Paris part 2 - only parks, no shopping!

Jardin des Tuileries
Jardin des Tuileries is a huge park, which reaches all the way from Place de la Concorde to the museum of Louvre. With its statues, flowers, fountains and the big Ferris wheel, it makes an impression on both the younger as well as the older people.

Can you believe it! An empty square in the middle of Paris. Some occasional, active people jogging around the square and some other, well, not-so-active people immersed in their books, sitting on the benches under the trees. It looked so peaceful to see such a view in this bustling city. Paris does have approximately 27 million visitors each year!

I also ate one of the best ice-creams of my life in this very park. I just loved their different way of buying the ice-cream: first you chose the size of your cup and after that they would fill it up with all your desired flavours. That's right, you could have tasted a bit of every single flavour if you wanted to! As I can't resist chocolate, I chose three or four of them. Yum!


L'Arc de Triomphe. Yep, that's my friend and me in the lower right-hand corner. It was a bit crowded, so to speak...We would have wanted to go shopping on this day, but our tour guide decided that it's such a lovely day for walking on the avenue of champs-élysées. Besides, there are shops on the avenue, so everything should be just great! Well, the shops being luxury fashion boutiques, they didn't really satisfy us students.

Sometimes it is good to pay for experiences rather that t-shirts. I think this is the most important thing I learned during my trip.I must admit, though, that I love fashion and mixing and matching clothes!

After walking for some time on the avenue, we wanted to go rest in a park and take some photos. It was kind of embarrassing to sit near the flowerbed but it was totally worth it! Luckily there weren't that many people staring at us. I'll end this post to these summery photos taken in one of the side gardens of Avenue de Champs-Élysées.

On Saturday we'll be leaving for Gran Canaria, as you probably have noticed the ticking countdown clock on the right-hand side. It means bye-bye for a week, there'll be a bunch of new adventures to share with you guys after that!
