After the exciting but hectic trip to Iceland, we decided to spend a few days in Paris. And I am so glad that we did that.
We took a red-eye from Reykjavik to Paris arriving bright and early at the Charles de Gaulle airport. We were greeted by one of the Blacklane drivers. If you have not heard of this service, you must check them out. It is a professional driver service in 180+ cities where they offer chic black cars and certified drivers which are available to book either via their website or the smartphone app. We used the Blacklane service for both, our airport transfer from and to the airport. They were prompt and professional and we couldn't be happier with the service highly recommend.
Since we had arrived early morning, we requested out airbnb host for a early check-in to which she agreed. We were so excited to find that the airbnb looks just like in the pictures and the neighborhood (Le Marais) was exactly what we had anticipated.
We were welcomed with a beautiful sunny day which started our trip on the right foot. I wanted to check out the Eiffel Tower right away, but we decided to rest, have lunch, and make our way there by the afternoon. Eiffel was as glorious as I had remembered. By the evening time we were exhausted but we pushed through, had a lovely dinner and then called it a night.
The remaining of the trip followed the same pattern. We didn't have a plan or any idea where we would go, but in spite of that we were able to cover most of the city on foot. We walked, observed, ate (a lot!), shopped and did people watching. The four, unplanned days spent on the streets wandering was just what we needed. By the end of it we were rejuvenated and filled with more wanderlust than we had come to the city with. While I will be sharing experiences from the travels in #TravelTuesday posts, below are some of the glimpses from the trip. Also, don't forget to checkout the travel vlog.
