A Day in Paris
In a land of fairytales, romance and endless French kisses why would anyone want to waste one moment sleeping. That’s how I felt the first time I visited Paris. I didn’t want one moment to go to waste. Here is a very short but sweet look into my experience.
The Arc de Triomphe, located on the western end of the Champs Élysées in the eighth arrondis- sement and is one of Paris’ most famous monuments. Napoleon commissioned the monument after the victory of Austerlitz in 1806. I enjoyed visiting this beautiful landmark. The energy that surrounds it is somewhat like a mild and very classy version of Times Square in New York City.
Only a few blocks down I had to make my way to the Louis Vuitton flagship store. In 1854, Louis Vuitton opened his first store in Paris, where he specialized in finely made trunks, hat boxes, and other luxury luggage for. There was something very special about walking into the original LV store. I was extremely excited as you can see!
As far as French cuisine goes, everything was tasty but the street food was amazing. Crêpes are one of the few street foods you can find all around Paris and I made it a point to have at least two everyday while I was there. My favorite little spot was Creperie Josselin. You can have a crepe for breakfast, lunch or a perfect dessert. Even though they are full of flavor they are also very light on the stomach and very pretty to look at.
Sadly, this stay was a very short one but I did make the best out of it. If you ever decide to take a trip to The City of Love you can use this very useful website to make sure you do everything the right way. http://en.parisinfo.com/
