Paris is always a good idea. Especially when you get to travel there with a special someone! 🙂 I arrived in Paris on Tuesday evening and we lost no time in taking in the sights! After checking into our hotel, we went to grab some dinner. As we walked out the door of our hotel and turned the corner, we were greeted by a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower.
After dinner, we walked to the Eiffel Tower and watched the light show. My camera roll was soon filled up with attempts to capture what we were seeing but I don’t think pictures can do it justice!
Wednesday morning we woke up to clear, blue skies and a day with nothing to do but explore the city. After breakfast we took the train to the Arc de Triomphe.
We walked the streets for a bit then decided to take the train to Montmartre. Once there we grabbed a quick lunch and rested our feet before climbing up to Sacré-Cœur.
That evening we went to a lovely dinner at Le Reminet. We were a bit early for our reservation so we walked to Notre Dame to see it all lit up. It was beautiful!
The food was AMAZING. We had escargot, salmon and pigeon. And lots of wine! It was a lovely dinner and followed by another evening walk.
Thursday morning we were up and ready for another day of exploring! We went back to Notre Dame to see it in the daylight as well as go inside. No matter how many cathedrals and churches I visit, I am always amazed by the architecture and detail.
After the Notre Dame we decided to walk to the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre. Because this was such a short trip and we were lucky enough to have beautiful weather, we decided not to go inside any of the big museums. Both of us knew we would want at least 4-5 hours in the museum and unfortunately we just didn’t have the time! I guess it just means we’ll have to come back!
Because of the beautiful weather, it felt so nice to be outside and walk throughout the city.
We took our time, stopped to take lots of pictures, changed directions, walked down side streets. It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
We caught the sunset as we were walking out of the Jardin des Tuileries. The lighting was honestly magical and it was the perfect way to end our day.
We spent our last evening in Paris eating good food and drinking great wine. Friday morning we packed up and I headed to Copenhagen (blog post from there coming soon!)
Paris had to be, by far, one of my favorite places to travel to this semester. It is such a magical city and I honestly felt like I was in a dream the entire time. It is one of those places that you always dream of going to and once you’re there you can hardly believe it! I can’t wait to come back and visit again!
