Paris Travel Guide
Back in November after Thanksgiving dinner my boyfriend started driving towards a direction that wasn’t home. I knew we were going on a short trip, but the destination was unknown to me. He instructed me to pack a bag with warm clothes. How non-descriptive right? Thank goodness I had my best friend, who knew the destination, at hand to tell me to not bring my Columbia jacket and instead my camel pea coat. PHEW.
As we pass the first airport sign in Baltimore, Josh hands me a gift bag. I’m the most anxious person in the world. I didn’t take the news well that I wasn’t going to know my final destination until moments before arrival at the airport. I opened the bag and inside was a tour guide-book of Paris. Because I know Josh, I assumed it was a joke and we were headed towards Paris, Arkansas, or something he would find hilarious. It took about 10 minutes of pure confusion for him to convince me, we were in fact on our way to a flight that would take us all the way to the most romantic city in the world. (WHO DOES THIS?!!?) –Josh, apparently.
I was apprehensive about sharing a “travel guide” of my trip to Paris because it was such a personal trip for me. I tried my best to stay in the moment and soak in every single second while we were there. As a blogger, I constantly am taking photos and notes of places in order to share, but this trip was a little different for me. I brought only my cell phone around and didn’t write down a single restaurant that we went to. (I don’t regret it either!)
But after crowd-sourcing on Instagram and sharing a ton of snaps I took from my phone, I thought I could put together a little something for those who want to hop on the crazy train and take a trip like we did.
