I saved the best for last. Today I’m sharing the experience we had in Paris, Frace! I don’t know where to start. Besides it being the most expensive city ever (lol), I loved every minute of it.
When we arrived in Paris with our Contiki family, we wasted no time and headed straight to the Eiffel Tower. It was the perfect time in the late afternoon right before the golden hour. It was so nice that we didn’t have to wait in the long line (one of the amazing perks of doing a Contiki tour) so our adrenaline was pumping with excitement! It was a bucket list moment for me when we took the elevator up to the very top. I couldn’t believe I was about to experience the famous Eiffel Tower. The cherry on top of it all was the fact that I had my man right by my side. It was seriously the best feeling.
When we got to the top, my breath was taken away by the gorgeous view. I kept screaming to Stevie, “OMG WE’RE IN PARIS!!!!!!!” It felt like we were on top of the world.
This was just the beginning. We spent the next day exploring the city and getting lost of course. We decided to help one of our new Contiki friends plan his proposal to his girlfriend. My job was to hold the ring in my purse (so nerve-wrecking!!!) and to keep her distracted while him and Stevie navigated to the proposal location. I was soon excited for them! (You’ll see more of this in the Europe vlog soon). P.S We did the Love Lock Bridge! (even though they’re removing locks because of how heavy it’s getting). It was still fun for us to experience as a newly married couple.
For our last night in Paris with Contiki, we all went to a cabaret show which was seriously one of the funnest nights we remember from our trip. It included a delicious 3-course meal (drinks included!!) in the most intimate setting. The show was fantastic. It included so many fun acts. We saw dancers, magicians and laser beam acts! So fun!
What’s a trip to Paris without visiting Laduree? Mmmm!!
I kept it pretty casual in Paris since I knew there was a lot to see! I wanted to enjoy exploring so I traded in my heels for comfortable shoes. If you want outfit details, you can shop all the looks directly below 🙂
Oh Paree! How I miss you so much. Can’t wait to go back. I’m excited to finish up my Europe Vlog which will share more details from our entire trip. Stay tuned!
