Disclaimer: I would highly recommend that you grab a breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack before settling down to read this post. It’s going to be quite the long one, and I promise that I’ll follow up with one of my regular Top 10 Guides at a later date. I couldn’t help but write this much for such a phenomenal trip and for finally crossing Paris off of my bucket list!
For as long as I can remember, it has always been a dream of mine to travel to Paris and to live out all of my most romantic Parisian dreams. This past May, I finally had the chance to cross it off of my bucket list by exploring the city with Peter and our closest Toronto friends—Mel and Dave. When I look back and think about it, it truly felt like a dream. Although we were only there for a short 5 days (I’m already excited at the fact that I’ll be back next month), we did enough to comprise of a month’s worth of memories. Paris is one of those places that you fantasize about—at least for me it was. While other girls may be putting together wedding boards on their Pinterest pages, I put together beautiful places to visit in Paris. I’m not even joking. My life goals and dreams consist of adventures around the world as opposed wedding venues (though it is quickly changing!) or home decor. So you can only imagine the excitement that mounted as the trip of a lifetime drew nearer and nearer! Let’s rewind from the beginning so that I can give you a sense of just how excited I was for the trip.
