Flea market fun

What a fab day. Literally done some of my favourite things today. On Facebook I found a page called- ‘la REcyclerie’ -http://www.larecyclerie.com/ 

and I thought I’d pop there as it looked quite quirky. I got to it and it was miles bigger then I expected tbh. I couldn’t believe it. The main centre bit is a lovely cafe with vintage chairs and sofas to sit on, I saw the food they were serving and it looked really lovely and fresh. On massive plates too!!
I was walking around and the outside area is so big, it has chickens, fish, a place where people were selling vintage clothes, a repair centre, a bee hive bit, lots of veg plants and all the tables were made out of reclaimed wood. I’ve not seen a place like this before and i am amazed at how busy it was and how much they had going on.
I sat there and read my book for a while then went over the road to the flea market which again… was fantastic. First you have to walk through the normal market and tbh it was a bit like a ghetto. I didn’t really feel safe with my phone etc which put me off. But I got to the inside area and people were selling vintage prints, clothes, furniture… just everything you can think of. I bought a lovely old print that I was drawn too and it was only 10 euro so I’ll put it in my flat when I get home. 🙂

It was only 2ish when I’d finished there, so quite close by was the Sacré-Cœur – (Iconic, domed white church, completed in 1914, with interior mosaics, stained-glass windows & crypt.) I was wanting to visit there anyway so i had to climb like a million steps all the way up to it.. only to figure out there’s a lift!!! Haha. I think it might just be for disabled people though I don’t know. Anyway it was beautiful and the view you get from the top is to die for. It’s a shame the sky wasn’t blue or my pictures would have looked lush! people were queueing up outside to get in the building but i didn’t feel like going in because there was quite a bit going on outside. Im going to read up about the place and see how much it is before i take a look inside(if i do). I really love Paris… in England everything is so polite, done by the rule book, frowned upon… but here it is literally like living in a playground. Everyone does what ever the hell they want and they dont care who sees it or if they get judged. Ive seen so many crazy things and its only been 5 days!!

Here is some pictures i have taken today 🙂

Paris

Paris 08/08/2017

Arrived in at about 5pm. The flight from Manchester was so speedy I couldn’t believe how quick it was!! Had to get the RER B train to near the centre as apparently, I’m staying in the ‘China town of paris? It’s in the 11thendorsement. I got there and a guy greeted me who had been looking after the cats for a couple of days before hand

He was lovely and from Texas, he was giving me abit of business advice about gembobs crafts… to start to focus more on my customers and not just make all the time which is something I do constantly. I find the business side quite difficult really.

Anyway, we chatted and he showed me how to inject one of the arts as she has diabetes L never done that before so it’s good to know what to do. She is gorgeous and pure white. There is another cat also who has urinary problems!! The apartment is lovely I couldn’t have asked for nicer tbh I feel very lucky. So, I just got my things sorted ECT and headed for bed awaiting the explorations to begin the next day.

Day1…

So, I’ve come out into the world and I just thought I would wander tbh to see where it takes me

I’m currently in the louvre queue which is MASSIVE OMG. But if I don’t stand in it now I never will so just have got to do it I suppose. It’s quite a nice day so I don’t mind. A girl from lonelyplanets forum messaged me as I said I was in Paris and she is travelling and is here for tonight so we are randomly meeting up!! She seems lovely so hopefully it’ll be good!! (didn’t meet up in the end… it started pouring it down)

The Louvre is AMAZING obviously. It is absolouty massive and I really didn’t expect that. The mona lisa was bigger then I expected. everyone kept saying its tiny but its not that small? I couldn’t get to it though because the room was full of people. Really busy so I didn’t really like that it made me quite anxious and I felt my heart racing so I had to get out. I decided to wander to the Eifle Tower next but it just started raining so I went to a cute little café and sat outside under shelter and had a small tea. Quite nice just to chill for abit because I find it hard to sit down but haing done 20,000 steps approx (I have a fitbit…) I definetly needed to sit down!!

I got back around 6 ish which was perfect. I had a lovely day out and paris is just gorgeous and so so pretty I would love to live here and take some french lessons because the language is lush.

Im going to update on my adventures on things i’ve done in Paris but not log everyday as its very time consuming but I will show pictures etc!
