This is the final post in my Paris trilogy and it’s all about making the most of what you see – not just in Paris, but anywhere!
I’ve been one to harp on about the ease, speed and cheap expense of using a metro or subway to get around a place, however, it really struck me in Paris just how much you can miss. It’s part of the experience of a new place to visit its “tourist spots”, but some of the best and most beautiful bits are areas or sights that you stumble across completely by accident.
All of the walking is also a good way to burn the calories from all of your (and my own) overindulgences whilst away! As you can see, I have many excuses as to why walking is a good idea – I often holiday with Joel and for an active person, he’s one of the laziest people I know… so I need all the justification I can find.
Paris has some of the most beautiful architecture and quaint side-streets and I absolutely loved being able to see and admire them all as we wandered around during the day and especially at night, when they’re all lit up!
I enjoy, and will continue, researching and planning lots of fabulous eats and drinks before we visit a new place, but after our experiences in Paris, I’m definitely more open to aimlessly exploring different areas and choosing places from the vibe I get a good feel for. We landed some delicious and authentic finds!
You may be reading this thinking “I don’t want to be walking 28974987 miles a day when I’m supposed to be enjoying myself on holiday!”, I hear you and I have a solution for this… Lime Scooters. Revolutionary electric scooters, I mean it.
The way they work:
Download the Lime Scooter App,
Locate a Lime Scooter near to your location,
They pack quite a punch when you get up to top speed and when you ride over cobbles, your head gets serious vibrations, but they are SO much fun! With the breeze in your face, you can zip around the city and not miss a minute of the area that you’re in!
Our trip to Paris was a dream and I really did love every second of it and will definitely be taking some of my travel lessons from this trip on future trips.
