Hi everyone, how was your Easter holiday ?
I spent mine resting, and catching up with family and friends. But now the exams and lots of homework are coming !
Last Sunday for Easter I went with my family to the Buttes Chaumont, it’s a parc you can visit in Paris, where you can find 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 enjoyable.
We had some meat, bread, veggies, and a free gluten savoury loaf 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.
There were a lot of different flowers and plants in this parc, it was beautiful
And what would Easter be without some chocolate ?
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 far you could see the Sacré Cœur in the distance :
We also ran into this guy, he had a white parrot on a leash.
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 petals 🌸 It reminded me a bit of my trip to Japan.
Some abstract art on a bench :
Some panda art on a wall :
(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 convivial way of having lunch ?
How did you spend your own holiday ?
