Easter Picnic in Paris ๐Ÿฐ

Hi everyone, how was your Easter holiday ?

I spent mine resting, and catching up with family and friends. But now the exams and lots ofย homework are coming !
Last Sunday for Easter I went with my family to the Buttes Chaumont, it’s a parc you canย visit in Paris, where you can findย some nature (there is not much nature in Paris unfortunately). We decided to have a picnic there, on the grass !

The day was half sunny, half cloudy, but still enjoyableย ๐Ÿ˜Š
We hadย some meat, bread, veggies, and a free gluten savoury cake that I made for my mother (she’s allergic to gluten). I’ll make a post with the recipe later, she was really pleased !

What a perfect plate right ?
But only a few minutes later it looked like that :

Eating outside is so messy !
(of course we cleaned all that up after)

We had some dessert too, my sister bought these from Christophe Michalak’s Bakery (it’s a well known french pastry chef), they were really as delicious as pretty ย ๐Ÿฐ

After we finished our lunch, we walked around the parc.
My sister and my second cousin were wearing (almost) the same shoes !

The parc is at high altitude on a small hill, so from very farย you could see the Sacrรฉ Cล“ur in the distance :

We also ran into this guy, he had a white parrot on a leash ๐Ÿฆ
Paris is a place where you can really see so many different things and people, it’s amazing.

This tree was so pretty !
The ground was covered in pink petalsย ๐ŸŒธ It reminded me a bit of my trip to Japan ๐Ÿ™‚

(don’t forget kids, vandalism is bad)

Then we ended up drinking something warm in a nice cafe you can find inside the parc.

The Buttes Chaumont is a really a pleasant parc, I recommend going there if you ever visit Paris. And don’t hesitate to have a picnic either ! I don’t do it often but I realised I like to do so, it’s a very convivialย way of having lunch ๐Ÿ˜Š

How did you spend your own holiday ?

See ya !ย ๐Ÿ’™

  1. Amazing, amazing pictures,You know how to live girl! So, have you heard of « Paris Syndrome »? it’s when traveller’s go into full blown shock and start hallucinating because Paris didn’t live up to their expectations!

    1. Thank you dear ! ๐Ÿ’• Yeah I heard that it’s something that actually happened to tourists, since they idealize it so much ! But it’s understandable, when you see how dirty the streets of paris are, and how careless French people can be when they don’t understand the person in front of them… and many other things. It’s still a gorgeous city though ๐Ÿ˜…
