An Adventure In Paris

If you follow me on twitter or instagram you may know that I recently spent a long weekend in Paris. While in Parwee ( say with a terrible french accent) I was bitten by the blogging bug again so with my camera in hand I attempted to be a cool blogger and document my trip. The key word in that sentence is TRY so que the first awkward outfit pictures in a long time under the Eiffel Tower, cliche I know!

I'm sure it is a sin to wear a faux chanel anything in Paris but what can I say I rarely think that far ahead. Anyhoo after a few typical touristy pictures by the Eiffel Tower, which I highly recommend doing early in the morning (10am here) to avoid the horrendous fool doing the duck pout selfie and photo bombing all your photos. Can you tell this happened to me and I may still be a bit bitter? haha. So after that off we went up the Eiffel Tower and after countless stairs ( that one gym class a week really helped) we made it to take in the breath taking views.
Wow wee so pretty! 
After an hour Oooing and Aaahing at the top we made our way down and carried on our adventure at the Louvre. Que awkward teacup pose, you can tell I am a rusty blogger!

Sadly we didn't get a chance to go into the museum as the que was gigantic and we had little time as it was to fit in everything. This will be top of my list to do on my next trip to Parwee ( remember say it in a terrible French Accent.) Next stop on our whistle top adventure was the lovers lock bridge which was in fact a lot prettier than I thought it would be and I'm glad we went to see it as the next day apparently part of it collapsed! I hope the lock bridge breaking doesn't bring bad luck to any of those lovers. I took a real liking to this lamppost in particular. 
We took a well earnt rest after all that walking and order this amazing passionfruit sorbet nom nom I could have eaten it twice over. I was feeling slightly reckless.... who am I kidding it was happy hour I couldn't say no and ordered a Mojito. On a serious note ladies I work in insurance so I am pretty used to going for drinks at lunch etc but good god this Mojito was so strong once finished I was feeling very 'boozed' and as such when I got back to our hotel I went for a nap. Not very classy but I promise it was just the one Mojito!! haha.

Have you been to Paris recently? Is there anything I really should have gone to see? Part 2 of this day will be back up soon, I got a new wind of life after that nap!

  1. Oh I love Paris! :) My boyfriend and I put a lock on Pont des Arts on my 21st birthday! I suspect it's long gone by now though...
