EATALY is a famous marketplace chain, with restaurants inside !
My sister & I met again for lunch (this is becoming a series for us 😅). We were in the mood for Italian food, and since we were at the BHV we thought to ourselves, let’s go to Eataly since it’s close-by. I am not a fan of these food chain places, but they do serve occasionally good things, also I happen to know that they have a fair wine selection here.
I wanted to check out this place for a while, just because it says “Cali” in the name. I’m always very doubtful when I come across places in Paris that claim to have some LA-cuisine. It’s just never it. Same goes for LA, if you’re looking for a baguette, then don’t. Also, the main thing in LA is probably the service. They just have excellent service, you can’t say the same for Paris.
I went there with my friend on Sunday, we were lucky enough to get seated at the bar without a reservation. It said on their website they always keep a couple of tables for people without a booking, it turned out that wasn’t true… I didn’t think it would be that full, but it was. So I thought okay, it must be good then : it wasn’t really the case unfortunately.
Oh my gosh, I’m so nostalgic… I’ve literally had the best time. I mean it was beautiful, the mountain sightings were breathtaking ! My best friend took me to see some amazing things I will never forget. The air was so pure up there, it was delightful to feel connected to nature like this, and appreciate its wonders.
I’m hoping I can go to her again soon, I know she’ll come visit me in Paris, but I want another Swiss road trip ! Let’s pray that my recovery speeds up and well 🙏
She took me through the mountains to Sargan’s Castle, where the view was absolutely breathtaking… but the way to get there, it was also quite frankly incredible. Switzerland must be the most beautiful country I’ve ever visited. I’m so lucky that my best friend lives here, and whenever I get to visit her then we go explore the magic ✨
After that little pit stop, we went to the famous Bad Ragaz town. They have a 5 stars resort there, under Swiss standards, it is impressive. I was completely blown away by the place. Not only do they have the usual casino, spa, thermal baths and what not, but also Moët & Chandon champagne bottles available in vending machines… I’m not joking.
Super classy and luxurious. But also art-oriented, there are sculptures made of wood that look so human-like, you wonder if they’re alive. The parks are also pleasant, and overall this road trip was my fave 🤍
A little stroll around Paris, back in the fall, when I could actually walk that much.
So because I’ve been confined at home, and my only outings are walks in the woods, I don’t really have much new content to share. But the good news is, I have a ton of old pictures that I’ve never shown online, and they are pretty cool to me, because they bring a lot of good memories.
In the meantime I’m able to go back on an actual vacation, I will be editing and posting my previous trips !
It will at least cheer me up, and fill this blog with much needed content.
