Paris Travel Photo Diary Day #1

Bonjour comment allez-vous?
Welcome back to another photo travel diary post! Today is my first batch of Paris photos. I was lucky enough to get to venture to Paris with my most bestest friend (yes I consider that to be a word) to experience all the amazing-ness of what this incredible city had to offer! We were there for 4 days and I want to share via photos what we got up to. I'm hoping this also might serve of some value to anyone who is considering going to Paris or is already planning to and trying to figure out what to see and do in a short amount of time! 

On the train from London a touch excited (we went on the Euro star and it was great - comfy seats, reasonable price and got us to the centre of Paris in two hours)

My first meal, tomato and mozzarella salad (of course I had some French baguette with it too!)  

Ahhhh the Eiffel Tower, so iconic! It had a giant tennis ball on it whilst we were there as the French Open was on

Such a cool way to display beautiful flowers - loved! 

The chimneys in Paris = heart loves

The view from the second level of the Eiffel Tower - such an incredible view!
This is something I would defiantly recommend doing if you ever go to Paris, and I would also 100% recommend buying a skip the line ticket. We were up and seeing this incredible view with no waiting in line, it was amazing! (the line tends to be 4hrs + wait). I booked our tickets through Easy Pass Tours and would wholeheartedly recommend, they were great! LINK HERE!

My beautiful bestie with her front backpack on to avoid anyone pickpocketing

Looking up from the second level

Paris...its love. I love the whiteness of the city and how feminine everything is

Lol my bestie makes me laugh a lot

And then she actually licked the Eiffel Tower, one to tick off the bucket list!

The view from the very tippy top!

Hitting up a bit of yoga whilst enjoying the view tehehe

That night we decided to have a relax and enjoy a 'picnic' of sorts in our hotel whilst watching Friends in French. We had a lovely lady at the supermarket show us the best wine and cheese to have, such a gem! The strawberries in Paris were the sweetest most amazing strawberries I've EVER had! They were like a dessert they were just so sweet!

Day one was a success!
Tips and tricks:
- Book a skip the line ticket to avoid wasting time standing for hours waiting
- Book a hotel near the sights, I promise it is worth it to pay a bit extra to be only a walk away from everything. That way if your tired and want a break you can easily return
- Be wary of pickpockets and scammers, nothing to worry about as if your aware you wont have a worry
- Have a bag with a zip or tie so you always know when its closed
- Make friends with the locals, best Camembert I've ever tasted!
Stay tuned for more


  1. Lovely photos! Paris is a city I never really feel like I've managed to crack. I feel like I've seen a lot of London, Milan (obvs), Rome.. but Paris is always a bit elusive! It doesn't matter how much time I spend there, I feel like it's hiding lots of secrets still :) glad you had such a lovely time, if you're still there, book a table at Breizh Cafè for the BEST crepes and cider! xxx
