On my last day in Paris, I went to the Musée Galliera, which is Paris’ main Fashion museum. Unfortunately, the 18th-century costumes, haute couture, photography and accessories I had read about were not available for viewing. They did, however, have a special exhibition honouring Azzedine Alaïa, the Tunisian-born couturier and shoe designer. It was really inspiring to see his amazing pieces, and I also appreciated being able to just take it in visually, as I wasn’t allowed to take photos. The above photo is of the garden in front of the Museum.
This building was beautiful.
Afterwards, I went on a little walk around Paris and stumbled upon this bridge. This is not the official love lock bridge in Paris, but as it turns out there are multiple bridges with love locks on them.
By this point in the day I was absolutely ravenous, so I found a little cafe to have lunch at. As per usual, I had my signature salad.
After walking around some more, I headed back into the city for some dinner. As it was my last night in Paris, I wanted to go out with a bang, so I treated myself to this crazy beverage.
The official love lock bridge, which is right near Notre-Dame.
I enjoyed a Nutella crepe and ice cream after walking off my dinner.
My last night in Paris was lovely, and I will treasure the memories of my trip forever. The next morning, I headed home. I had mixed feelings about leaving, on the one hand, I was looking forward to going home, but on the other, a part of me desperately wanted to stay. I am, however, lucky enough to say that I have definitely not seen the last of Paris.
This is the eighth and final instalment of my Paris travel series, I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it x
