So happy I can finally share my travel diary of my amazing trip to Paris a couple of weeks ago…
I’m not going to type too much so that you can just enjoy the photos, but I want to say that Paris is the most beautiful city full of romance, amazing food, beautiful people and life. I am still feeling inspired by the long walks, the beautiful architecture, the sunset time, the precious cafes everywhere, the energy, the abundance of sweets and amazing views of just about anything. And of course by the marvelous and extravagant Beyonce and Jay Z concert, that I have to say made that night the most amazing night we have ever spent. If I close my eyes and think about it I still get goosebumps from all those flashing lights, beautiful embellished costumes, the amazingness of Queen B, that presence Jay had, all the screaming, those thousand lights everyone lit at the end (see here), when Nicki Minaj emerged in all her glory (here) and just from the energy that I will surely never feel at a Romanian concert.
Also if you’re a fashionista, plan to do your shopping in Le Marais along Rue des Francs-Bourgeois and Avenue Montaigne. Don’t fill up on street crepes covered in Nutella, save some room for tea and macaroons. Whether you visit Ladurée or Pierre Hermé, you simply must sample some of these famous French delicacies. Always savor over coffee and croissants like a Parisien, meaning that you should sip your espresso at a café with good people-watching or at least grab a cup to go and sit in a local park to enjoy it. Parisiens really take time to enjoy their coffee and you should too. Keep in mind that this city is so walkable and you shouldn’t waste money on cabs; instead you can just hop in a bakery and grab a baguette, then find your way to Seine, sit along the water and enjoy life for a few moments. Don’t forget to “get lost” on Ile St. Louis and wander through the charm this island has.
Enjoy these photos!
