Let me preface this by reminding you that I am not a planner. This isn’t necessarily a good thing given that proper adulting requires some manner of planning but it gives me wicked anxiety. It is entirely possible that my anxiety could be quelled if I planned ahead more, but that’s another conversation for another post. At any rate, I approached my trip to Paris with more of a laissez-faire attitude and left the planning to my best friend. While I also received a lot of input from people who visit Paris regularly and/or who are from there, there were a few things I absolutely needed to do and some things that quite frankly I didn’t care much about. So this isn’t an official guide to Paris. It’s merely a recap of what I did and what I loved about this life-changing travel experience. There are videos of some of the places mentioned below over on my Instagram if you’re interested.
