The little Paris of the South – Montpellier / Day 3 & 4

A trip to the South of France, to the little Paris of the South, to Montpellier. Montpellier has been on top of the list with places to see and visit.

 

It’s a small city, with lovely people, shops and restaurants. Within 4 days you start to recognise the city.

We arrived in a beautiful hotel, Hotel Oceania, with a lovely hostess. She came originally from America, lived in Arnhem for 1 year and met her boyfriend, who is from Montpellier. Now they live in Montpellier, so she speaks fluently French, English and a little Dutch.

Day 3 

Montpellier has got a huge botanical garden, which is on a walking distance from Place de la Comédie, it’s like 15 minutes. Of course there are more ways to get there, we took the one through the little streets. So around 11.30 we sat down for our first coffee.

After a few more minutes of walking we saw the Arc de Triomph and behind that you’ll see a beautiful park.

These two pictures are taken in the park, and for a second I thought I could cross that bridge. But that’s not possible, and I was kind of intrigued, because it looks like one of those abandoned pictures you see on the internet. And since I’m watching lots of those videos where people visit those places I had to take a photo.

Day 4 

We took another trip to the botanical garden, just because we were not really finished exploring. The botanical garden opens at 12 o’clock and we had to leave to the airport at 14.30, so we were kind of in a hurry. But happily it all worked out great.

The 3rd day I bought this ‘Amour’ shirt at a local shop called, Pop cultures.

Hotspot alert – L’appart’thé

You can find this cute place in the center of the old village. They’ve got a different plat du jour every day, and those homemade pies. So yummy.

Their coffee is absolutely one of the best espresso’s I’ve ever had, so secretly I took three coffees during lunch.

By the time we arrived it was almost time for dinner. But before that, we wanted to do a little bit of exploring around the hotel.

Only one minute away was Place de la Comédie. A huge square with a market, cinema, opera and a park.

Paris Chèri

Paris the city of love, a city I’ve been to so many times before, but will always be magical.

This trip has been a two day trip to start fresh and think about what I want and how I want to achieve it.

It has also been the first time I visited Centre Pompidou, honestly I’ve been inside the museum for three hours. Modern art is very inspiring and will always make you think about life maybe or other things you can relate it to in some way.

Art, of course, is a very open thing and you can create everything you want in any way you want. Modern art is really an art that will make you think.

The hotel room had a balcony at Rue de Rivoli, so a few photo’s needed to be taken. Honestly it felt like 3 degrees outside, but you know, everything for that Instagram photo.

Gallery Lafayette is always on my list of things to visit in Paris, this time I bought a Ralph Lauren Jumper, a top and t-shirt from Tommy Hilfiger.

Hey you,

Thank you for entering my world, aka my blog. Let me introduce
myself first. 

My name is Sophie, I’m 22 years old and I live in the Netherlands. My blog will be and is my creative space and a place where I love to write about the things I do and love. My passion for writing started at a young age and it has always been my way to express myself.
Besides writing, music is another passion. I’m playing piano for 14 years and again this is also my way of expressing how I feel. I love to write small pieces of songs, just for fun. Everywhere I go I’m listening to music and I love to make playlists on Spotify, a playlist for every occasion.

To be honest I’ve got lots of interests, hobbies and things I’m passionate about and it would be to much to be specific about everything, so here are a few; languages, architecture, fashion, yoga, cooking, singing, reading, filming/editing & photography. 

Here on my blog I would love to write about fashion, lifestyle, like health, food, music and about the traveling I’m doingI’m very excited about this blogging adventure.

See you !
