Bonjour!! Walter and I took a trip to Paris, France a couple weeks ago. Paris is exciting, beautiful, and definitely a City that never sleeps. We spent five days there, and it was a great trip despite it being unseasonably warm. I enjoyed all of the museums, food, wine, and of the course the fashion.
The first day we arrived in the afternoon. We were both a little jet-lagged, but we still took a walk around the City, and past The Notre Dame Cathedra, the “Musee du Louvre,” and ate escargot at a local cafe. The snails tasted pretty good!
Day 2 in Paris, the first thing we did was of course visited the Eiffel Tower.
We also visited The Grand Palais, A Louis Vuitton Store, Arc de Triumphe, The Jardin Du Luxembourg, Place De L’Opera, and the Sacre-Coeur, and ate some delicious Macaroons.
Day 3, we visited the Palais Galliera, where the exhibit was Dalida’s (A French entertainer) garments that she wore throughout her career.
We also visited another art museum; Musee D’Orsay where we saw some amazing art. We also ate some delicious crepes for lunch, visited Place Vendome (a high-end shopping center) and then had some wine, cheese, and Creme Brulee for dinner. In the evening, we also walked a little more and took a glimpse at Moulin Rouge.
Day 4, we started the day out by taking lunch cruise, and toured the whole city while eating a delicious meal and dessert.
After the cruise, we visited the “The Foundation Louis Vuitton” and “Afriques Capitales” where both had an African art exhibit.
Of course, we had more delicious wine and cheese, and visited the Eiffel Tower again to see it all lit up after dark.
Day 5, was our last full day in Paris. We had another delicious breakfast and after that we stopped by the “Lu Musee Du Chocolat,” and learned a little bit about the history of chocolate and had some delicious samples.
After the museum, we took it easy and walked around. It was still very hot, but that still didn’t stop us. We went inside The Notre Dame Cathedral, visited a few other gardens, the Terrasse Panoramique where we got to see the whole view of Paris, and went inside the Paris Catacombs. Our last meal included more cheese and wine!
We flew back home bright and early the next day. I can’t wait to back to Europe again soon! Bon Voyage!!
