Hello my lovelies! Welcome back to another Parisian adventure here on LaDameWhoFellToEarth. Today’s post is a short little photo diary from last weekend when I visited the Opera House or, The Palais Garnier as we call it here in Paris. I’ve  seen a lot of awe-inspiring interiors in this city but the one found in the Opera definitely trumps them all in terms of being the most extravagant and jaw-dropping.

I really hope these photos will inspire you to pay the Opera House a visit if you ever happen to be in Paris but honestly my photos don’t even do this beautiful building justice for how incredible this place really is on the inside.

The 13th Arrondissement is one of my favourite places to experience this. Especially around the area of the Butte-aux-Cailles, one of the most hipster-friendly areas of the city and an unchartered territory for tourists.

As soon as I first set eyes on her illustrations and the various ways in which she depicts sentiment, love, loss and heartbreak I couldn’t wait to get familiar with more of her colourful prints.

 A little over eight months ago I completely uprooted my life by leaving behind everything I knew in Dublin to start over from scratch in Paris. This was definitely one of the stupidest, scariest and bravest things I ever did in my life but luckily I somehow found a way of making it work. Despite the success I have had so far in this city, the beginning of my journey threw a lot of difficulties my way so today I thought I would share five of the things I wish I had known before moving to France. Let’s start.
