Eurotrip Day 9: Gluten Free Pastries and the Louvre Museum!

So on the day before we flew back home we adventured to the famous Louvre Museum which was pretty awesome. There was however a bunch of negatives, it was super hot, sweaty hot in that place lol, also after about being there for an hour it filled up to Disney World New Years Eve style packed. It was insane about the amount of people there. It was un-enjoyable and we planned on spending hours there, instead we hung out for about an hour literally. It was that packed and hot in the place we bailed. The things you don’t read online about the Louvre, also the 100,000 people in line to see the Mona Lisa, just because it got stolen once and a shitty painting if you ask me. There are a lot more interesting things there. Anyways lets start off walking to this amazing pastry shop that was gluten free (of course it didn’t open on time) it’s Paris! They do whatever the fuck they want!

Gluten Free Goodies! Helmut Newcake Sans Gluten! This place was so fucking good, even put like 3 baguettes in my backpack.

While waiting for the pastry shop to open we saw this, it’s the Place de la Madeleine.

L’église de la Madeleine (French pronunciation: ​[leɡliːz də la madəlɛn], Madeleine Church; more formally, L’église Sainte-Marie-Madeleine; less formally, just La Madeleine) is a Roman Catholic church occupying a commanding position in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The Madeleine Church was designed in its present form as a temple to the glory of Napoleon’s army. To its south lies the Place de la Concorde, to the east is the Place Vendôme, and to the west Saint-Augustin, Paris.

Eurotrip Day 8: Exploring the streets of Paris and Eiffel Tower Tourist Trap

Ok time to finally explore Paris, after the Disneyland attraction got out of the way it was time to see what everyone was talking about. It also happened to be “May Day” which was when all the riots were in full force, however we didn’t see any riots. Just police officers blocking off alot of tourist attractions, many ambulances driving places, and lots of tank looking trucks. Paris was kind of like I expected but it did grow on me, it was dirty like NYC but had a MUCH better charm to it. You get the France feel in the park, but actually being in Paris was a much more authentic experience.

Had to grab me some gluten free macaroons first stop! The lady was like Bon Jour and I dropped that “sans gluten” on her, she melted and showed me sans gluten aka gluten free!
