Hallowousewarming

As I already anounced in my previous post, I went to a ‘Hallowousewarming’ last weekend. My sister (K) and her boyfriend (M) have recently bought a house (yes, a real house, shit is getting serious) and it was about time for them to throw a proper housewarming for their friends. Although family was not invited, me and my boyfriend got a sneeky invitation anyway. Of course, I can only assume this was because of our general awesomeness. And oh yeah, because I hadn’t seen my sister in more than a month maybe 😅.

A Quick Catch-up

View Paris Centre Pompidou www.thisisb.be

So, I promised myself to put up a blogpost every Wednesday and Sunday during my exchange period, but that totally failed last week. Which is sad, because I did a lot of nice things that I want to remember for ever, and I don’t want to upset future, memory-loss-having me. Confusing 😅.  So today, I’m posting a quick catch-up, just to keep all those memories alive and to make sure that everything stays a little bit in chronological order. Hands in the air like we don’t care and let’s start this blogpost already!

Spreading the love in Versailles

This is B - Versailles

Last weekend, a certain someone came to visit me in Paris, which made me very happy. I hadn’t seen my boyfriend in 6 weeks and that was, weirdly enough, the longest time we had ever been apart. So, clearly, the weekend was all about a lot of cuddles & kisses, Paris sightseeing, endless weird conversations and some sushi-ordering in between. One of the things that I had been dying to visit (and naturally I dragged my boyfriend along) was Versailles. So on Friday, we managed to leave my apartment and left for a day of exploring.

Autumn in Paris

Autumn in Paris

I’ve never been much of an autumn fan. Most years, I try to stretch summer as long as possible, until the point where I can’t deny that it is getting colder and then I switch to being scared of winter. I am so sorry, but I kinda hate winter/snow? It’s probably because my brother was better at throwing snowballs when we grew up #YoungestChildProblems. But back to autumn. Frankly, I have never paid much attention to autumn in general. But this weekend has changed it all! This weekend, I officially became a member of the autumn-lover-fan-club and I’m proud. Where does this come from, you ask? I’ll tell you exactly how this all happened, diary-style.

A Throwback – Family vacation at the Westcoast, USA

Living abroad in Paris has been absolutely amazing for me so far. Daily metro-rides passing the Eiffel tower, making real Parisian friends, a croissant-addiction and some fashion week action in between… The city silently embraces you, shows her inner beauty and then suddenly you love her. But let’s not forget about the things I love and left at home! Which means my boyfriend and my family, whom I think of and miss every day. So, as to make sure they know that I haven’t forgotten about them, here’s a little throwback to the roadtrip we did this summer along the USA’s Westcoast. Buckle up, my friends!

Ladurée

Ladurée

When you are in Paris as a tourist, there are some things that you have to visit at least once, to make sure you can answer “yes of course I’ve been there, duhh” when someone asks you about it. You just don’t want to be in that awkward position where you have to admit that you skipped one of Paris’ essentials. One of these essentials is definitely Ladurée, a luxury bakery known around the world for its famous macarons. And hooray for us, because the international group of my school organised a visit!

Street Food Temple #2

Street food temple #2

When you’re on exchange, you get invited to a lot of events. Party here, party there, exhibition tomorrow, weekend-trip next week, and so on. There’s always something to do! However, one of the events that captured my attention faster than any other, was the ‘Street Food Temple #2’ event. Note: this might or might not be because the word ‘food’ was in the event’s title, and because I have a food obsession. Yes, I’m the girl who has a seperate album for food pictures on her iPhone and who plans her whole week around the meals she’ll have.
Anyway, on saturday afternoon we grabbed our wallets, hopped on the metro and headed for ‘le carreau du temple’ where the event was taking place!

Les Tuileries

Last sunday, Rebeca, Fani and me were planning to go to the Paris’ catacombs.  The catacombs are dark hallways underneath the surface of Paris, were skulls, bones and other human relics are kept. Many other Erasmus students had talked about it and said it was cool, so we were looking forward to a visit! At least, the tough girls (Fani and I) were looking forward to it, Rebeca (our scared cry baby 🙂 ) not so much. Once we arrived, however, we soon saw that there was a gi-gan-tic queu. People were standing in line for hundreds of meters, and the row was not progressing at all.
If you know me, you know how I think about queus… Ain’t nobody got time for that! So I convinced the others to delay our visit and spend our time elsewhere. And that’s how we ended up at le Jardin des Tuileries!
