Paris Recap

We’re home! Our trip to Europe was a success, but the hubs and I are happy to be home. It was a long trip with lots of sightseeing and walking. To keep posts to a reasonable length I’m going to make it 2 parts, starting with Paris.

Flights there were good. We arrived on Thursday morning and were able to check into our hotel room early which was a blessing because we were exhausted despite having slept on the flight. Plus we had a view of the tip top of the Eiffel Tower (insert heart eyed emoji). Before arriving, the hubs purchased the Paris Pass which proved to be beneficial for the hop on hop off bus. We spent the majority of Friday touring the city this way and only getting off at the stops we wanted. Sidenote: We purchased the London Pass too so I’ll share a post reviewing them both in case anyone is considering either. Saturday we ventured out early to Palace of Versailles which was breathtaking. Because of the size of the estate we spent the majority of the day there. Sunday we headed off to London by train (our first train ride ever!). Enjoy pictures from Paris…

Later that night we went back to the Eiffel Tower to see it sparkle.  I had read that the best viewpoint was from Palais de Chaillot, right across the Seine from the tower. It proved to be a great location!

I was obsessed with the fall foliage and symmetrical lines of trees.

London’s post will come next Monday. Until next post…xoxo Becca
