Wayne and I spent two-and-a-bit lovely days in Paris recently and I thought it would be nice to share what we got up to in case anyone is planning a trip to the City of Lights. Paris was the first place we visited as a couple and now that we are married we decided to go back and spend some time meandering through the pretty streets in the run up to Christmas.
I thought it would be nice to make a short film of our break as while pictures can speak a thousand words, video can speak about a million.
Two days in Paris
Video by me, music So Good to Me (Radio Edit) by Chris Malinchak
Where We Stayed: Hotel Bellevue in Montmartre. Clean, cosy and while it’s pretty basic it’s in a great location and a double room costs less than £40 a night.
Where We Went: Everywhere! But the Christmas markets on the Champs Elysees and the tour of Roland Garros (where the French Open is held) were highlights, as was Place du Trocadero for great views of the Eiffel Tower (main picture).
What We Ate: Smoked sausages and creamy mushrooms at the Christmas market; a three course meal for less than 15 euros a head at Chez Marie (including the best onion soup ever!)
Have you been to Paris? Do you have any top tips of places to visit? We’re going back again in March as Wayne is running the Paris half marathon so any info will be gratefully received!
Lots of Parisian love,
