5 Minute Vacation :: 12 Things to Do in Paris.

Welcome to Monday morning ma’ friends! How was your weekend?! Well, I continued my lovely packing journey, and still managed to play the “let’s hide all the boxes by shoving them in the laundry and garage” game so I could have people over Friday and Saturday night! (And hey, let me say it was well worth it!) So, anyway.. here we are at the beginning of another week, and what better time than a Monday morning to head to Paris, don’t you agree? How beautiful is the above pic.. this is where you will be staying for the first half of your stay, complete with a scrumptious breaky on the balcony overlooking the Tour de Eiffel. Perfect. 🙂
Here is your stunning Parisian apartment.. and below, the view from another balcony. Hello!
Rather than doing the ‘touristy things’,
here are a few fab “off the beaten track” things you can do on your trip to Paris:
1. First up…. shopping.. House of Chanel on Rue Cambon of course. 
(Well, maybe a few others will be doing this, but hey.. it’s simply a must in my books).
2. Followed by a wander to check out this city’s fabulous street fashion. 
Ain’t nothin’ like it.
3. Stroll through the 4th arrondissement and check out the stunning flowers at Marché aux Fleurs et aux Oiseaux
4. Visit Fontaine de Médicis, the stunning water feature in the Jardin du Luxembourg in the 6th arrondissement.
5. Upgrade yourselves to the luxurious 5 star Hotel Le Meurice, located in the 1st arrondissement between Place de la Concorde and Musée du Louvre

6. Meander through the backstreets and admire the spectacular architecture. 
Ivy + planter boxes + open windows = a wonderful sight.
7. Ok back to shopping.. we are in Paris after all.. 😉
8. Stroll through Gallerie Vivienne and discover the many other undercover shopping passages hidden in the 2nd arrondissement. 
9. Throw the map away, get lost, and take lots of artistic photographs.
(I never knew a row of lamp posts could be so beautiful!)
10. Grab a coffee and chocolate croissant in Le Marais.. 
Located in the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. 

11. Bask in the afternoon sun somewhere.. if it’s raining, all the better 🙂
12. Head to Restaurant Le Dali for dinner!
Have any of you guys ever eaten here?!?! Oh my goodness, I can imagine the food would be food is truly divine. So there it is guys.. a fabulous Paris list. Happy Monday and happy daydreaming!
