. Apparently, there is a street where there is one galerie after the other (maybe it was this one). Moreover, people live in the upper floors and you’ll notice entrances once in a while.

Stroll through Saint-Germain-des-Prés

On Sunday afternoon my boyfriend has already gone back to Munich and I had some free-time. I took a long walk to Saint-Germain-des-Près. Even though I lived there for four months in the beginning of my exchange year I discovered a lot more new places. I can only repeat myself – in Paris you’ll never get bored!
