“You never forget your first trip to Paris” that’s how the saying goes and I mean,yes,the accuracy is on steroids! 👏🏽👏🏽
So I happen to be one of the ‘tourists’ cough cough that fell in love with Paris and decided to blog about it.If we went to high school together,you probably know how much I loved my French lessons.I was literally the je,tu the il,elle of the class.Yes it was meant to be funny!😄 and no you don’t have a sense of humor!
I vividly remember all our Paris and Quebec class presentations(maybe because I did them all)🙈😂Bottom line! Going to Paris was a dream come true and honestly,I had an awesome time all thanks to my best friend and partner in crime Anel ❤️❤️….from making good looking french waiters explain restaurant menus in English to….getting wasted at Champs de mars on cheap wine,we started calling everyone La Croix! (This should be illegal)
So here are some of my Paris pictures and definitely some of the places you should visit when you go to Paris! Let me be your tour guide!
You will get overwhelmingly tired from trying to study the maps and see everything.We decided to spend 9 hours in the museum and no you can’t finish everything in a day! At some point we didn’t even know where to find “sortie” (exit) and my feet were complaining.Definitely wear comfy shoes! and take some water with you.Its only when I left the museum that I realised how magnificent it really is…I just wanted to go back and do it all over again !! Also,you don’t necessarily need to love art and history to enjoy le louvre! I personally don’t have a deep rooted passion,but I had a good time.There is also a real mummy in louvre museum!Yup I’m still picking my jaw up from the floor ! I had a lot of emotions going on whilst looking at it !
J’ai eu un coup de foudre! It was honestly love at first sight! 🥰 Everyone says the Eiffel Tower is overrated and non non non! (Insert french accent) It’s beautiful,you never get tired of looking at it.I think it’s a lot more interesting at night when it lights up and performs a bedazzling show nonetheless,it’s also really breathtaking in the afternoon when you’re sitting on the bus and happen to just pass by ! Gosh🤩 ….I mean good company and a bottle of wine at the champs de Mars (a really vast public garden surrounding the tower) should definitely be on your bucket list! 😜
It’s a shame I never got to see inside but I will ! It’s good to just check it out too.❤️
This is probably so shallow of me but if you would like to find out the significance of these monuments and their historical backgrounds please google! I didn’t want this page to be a history lesson ! If you go down Champs-Élysées you will find yourself at Place de la Concorde.Now if your google maps skills are impeccably polished,from Place de la Concorde,you can either go to Tuileries garden (definitely try the rides unless you go to Disney)! Or you check out the National Assembly or find your way to place de vendome which is not far or you can take a look at hotel de crillon a really lavish hotel ! If you’re determined enough you can look for a street called rue faubourg saint honoré .There are a lot of designer shops! 😊I would recommend this over Champs-Élysées 🙊 Also your chances of bumping into Kylie Jenner are higher there hahah
The Sacré Coeur is 106 years old ! There is an amazing panoramic view of Paris from the top but you have to go up 237 stairs ! You get to see how big Paris really is ! And how small the Eiffel Tower seems from up there haha ! Inside the church you can pay for a candle that you light up and say a little prayer. ‘This lil light o mine I’m gon let it shine!🎤🎧🎼
Did you know ❓❓❓‼️‼️‼️
Paris tourism statistics have seen a record number of visitors, surpassing 40 million in 2018. France is the most visited country in the world. In 2016, tourism contributed a total of 198.3 billion euros to GDP in France, while tourism employment created 2.8 billion jobs, both directly and indirectly.
In case you’re wondering why Monalisa has that much security in the louvre museum despite her size…..if you get what I’m trying to say 😉
I mean,I have lots of pictures but it’s going to be too long a blog post ! I hope you liked it ! 🤗 see you in Paris soon🤩🇫🇷
Side note : please tell the French minister du tourisme that I need a 4 week free pass and free accommodation in a 5 star hotel the next time I visit,so that I properly do my work as a French blogger 🤓 thanks!
