Paris Photo Diary

Paris Photo Diary - View From The Arc de Triomphe

My time in Paris was incredible, very cold but undeniably stunning. I hadn’t been in Paris since I was around eleven years old so it was really interesting to return and see which things I remembered and which things felt like brand new. I spent a week and a bit wandering, with very little plan other than where I eventually wanted to end up. I ventured out and spent a day at my favourite place in the world, Versailles, and spent quite a lot of time exploring the grand magasins, too.

I stayed in two incredible Airbnbs, one with a seriously incredible view of Notre Dame out the window and from the balcony (there’s a pic below, with the two chairs on the balcony) and another up in Republique which was cosy and oh-so-Parisian.

Here are a few happy snaps from my time in Paris. It was overcast and hazy for most of the time that I was there so forgive the often quite dreary light in the pictures. Next week, I’ll be happy to put up an photo diary from Italy, if you want a few more pics from my trip.

  • I love Paris, I think I’ve been 3-4 times now and everytime it’s still so magical and charming! Airbnb was not around then but what an amazing way to be able to stay in chic Parisian apartments! Next time I go, I will definitely be doing it through Airbnb. Hope your trip was amazing!

    • I really loved staying in Airbnbs while in Paris, it made it so easy to travel around and really felt like I was a Parisian for a week and a bit! haha There are some seriously beautiful ones but they can be kind of pricey :/ so it’s worth really looking around at what’s available!

    Ah such beautiful pictures, I’ve been to Paris a couple of times but that was before the whole Airbnb thing came about, so it’d be really interesting to go back there now and stay in one because I feel like that would completely change the experience. Also, yes to the Italy photo diary! I’m Italian so I’m bias, but Italy has got to be one of my favourite places in the world. Also…the food contributes to that, haha

    • Yeah I think it really did make the experience feel a little more special, even though that does sound totally lame! haha oh Italy is just incredible – I didn’t know you were Italian! Florence is definitely one of my favourite cities on earth!

  • Oh the memories!! Paris is such a beautiful place!! Hope you had an awesome time!!
