As you may know, this Christmas, myself and the boy popped off to Paris for a five days. I am a bargain hunter and an avid trip adviser user. I love nothing more than deciding on a place to visit and spending hours and hours researching the best place to stay, the best things to do, and of course the best places to eat. Some may think that I am taking the fun out of discovering a city but I see it more as fitting more things in. Believe you me I don’t always follow my own rule book when it comes to my travels, if I don’t stick to my own schedule its not the end of the world, you will always stumble on things that other people may not have when you are away, as they say one persons trash is another persons treasure. Well all I can say is that Paris really is a treasure, its history, architecture it has a certain je ne sais quoi that makes you just fall in love with it. I thought I would count down for you my favorite haunts in Paris, I would like to thank my beautiful girl Amy from These girls turn heads and her mum for helping me discover these as wonderful places after sending me an extensive email list, now we all love a list don’t we? Any way onto my top 10…
The River Seine
Hotel De Ville
The Louvre is one of the most famous museums in Paris, housed in an old Palace it holds some of the most famous art work in the world. The photo of myself above its outside the glass pyramid and it was full of people taking photos as you can see. At most it will cost you 14 Euros for a ticket inside the actual museum, but beware the queues can be very long, but this is the case with many of the tourist attractions in Paris.
you are in Paris you must go and visit this beautiful cathedral. We were lucky
enough to visit this on Christmas Eve and were able to enjoy the Christmas
Mass (which is normally filmed world wide), on screens outside. You could also
queue to go inside and light a candle, which I did and it was a really special
experience. I am not religious but I really enjoyed seeing this. If you are
brave enough you can climb the stairs of Notre Dame to the top, with a knee
injury I thought it was best I skipped that bit but I ever went back I certainly
would have a go.
