Aside from the “solo” part of my European adventure was Paris, France when I spent a little over a week with family I had less than an hour away from the city in Sarcelles. Paris is truly beautiful if you take the time to appreciate what it has to offer. I still did not see everything, even though I spent a week in the city.
Would I go back? In a heartbeat.
For some of the best views of the city of love, you must go to the top of tour Montparnasse. This skyscraper overlooks hundreds of beautiful communities in the surrounding area and of course le Tour Eiffel.

Seeing the Notre-Dame was such an unreal experience for me. It may have (100%) been because of the Disney classic The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. My reaction to seeing this cathedral completely blind-sided to me. In short, I cried. I have a thing for European architecture I guess.

Montmartre was absolutely stunning. It may as well have been my favorite part of my trip to Paris. It had such a small town village vibe and the little shops were absolutely adorable. There are plenty of cafes to just sit and people watch as you enjoy the perfect weather, unless its raining which happens quite often in May.
Regardless, you’ll never know what you’ll find in the beautiful village of Montmartre.

Musée de Louvre
I did not have a chance to go inside the Louvre, so that is definitely a must next time I’m in Paris. The surrounding area was so beautiful, and there are gelato and crêpe stands everywhere!
Avenue des Champs-Elysées
The famous Champs-Elysées! If I had to pick anywhere to have some insane shopping spree, the Champs-Elysées would be where I’d do it. Shops galore from high fashion designers to Zara and H&M.
I didn’t grab photos of the actual rue (kicking myself, I know), but there was some construction anyway so you aren’t missing much.

No trip to Paris is complete without a trip to the Moulin Rouge. If you’re looking to feel sexy in Paris, the Moulin Rouge is the best place to do it.
