Honeymoon – Paris
August 6, 2018
I know everybody has been waiting with bated breath for the final installment of our honeymoon series 😉 In all seriousness, we’ve just left Provence and ended our trip in good ole Paris! Paris, thus far, has been my favourite city in the world. I’ve been told other places will prove that otherwise, and I’m keen to be proven wrong so will add them to my bucket list. But, for now, Paris remains the reigning King.
Everything about Paris brings me pure joy. The architecture is absolutely stunning, food is mouth-watering, people (yes, the people) are so lovely, and the plethora of gardens to sunbathe during a sunny picnic are endless. Not to mention the ability to have vin rouge every day with lunch and dinner (<– this was the hardest holiday habit to break when I returned to America!). We decided to splurge a wee bit on our Airbnb so that this princess could wake up to a view of the Eiffel Tower every morning (even if it was just the tip! Your head’s in the gutter not mine!). This view was not taken for granted I promise you that. I soaked it in deeply every single day we were in Paris. I mean just look at these beautiful buildings!
Lying down on that ^ bed gave us the most spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower and we fell asleep watching it light up every night.
The best part about eatings LOTS of bread and drinking LOTS of wine (besides doing exactly that) was knowing how much we walked around the city. I think I might’ve even lost weight over the trip!

We walked our way to the train station and headed to Versailles. I’d been before but wanted to do the majorly cheesy headphones tour and relearn everything from my high school days. It was incredibly interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit!
The crowds, however, were also just as keen as us. I’ve never been around so many people! The moment we finished our tour, we explored the beautiful gardens for a while and then headed back to Paris to escape the heat and the crowds.
True to our touristy selves, we got on a boat tour of Paris right when we got back. Who are we?! haha. To be frank, it wasn’t the best idea… however, the best part was people watching! (I’m such a grandma…) We spotted bands on the river bank…
… as well as sunbathers galore.
Famished after a very long day of being tourists, we went to one of the best restaurants in Paris called Big Love which is known for its delicious gluten free pizza. A must if you’re into cool vibes, delicious cocktails, and even better tasting pizzas!
I was quite shite with my camera towards the end of our trip because, truthfully, I found it exhausting and wanted to switch off a wee bit and enjoy moments with Eddie. I don’t think anyone here can fault me for not taking pictures of the pizza we ate, yeah? 😉 We were in Paris for about three days total and so I’ve only got pictures documented of one day. Perhaps I’ll go back and do a proper guide of Paris and my favourite things to do whilst there. Perfect excuse to return, eh?
Thank you for being so patient with me as I published these months after our return. It’s been really fun looking back on our trip, and I feel truly blessed for such a fun and relaxing honeymoon trip. Travel is in my DNA and so I’ll definitely be back to France and hopefully exploring plenty of new places in the upcoming years.
