To jumpstart the trip, I thought to make a dream checklist to be ticked as we complete them.

Paris To Do List:

From random and general things, to the big things you do when you go to Paris.

  • Try to speak french as much as you can
  • Try a baguette
  • Try a croissant from a french bakery
  • Try macarons
  • Have at least one fancy dinner!
  • Have a picnic (or a few in a beautiful parisian park…I’m talking baguetes, brie and cheap wine)
  • Cycle through some areas in Paris
  • Try Absinthe (maybe ;))
  • Wine tasting at The Annual October Wine Harvest in Paris.
  • Walk along the river seine
  • Walk around the Latin Quarter (5th arrondissement) • Walk around the Luxembourg gardens
  • Explore montmatre
  • Visit Sacre Coeur
  • Visit Shakesepeare & Co (buy a good book as a memento)
  • Visit the Moulin Rouge
  • Climb Arc de Triomphe
  • Palais Garnie
  • Visit the L’eiffel tour
  • Visit Notre Dame de Paris (bonus for listening to Belle)
  • Pere Lachaise cemeraty
  • Visit the catacombs

    That sounds like so much fun! I hope you had a great time and can’t wait to hear more about all the adventures. I loved walking aimlessly around Paris. Also loved just sitting at a café while sipping vin rouge or chocolate chaud. It was a little cold back when I was there, so I was forced into drinking lots of hot chocolate. 🙂

    • Thank you! It was an amazing adventure like no other! Paris has captured my heart! I agree…that was one of my greatest delights…aimlessly walking by the latin quarter…the seine always managed to find us 😀 Yes! The chocolate chauds made our nights, and we befriended the waitress, even exchanging macaroons and chocolate! 🙂 It was beautiful autumn, full of chills and lovely rain! 😀
