Yesterday me and Jonas went to the Luxembourg gardens. It was phenomenal. The only thing I didn’t love so much was the fact that there was not that much grass. I suppose I was expecting more of a park feel, but I should have realized otherwise since it’s such a tourist spot. There was one designated area for people to sit on the grass, and besides that just benches and chairs. That being said I had a really wonderful time. There was a fountain right in front of the Luxembourg palace that had adorable little ducks swimming in it. All in all, I definitely want to go back, the grassy area for people was so relaxing after walking around the gardens. Maybe a little too relaxing, because Jonas fell asleep, hahaha. Since he was asleep I had to entertain myself, which happened easily because I am definitely a people watcher and I was surrounded by people.
After a long day of walking I spotted a Starbucks from across the street. I decided, hey, I would love an iced Chai right about now and went for it. I am just going to give this advice to anyone traveling out of the U.S., never buy Starbucks in a different country. The prices were outrageous. I didn’t end up buying it so I couldn’t say if the quality is as good as back home, but I can say that you would never want to find out. It cost upwards of 4,50 euros, which is ridiculous even for them.
