PAIS TAKES PARIS!

April 13, 2017

I CRIED...

 

MY FIRST NIGHT IN PARIS. NOT BECAUSE I WAS HAVING A HORRIBLE TIME, BUT BECAUSE I WAS SITTING ON TOP OF A BIG, RED TOUR BUS AND LOOKING AT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SUNSET BEHIND THE ARC DE TRIOMPHE. I CALLED MY SISTER AS TEARS ARE STREAMING DOWN MY FACE TO TELL HER WHAT I WAS WITNESSING. IT WAS LIKE EVERYTHING LEADING UP TO THIS POINT IN MY LIFE JUST STRUCK ME, SO HARD. I WAS IN PARIS, A PLACE I'VE ONLY DREAMT OF VISITING! I WORKED SO HARD TO GET HERE, PAID FOR THIS TRIP ON MY OWN, AND IT WAS LIKE ALL MY HARD WORK WAS REWARDED JUST IN THIS MOMENT, STARING AT THE MOST PICTURESQUE VIEW. A POINT IN MY LIFE I WILL NEVER FORGET. THAT MOMENT ALONE..SO WORTH IT. TEARS TURNED INTO LAUGHTER REAL QUICK AS MY SISTER **TRIED TO BE ALL INSPIRATIONAL (HEHEHE SORRY MOLLS), BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT IN MY LIFE THAT I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH.

IF YOU HAPPEN TO GO TO PARIS, THERE IS ONE THING I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. YOU MUST SEE ALL THE PARIS SIGHTS AT NIGHT TIME, AND DURING THE DAY. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO SNAG THE BIG BUS TOUR RIGHT AT THE SUNSET RIDE AND THEN ALSO USE MY TICKET THE NEXT DAY AS WELL (ONLY $40 BUCKS). SEEING PARIS AT NIGHT IS SOMETHING I CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE. EVERYTHING IS 10x MORE BEAUTIFUL AND THE SUNSETS ARE NO JOKE!

 

HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF MY SUNSET TOUR //

I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE STRAIGHT UP WINED AND DINED ALL TRIP LONG BY A CLOSE FAMILY FRIEND I HAVE GROWN UP WITH! ANDREA AND HER DAUGHTER KATIE HAPPENED TO BE IN PARIS WHEN SARAH AND I WERE THERE AND LET ME TELL YOU, THEY DO PARIS THE RIGHT WAY! (SHOUT OUT TO THE MCDONALD FAMILY -- GO CHECK OUT THEIR PIZZA BUSINESS PAGLIACCI PIZZA // BEST PIZZA YOU'LL EVER HAVE IN THE SEATTLE/BELLEVUE AREA!) BETWEEN THE ENDLESS CHAMPAGNE, ESCARGOT (SO GOOD BTW) , AND PRIVATE TOURS, SAFE TO SAY I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY, OR THEM! 

 

 

 

 

THE MUSEUMS //

 

UNREAL. I'M NOT SO MUCH OF A HISTORY GAL AND I'VE NEVER PAID MUCH ATTENTION IN SCHOOL, BUT WHEN YOU GO TO PLACES LIKE THE LOURVE AND PALACE OF VERSAILLES, ITS HARD NOT TO BE IN COMPLETE AWE AND 100% INTERESTED IN WHAT THE TOUR GUIDES HAVE TO SAY. THE TALENT THAT THE ARTISTS HAD BACK IN THE DAY IS INCOMPARABLE, AND THE ARTWORK AND SCULPTURES ARE SIMPLY AMAZING TO LOOK AT. HEARING THE STORIES BEHIND EACH WORK OF ART IS HONESTLY SO FASCINATING AND DEFINITELY SPARKED MY INTEREST IN THE HISTORY OF IT ALL. 

 

THE LOURVE //

 

 

 

 

 

THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!!! THE EXTRAVAGANT, ELEGANT, AND COMPLETELY OUTRAGEOUS DESIGNS IN EACH ROOM LITERALLY TAKE YOUR BREATHE AWAY. THE DETAIL IS SO INSANE! I ONLY HAVE TWO WORDS FOR THIS PLACE...SOOOOO EXTRA!!! LOL. BUT IM SO SERIOUS! BETWEEN THE VELVET WALLPAPER, TO THE HALL OF MIRRORS, THIS PLACE IS EVERY MODERN GIRLS DREAM! CHECK OUT THE PICTURES BELOW!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PARIS WAS LITERALLY A DREAM AND A HALF, BUT I'M SURE YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT. SO INSTEAD OF BLABBERING ON ABOUT HOW IT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, BREATHTAKING, AND UNFORGETTABLE CITY I HAVE EVER BEEN TO...I'LL LEAVE YOU WITH THESE PICTURES...HEHE.
