PARIS 09. 2013

Apart from being `almost` robbed twice, once in front of Gare du Nord and once again in front of  Eifel Tower, the trip was amazing!! Paris is an amazing city and you need days to discover everything that it has to offer. It`s definitely worth a visit! It is recommendable, like in any other big city to buy one day passes or 2-multi for either hop-on hop-off if you`re lazy (expensive though!!!) or metro/ bus/ trams that will allow you to move freely from one place to another without any hassle. For shorter distance we walked and walked and walked.......Taro chan was sooo tired :))
We went to Paris by Thalys, a comfy 4.5hours ride from Cologne Hbf  to Gare du Nord. These are some of the pictures I took.:)))

In case you didn`t know, they say that Paris is the second biggest Japanese community in Europe after London. The 3rd place belongs to Dusseldorf, Germany!! I haven`t seen too many Japanese in Paris is a big city but... There is a little (literally little!! 狭いいい)street called Rue de la Anne if I remember well, full of Japanese eateries. I was very eager to try the okonomiyaki restaurant!!!  It was good but not as good as I thought!  one thing is for sure, it definitely suits the size of an authentic Japanese restaurant!! Watch your head when you go upstairs!

                         Galeries Lafayette huuge shopping centre! of course, veeery expensive!

                                                      Sacre Coeur ! beautiful inside out.

    1. If you are talking about the trip as a whole, it's ok! If you're talking about the cake, yes!!!
