So, I spent last week in France (as you can probably tell from our Instagram) and it was something of a strange week. On one side, I had a rather weird experience (absolutely unrelated to France) which I will share with you once I get round to writing about it properly but on the flip side, I had an amazing time meeting new people and seeing new sights.

I visited this little town called Chantilly which actually falls into the Metropolitan area of France. It’s about 23 minutes from Gare du Nord (the main train station) and is a quiet little place. It’s also the place where Chantilly cream and to Chantilly lace are named after and has a history rooted in equestrian sports (essentially, they love horses). 

As always, I went with my handy camera and while I wasn’t expecting to take any photos really (it’s fairly small), I did find my jaunt through the town revealed a rather quaint and pleasant character about it.

If you’re ever in Paris, I’d recommend stopping by here (at least for a few hours – I don’t think you need to spend days here) and here’s why via a little photo diary of my time in Chantilly…
