What I did in Paris (part 2)

So sorry for the lack of posts! Getting to London and Oxford has been crazy and I have fallen behind, but I'm alive and well :)

My last day in Paris was only a half day because we were heading to London in the afternoon. In the morning we went headed to the flea market to see if we could score some awesome finds. I have heard such good things about the Paris flea markets. The really large one wasn't open the day we were there, but we found a smaller one that worked just fine. I bought this BEAUTIFUL briefcase. It's this wonderful honey-colored leather with a gold lock. Ah, I love it.

I also wanted to see the Sacré-Cœur, so we headed up to the Montmarte neighborhood. The basilica is beautiful! You also get an amazing view of Paris from the top of the hill. I would definitely put this on your list if you are going to Paris! We tried to make it to the Catacombs, but the line went on for days! When you've got only a few days in Paris you have to carefully plan your time. I loooooved this city. Definitely give yourself way more time than two days. I didn't get to just sit and enjoy Paris as much as I wanted to, but that just gives me a reason to go back :)

    Super! Sacre Coeur was spectacular. And I hope you got some macarons while in Paris. Truly, there are none better in all the world.
