My trip to Paris

As many of you know I visited Paris last month with my best friend, so I thought I'd share some photos with you!

I was there for 4 days and loved every single minute of it.  What a beautiful city Paris is, I'd go back in a heartbeat.  I squeezed a lot of touristy things into 4 days but I still have so much more to see and do; I have an excuse to go back, right?

I visited the Louvre, eventually!  I have wanted to visit for years as I love museums (geek) and it was fantastic.  I only spent half a day there so I only seen a fraction of the pieces on show.  I wanted to see the Egyptian artifacts and Da Vinci's work most so I cut my time down, otherwise I could have spent the whole weekend there.  I hadn't realised how huge the Louvre is!  I'll definitely go back so I can spend more time looking around.

Of course I had to visit the Eiffel Tower!  I went both at night and during the day.  Night time was my favourite due to the light show, it is spectacular.  I highly recommend waiting around for the light show, which lasts for 5 minutes every hour. 

One of my favourite sights was the Catacombs.  Basically, its a mass grave below the streets of Paris.  There are literally millions of skeletons down there and it was interesting /creepy /fascinating.  It did feel a little claustrophobic at times but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

I did so much, I don't want to bore you all by going into detail about everything so I will just say this - there is so much to see and do in Paris.  And it wasn't as expensive as other cities I've visited, so you get a lot for your money.  One thing I did hate was the food.  I am definitely not a fan!  I was a typical Brit and visited a few British pubs and McDonalds, don't judge me!  Call me fussy, but frogs legs and snails just aren't my thing...



  1. Ahh it looks like you had the best time! I've never been but I definitely want to very soon! I think it would be very easy to disappear into the Louvre for a whole weekend! <3
