Paris Travel Diaries: Chilly, Rainy Saturday Afternoon at the Avenue des Champs-Élysées (Part 1)

It was our last Saturday in Paris and unlike the previous days, it was raining from morning until late afternoon.  Since it was our only day left to tour the rest of the city, our plan was to take our time and see the avenue until we reach the Arc de Triomphe. My man needs to be prepared when it comes to excessive walking, a.k.a. window shopping. I think it is a common thing with men. They hate going to malls and taking so much time looking around.  So if your store has a couch or chair, they will remember your brand!  But it’s not like we are always in Paris, right? Therefore, expectations were set and add on was the non-stop rain outside, making it extra chilly.

Concorde station is within the same line as Saint Georges and just 5 stations apart. That was already a treat for us!

Concorde is distinctive due to its décor created by artist Françoise Schein: she covered the entire station’s voult line 12 with tiles spelling the Déclaration des Droits de l’Homme et du Citoyen of 1789.

This boulevard is famous for its cafes and luxury shops, but our attention was caught by the Noel Bazaar set up on both sides of the road. We came early and some of the stalls were still closed while majority of the food stalls were all set and ready with their delicious goodies.   Despite the very (and I mean it,) cold weather, we cannot contain our happiness and excitement to explore this street.
