Oh Paris! How I dreamed of traveling to such a beautiful city. A city so filled with culture, charm and romance was definitely on my bucket list as well. After a few days in London, I took a quick 2 Eurostar train ride to Paris. Even though we arrived on a rainy day it was still charming as ever. Paris reminded me very much of New York, incredible architecture, lots of people scrambling and great food. I stayed further out from the center city by a busy canal but was easily able to explore everything Paris had to offer by doing what the locals do best a take the Metro. From the moment we arrived Paris was nothing but an adventure. Our first night we wandered around and discovered La Rotonde - Stalingrad, that played amazing tunes while we sipped Rosé. We later ended up befriending some locals and dancing the night away to a samba band. No complaints there.

Paris romanced us with its too cool for school attitude and sweet charm which surrounded us on every street. From the Eiffel Tower standing tall over the city to the department store Printemps, confirming the belief that Barbie's dream house truly does exist, Paris was lovely. 


A trip to Paris wasn't complete without delicious food & treats! 
Macarons were a must! 
I also reunited with an old friend that I had not seen in 7 years! Sweet Aline treated us to dinner and took us to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Such a treat!

Like the saying goes, Paris is always a good idea.
