A Week in Paris

Our adventure began in the UK, where we had the opportunity to explore London for the first time and ended in France; one of my favourite countries in the world.

Prior to this trip, the only plan I had was to travel solo to Burgundy (a historical region in east-central France) for a photography workshop and retreat. But in the back of my mind, Paris kept yelling its name. It really would have been foolish of me to not see this city again after almost 5 years! So, a week in Paris we went.

We stayed in the heart of Paris at Hôtel Alexandrine Opéra located in the 8th arrondissement; just a few minutes away from Montmartre and only 10 minutes away from the Eiffel Tower.

The view from our home away from home was breathtaking! Waking up to this every morning only made us fall in love with the city even more.

Our days consisted of strolling through the beautiful Parisian gardens such as Jardin du Luxembourg and Jardin des Tuileries, finding inspiration at Musée Rodin and The Louvre, shopping in Champs-Élysées and Le Merais, watching a cabaret during a midnight in Paris, and so much more.

On my last day in Paris before I left for Burgundy, we visited Versailles where we got to tour inside the château and catch the sunset in the garden which is an absolute must! After relaxing at Château de Versailles, we headed back to Paris and treated ourselves with steak frites at La Fontaine de Mars.

A week in Paris was just a dream. Je t'aime Paris. Until next time!
