Charming Montmartre

Our next day in Paris was spent with a few hours looking around the church, having a rummage in Fauchon, my favourite luxury food boutique and the incredible Mariage Fréres, an amazingly vast tea shop (think Charlie’s chocolate factory for tea!)

We walked up the Champs-élysées, hit Sephora for some make-up rummaging and did some typically touristy posing at the Arc du Triomphe!

We walked, and walked, and walked, and walked till we could walk no more! Eventually we tired and jumped onto a bus and headed towards the Sacré Coeur in the Montmartre area of Paris.

One of my favourite spots in Paris was Montmartre, slightly down from the Sacré Coeur, further away from the swarms. Being here was a bit like being taken back in a time machine to an artsy part of Paris with charm and character. Streets are absolutely filled with art galleries, chocolate shops, grocery stores and fromageries. We went into a local boulangerie and then a local fromagerie and then had a little picnic of baguettes with artisan cheeses. Bliss!
