Happy New Year guys and gals, it’s been a while. I haven’t blogged in quite some time now, mainly down to the fact that I have been living life without a laptop. My laptop decided to give up on me and stop working but there’s no need to be sad anymore! After what seems to have been forever, I am back – hopefully you didn’t miss me too much. I finally have a new lappy after months of hard graft, blood, sweat and even a few tears to earn those coins as we can’t all just be rich. If only the struggle could be less real. I currently don’t have anything new to show but somehow I already have two holidays booked this year so I guess that’s a plus. With that said I thought we could take a trip back to last year April when I did go Paris and totally forgot to do a post so go make a cuppa and sit down because I have loads of pictures.
Where do I begin? Right so this was my first time in France, yes surprising I know when the UK and France are practically neighbours. With Paris being the “City of Love” and with it coming up to the 4th anniversary with my partner, I decided to treat us both to a 2 day getaway where we’d actually celebrate our anniversary. A hopeless romantic I know. With only having a short stay there I made sure we got a lot done in fact I pre-planned the whole trip. Our hotel was pretty much central of all the main attractions, which was perfect, so we ended up doing both days on foot. A holiday and a workout all in one. We knew we wouldn’t get to see everything so we chose the ones we wanted to see the most so let’s start with the closest landmark to the hotel and work on from that. First up was the Notre-Dame Cathedral.
What a sight! Growing up one of my favourite films was ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ and I would hope that one day I would get to see in real life if this magnificent cathedral looked anything as good as its depiction. Well it happened and I must say that I was not disappointed. It was everything I thought it would be and to see it in all its glory and to hear those bells was truly spectacular. It just felt so nostalgic being there, even saw a gypsy or two but no Esmerelda though. Sadly we didn’t go inside mainly down to the fact that there were huge queues and we were on a tight schedule. Plus I just hate people haha. With So much to see with so little time it was time to move on to the next attraction. Next up on our walk was Musee du Louvre.
So this was one queue we did stay in line for. We spent around 2 hrs in the queue but it was all worth it just to see Miss Mona Lisa herself. I haven’t included pictures of the artwork or the interior as I don’t want to ruin the experience for anyone else so all I can do is recommend that you go, seriously. I didn’t realise how big the museum is. We were there for a good few hours and we still didn’t manage to see everything. I could have easily spent the whole day there but we still had more of Paris to see. Also a good thing to know for if and when you do go is that visitors under 18 or 18- 25 year old residents of the EU have free admission so if you fit that criteria it’s more of a reason to go. Okay, moving on to the last attraction on our list. Can you guess what it is?
Yes, it’s the Eiffel Tower. I obviously saved the best for last. The tower of all towers. Another queue worth waiting in line for. The whole trip I was like an excited puppy and you can see why. Just look at this beauty. From the ground looking up it didn’t look that high but I immediately took back that remark when I got to the top. I’m usually fine with heights but being that high just made me a little but uneasy but not for too long. I didn’t get to see all of Paris from the ground but I sure did see all of Paris up there and boy was it spectacular. You can’t beat a 360 degree view of Paris.
Obviously when in Paris one must look Tres Chic so hopefully one did not disappoint. What do you think?
