I’ve been in France now for 5 days and it has been an absolute whirlwind. We spent the first couple of days exploring the city and seeing the sights, and on the third day my sister got married to her wonderful husband beside the Seine River. It was an honour for Irek and I to serve as their witnesses and to experience such a beautiful ceremony.
Paris is definitely a busy, happening place. It’s even busier right now with tourists than usual as France is hosting the Euro Cup. I am not one for crowds really and so 3 days in Paris was enough for me. But definitely glad we were able to explore a bit, see the amazing architecture, and spend quality time with my sister and now brother-in-law. I also got to see my beautiful adoptive Godmother after 12 years, so that really made my trip thus far.
Irek and I arrived in Nice yesterday afternoon and now we’re about to head out into the city and explore Old Town. It’s been a challenge finding vegan food in France, and if you plan on visiting yourself and eat only plant-based, then make sure to plan out your meals / which restaurants you’ll go to ahead of time. There are lots of vegan restaurants but you need to know where they are first and if they are open etc. You can’t just walk down the street and go in any restaurant and expect a vegan or even vegetarian meal… it’s not common here at all. We had quite a bit of trouble finding something to eat last night, but ended up with a big pizza each and a plate of french fries… we’re in dyer need of a cold-pressed juice so that’s the mission this morning! Now, all that being said, we had 2 amazing vegan meals in Paris and will be posting about those shortly. I would say perhaps two of the best vegan meals I’ve had in my life! So it’s definitely possible to find!
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! Sorry for the delayed blog post, but as I said, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. Stay happy and healthy and chat soon! 🙂
