I went to PARIS!! ♥♥

Hello/Bonjour!

The last time I went abroad on holiday was with my friend back in 2012 which now feels like a lifetime ago so this year, I was determined to have at least one holiday. One place I've always dreamed about visiting was Paris and I finally got the chance to go last week!

Since it was a city break holiday and I knew I'd only be there for a short amount of time, booking a perfect flight was so important as I wanted to have as much time as possible for sightseeing. After looking around online and visiting a few travel agents in store, I ended up booking on lastminute.com where I got a great deal with flights in the mornings so I pretty much had two full days in Paris.

Our hotel I booked with was called the Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel and was literally right next to the Eiffel Tower! 0.19km away to be exact! The hotel itself was very modern and the staff were very friendly and polite. They had a bar with free internet access and free wifi in the hotel rooms. Perfect! Although I didn't ask for an Eiffel Tower view, I could see the top of it which for me, was a bonus!

The weather wasn't amazing on the first day but the second day was a lot better and I was even able to wear my new dress (with a coat though!). Clothes wise, I would also recommend packing some walking shoes as my feet were absolutely aching by the end of the first day. I ended up having to pop into a H&M store and buy some sneakers for €9 (£7.99)!

I loved every minute of this holiday and I would definitely go back there again, especially because there are so many other places I'd love to visit like the Moulin Rouge and the Catacombs. I would also really recommend the hotel, especially if you going as a sightseeing holiday purely because of it's location.

Bring on the next holiday!
