... to Paris! Do you remember me saying about 2 weeks ago that I'd be busy with things that weren't related to school? Well, this was it. I went to Paris and Berlin with my mom for 12 days and had such an amazing time. It was nice being able to travel with just my mother. Major bonding time, haha! :] Also, I must thank her for taking my outfit shots during the whole trip and for the most awesome vacation ever! Thank you, mom! I love you! :]
We were very fortunate to be able to stay with an amazing Filipina in Paris. Thank you T. Raymond for introducing us to your sister (more on her and her wonderful family in a few days :]), who then introduced us to Tita Chita. Her place in Paris was gorgeous and so conveniently located. The interior design was also extremely pretty and homey. I really miss that place! Hope I can go back and visit soon!
We went to two department stores on our real first day in Paris. Real first day because we arrived around 10pm the night before and were too exhausted from the 14hour flight to Amsterdam and the flight from there to Paris, haha. The first one we went to was Printemps. Tita Chita took us to the top and showed us its magnificent view of Paris. It's the same view you'd see from the top of the Eiffel Tower which you'll see in two photos below! :]
There it is! ❤
With mother dearest :]
The next place we went to was another department store. It's more known and really, really huge. They even have a branch in Berlin! Ever heard of Galeries Lafayette? Well, that's where we went! They sell just about everything and I had so much fun looking at all the shoes they were selling. If you get a chance to go there, do look up and admire all the prettiness you'll see (check out photos below)! :]
From there, we headed to Montmartre. I should tell you that we took the metro to all these places and to pretty much everywhere else. It was really easy to learn and it was very practical. I wish we had the same system in the Philippines! Haha. :]
Back to Montmartre. It's a very famous tourist attraction and of course it's gorgeous like everything else in Paris.
As you can see, we decided to take some outfit shots here, haha! :]
So much bigger than the birds I'm used to seeing here at home, haha!
Another shot of the Church in Montmartre
A little restaurant we found that sold some familiar food! And no, we didn't eat burgers, haha.
Yummy, yummy sweets! :D There was a little girl adoring the display too, haha!
I'll be posting more pictures in the coming days. I'm really excited and would post everyday if I could, but I missed two weeks of school and have some catching up to do. I'll work as fast as I can so I can go back to blogging as soon as possible. :]

"Going out in Paris was like going out in the '30s dressed like the Andrews Sisters. It was everything I'd seen in books at my grandparents' house, only it was our generation."
