Picnic spot: Champ de Mars

Sunday is kind of a big deal here in Paris. Most things are closed and you get a hard time finding anything you need. Grocery stores maybe open until 13:30, if you’re lucky.

We literally just ate and chilled for 4 hours…because, why not? hahaDSC_1031

The area around Champ de Mars may be very touristy, but the park itself is pretty spacious, and oddly, tourist-free. (Maybe it’s because they’re all lining up to go up the Eiffel.)

DSC_1041Yeah, I guess having everything closed on Sundays is pretty annoying, but this slow pace of life where I get to picnic for 4 hours? I can get used to this…
