I have heard many things about you – some good, others not so much. When I met you I had no idea what to expect. I had heard from some that your people are lovely, I had heard from others that your people could be quite rude.
I am so pleased to have discovered for myself the hospitality your people. Most, if not all, the people I encountered were very willing to help me and listen as I attempted very poorly, some French. I even had the girl who served me my gelati laugh and tell me how cute I was attempting to order!
And your food – Paris, you little devil you! Croissants and baguettes with cheese and jam for breakfast, crepes with banana and nutella for lunch… so much glorious food, so little time! I may or may not have had second breakfast and second lunch on two separate days!
I am in love Paris – so thank you!
You will forever have a piece of my heart,
While in Paris I stayed in Montmarte, the artists district right near the Moulin Rouge. It was a little more expensive but absolutely worth every extra euro…!
Notre Dame was spectacular!
On my last day in Paris I visited the Louvre early in the morning before the crowds, I spent a few hours walking around amazed by all of the history. I saw this piece which I was drawn to – I’ve no idea what the history behind it is but it’s beautiful!
I was absolutely blown away by the ceilings too…
After getting lost in The Louvre, I made my way to the Eiffel Tower, which I am glad that I went to see, however, after witnessing all of the amazing architecture it looked like a giant TV antenna!!!
I bought a bottle of rosè and sat and watched people pass me by… I keep getting asked if I am 18 too which is hilarious but hey, I’ll take it!
I honestly could have stayed here forever!
I almost did stay in Paris forever… well for an extra 3 days! I missed by bus in the morning after getting lost. I really need to learn how to read a map. Seriously, it shouldn’t be that hard.
So I bought myself a train ticket and headed of to Bern to meet up with my bus… after missing my connecting train and getting lost again I made it to Lauterbrunnen where I will be for 1 more day before heading to Lake Como…
Excuse me while I go and sample some rosti and fondue…
