Extremely late follow up to my first Paris post, but better late than never! As some of you may remember, last month I was lucky enough to visit Disneyland/Paris for a few days. These photos are from our last day when we headed into the city. We climbed the Eiffel Tower (yes, climbed - we didn't realise you could buy a ticket to use an elevator until we were halfway up!), went on a cruise down the Seine and learned some of the history of Paris, and took in some amazing views from the top the Arc de Triomphe on the evening, with a bit of window shopping and eating in between.
The weather was most definitely not on our side, but we donned rain coats, ponchos and umbrellas and soldiered on! Besides, Paris looks rather beautiful in the rain, don't you think? Thankfully, the sun was out for us by the afternoon but our view from the top of the Eiffel Tower in the morning looked a little something like this...
Thrilling, right?! After a disastrous but very fun visit to the Eiffel Tower, we ate...
Took in the views...
And went on the hunt for the most cliched Parisian spots we could find.
...It really is one of those places that looks exactly how you'd expect it to.
On our walk around the city we passed more designer shops than I could count, gorgeous architecture and the odd supercar or three. Can I just move here now, please?!
Laduree was on my list of spots I wanted to visit in Paris, so I was thrilled when I accidentally stumbled upon it in the evening. I adore macarons and theirs are touted as the best in the world, so of course I had to sample a few. Plus, the gorgeous packaging is worth buying the macarons for alone! I went for a gift box in their signature pale green and gold as I though it'd be a nice little keepsake.
It was stunning.
After a very long day, I was more than happy to collapse into bed with a book and my macarons, which, by the way, were amazing. If you ever visit Laduree I wholeheartedly recommend the salted caramel and the rose macarons - they are to die for!
...And that's it! Hope you've enjoyed my Paris posts. I'm pining to go back already!
