Do you ever have a day where you learn about something new and fall in love instantly? Today was one of those days and I truly have something new to obsess over that isn’t in a barn or need electricity to function. Crazy, I know!
I decided that I liked the feeling of trying new things, so I did that when I ordered a chocolate beignet for breakfast. And guess what! I did it all in French and responded to a question in French all by myself! A beignet is basically a long filled doughnut with sugar on top. It was super fluffy and the chocolate was the perfect consistency for starting my morning off right.
I was super tired this morning so after walking through the Muse d’Orsay for a couple hours, we decided to stop for a snack and coffee. I got the pain au chocolate (basically a square croissant with chocolate inside) and a cafe au lait (coffee with milk). The coffee wasn’t my favorite because it was super strong coffee flavor but I didn’t mind because I bought it simply for the caffeine.
Also, I must add that the whole Impressionist level of the museum almost had me in tears because the paintings were just gorgeous and I just couldn’t get enough. My personal favorite was Monet and all of his landscape pieces and I just fell in love instantly. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone even if you aren’t a huge art person.
We had to splurge a bit for lunch as we were by the Eiffel Tower. I ordered spaghetti bolognese again and it was so worth the 15 euros. The meat to sauce to pasta ratio was perfect and the flavor was amazing. It was also a large portion so we got our money’s worth.
Because lunch was a little more expensive than normal, we made a stop at the Mono Prix by our dorm and picked up some meat and cheese to go on a baguette, from our favorite bakery of course, to make sandwiches in our rooms. I also picked up some grapes and a large smoothie for the morning and just to have some snacks in the room.
