Recently, I was extremely lucky to go on such an amazing weekend away to Paris courtesy of Travel Supermarket and with my blogger friend Rebecca of Futures
It came at the perfect time for me as it had been 2 weeks since me and Jordan split and I needed a bit of travel, fresh air, and some girly fun. Despite us getting there being a nightmare and stressing us out, when we got to our hotel La Belle Juliette, we found out we had been upgraded to a Junior Suite! OMG ALL of the yays!
Paris is always a good idea and here is a photo diary of just some of the bits we got up to...
The first thing I got us to do was to go all the way to the Sommet (to the top) of the Eiffel Tower. No matter how many times I have been up there, I just don't get bored of the views and the fact I can see all of Paris
Paris is my favourite city ever, and it is hard not to fall in love with it when at the top of its most iconic landmark
We also took one of the open bus tours after spending a lot of time at the Eiffel Tower. The Louvre had a massive queue, so we had a look at their glass pyramids and hopped back on the bus down to the Champs Elysses, where we hopped off and took some pics of the Arc de Triomphe, before walking down to Laduree so I could scoff and buy all of their macarons
In the evening, we attended a talk that was arranged by Travel Supermarket and was part of Paris's writers festival. We saw famous Irish author Edna O'Brien and she spoke so poetically
We ended up doing so much on Saturday, and we still had plenty of time to explore on Sunday so we left Notre Dame as a Sunday visit. In hindsight, we probably should have done it on the Saturday also! I forgot Sunday mass would be on. I felt a bit rude being touristy as Sunday mass was going on
I also lit a tealight for my Nan and for my Grandad whom have sadly passed and left me grandparent-less. I am not religious, but it was something I felt that needed to be done as some final closure for me and a form of my love
You also can't forget the many macarons I bought, scoffed and enjoyed. I think I ended up eating 36 over the course of 2 days which is quite a lot of sugar consumed! #obsessedmuch?
I hope you enjoyed my little insight into my weekend in Paris! You can also see more of my Instagram pictures using the hashtag #SuperCityBreaks
Do you love Paris? Any recommendations of things for me to do when I next go back to Paris?
