TIME TRAVEL THURSDAY: PARIS & VERSAILLES
With everything happening in Paris at the moment, I decided to finally finish editing my vacation photos from my trip to Paris this past Summer. I never finished! I blogged about 10 things I think you should know about Paris (you can read that HERE!) But I got into busy season and didn’t have time to edit the rest of the photos. It was great to re-live the memories from the city of light. It was one of my greatest trips to date… I traveled with my friend Erin, who I’ve known for EIGHTEEN years, y’all. BUT half the time she’s at sea – she is a singer/dancer on Carnival Cruise lines! So when she in town, only about 3 months of the year, we have longggg catch-up sessions! She called me out of the blue in May and asked if I wanted to go to Paris… DUH. So that was that. We had a BLAST. We were the best travel buddies – we did any and everything that we wanted to each day. It was an amazing experience through the people we met, the food we ate, and the miles we walked (20+ miles a day!).
When you’re traveling with a dancer….
and then of course we needed to document that I was in fact on this vacay.
Paris is a city full of “my colors” & textures!Walking along the Siene at night is magicalCan you tell that it is sparkling?? It’s the most magical sight!
This had us laughing really hard…How CUTE is this passage?!
Erin walking with out tour guide, Anne!!The Palais Royal with its interest art sculptures…
HOW CUTE ARE THESE KIDS???!!!I lovedddd this walkway!Does this look like a movie set or what?
What a view from the top of this hill!How cute is this guy? Watching him paint was fun.Blue stormy sky, red flowers, and the flag? perf.GO TO VERSAILLES FOR THE DAY!
Versailles, you guys, it’s WORTH THE 2 hour wait in line.
Look at those trees!!!When I saw this garden… I died. GORGEOUS.Erin and I walked through every garden except for 2 that were closed to the public. So much walking and wandering…In love with the giant topiaries that were EVERYWHERE!What we wanted to do in Versailles was wear cute dresses and take photos because duh, it’s so pretty, but instead, it was windy, cold, and rainy so we just took selfies.On my last day in Paris, we climbed the Arc du Triomphe and of course it was sunny and beautiful.
You can see so far from the top!!
As you can see, if you haven’t been to Paris already… you need to put it on the list. It’s full of history, art, delicious desserts that must be eaten at least twice a day (because why not?), and iconic architecture. A day trip to Versailles is a MUST and eating macarons every day is also encouraged. Au Revoir!
