TIME TRAVEL THURSDAY: PARIS & VERSAILLES

PariswithErin-93_WEBWith 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!).

PariswithErin-204_WEBAs 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!
