Paris, that was always such a far off dream of mine to visit one day. This year that dream unexpectedly came true. My friend Bri and I were so excited to be able to go together. The French tourism company Atout France had a trip put together that would take us on some tours, teach us things we may have never learned before, and show us some of their favorite spots. Thanks to Air France who was a big sponsor on our trip, we got to fly economy class on the way over. I had no problem resting the whole way because we had plenty of room to stretch and cuddle 😊
Our first stop on the trip? The W hotel, right in the heart of Paris. The room was beautiful and I was in awe, complete awe of this city. Our room over looked a busy corner and I took some time to take it all in while we drank our bottle of complimentary champagne.
That night we had some free time, and since Bri had been to Paris before she had some favorite spots she wanted to take me. For dinner we went to Derrière .So stinking good and great decor inside, it did not disappoint.
After getting some much needed sleep, the next day held some yummy food , beautiful sights, and some fun shopping. The chefs at Le Dam de pic prepared a delicious meal that we got to share with some contributors for this trip. That evening we all went to Paradis Latin. I had no idea what to expect. I had never been to a cabaret show before so I went in blind. We walked in and got the scoop on the history of the the place, it was quite intriguing. Now for the show! The girls came out topless in crazy beautiful costumes and of course good boobs haaa. The sets were insane! There were guys in the show as well which made for a giggle when they were doing karate moves (not kidding about the karate moves). All in all we laughed and ate and enjoyed every minute.
The next day we stopped in for lunch at Fauchon. Pink pink and pink!! Loved how beautiful their dessert was and they had yummy food.
Next we had a little tour planned with a Wonderful Time. They took us through a cute town Ru de Levi . I bought some great olive oil there and a Nutella like butter, So good! They showed us around the town and boutique shops. Then we headed over to a little farmers market where we picked up wine and cheese and fruit for a picnic, I recommend using them if your interested in seeing parts of Paris you wouldn’t normally see.
With picnic in tow we then headed over to the Eiffel Tower, I just had to see it! WOWZERS! Then made our way to one of my favorite spots on the trip, Lle de la Citet. The sun was coming down… We found a spot in the midst of a big group of young people who had picnics and drinks packed just like us. It was unreal and a magical way to spend our last day in Paris.
Just a short train ride away from Paris is the adorable town of Reims.The town was unreal. I kept looking around thinking, is this a joke? It looks like a stinking movie set! We met up with a tourist guide there who showed us all around and gave us some history on the town. The Cathedral de Notre dam was a breathtaking sight… Pictures do no justice. Later we made our way to a little hotel Le Castel Jeanston. The hotel was quaint and the town was super quiet. Super super quiet. Bri and I took a walk that evening and almost couldn’t find a sign of life. We did find a cute crepe place to eat for dinner though.
Next morning we headed out for champagne tasting on the Avenue de Champagne, a street lined with famous champagne houses. I learned so much about champagne including the fact it’s a wine Haaa, and also it’s to be enjoyed minus the O.J, Who knew?
Later we headed over to our hotel in Troyes ,Maison de Rhodes .It was so so lovely! Bri and I did have an episode in our room that was hilarious. We were both napping, with the windows wide open. Bri woke me up screaming! A GAINT wasp found its way into my room and was napping with me on my head!!! We ran and hid in the bathroom for a good 15 minutes till we felt the coast was clear. This town in particular, I loved. I spent lots of time walking the streets and stopping in little shops and bars.. So much character and lots of people, I love that.
Our trip together was coming to an end. We had dinner at the Brassiere le jardin. Giggled and reminisced about the time we had on our trip and of course drank more champagne 😁 .This trip was so great! Thanks to Atout France and Air France for making our trip so memorable. My glass stayed full and so did my belly. I can’t wait to visit France again, cannot wait. Oh and p.s. we used Tep Wireless devices on our trip. This gave us wifi whenever we needed it! It’s a must have! I LOVE FRANCE!
