PARIS



I moved to London two years ago with several goals in mind – one was to familiarize myself with the entirety of Europe. While I had been to many European countries already, there’s no place I would say no to discover.
I’m pretty sure I was bitten by the travel bug as a child, because I get itchy feet and feel the need to travel every 3 months, even if only for a weekend getaway.
There is no greater pleasure than discovering new cities, cultures, history, people, food and sounds.
Not all of you know that I was born and raised in Paris, and I wouldn’t have wished to spend my childhood anywhere else. 
We all know the age-old cliché that Paris is the city of love, and some of us may have even visited the French capital in the hopes of finding Mr. Right to sweep us off our feet and live happily ever after!
While I can’t personally vouch for finding Mr. Right in Paris, I do believe in this city’s magnetic magic that always leaves you wanting for more.
Whenever I visit Paris, I automatically feel at home. I know how to navigate my way around my favorite arrondissements; where to find my morning coffee, a quiet jardin, dazzling architecture and incredible French food.
My typical day in Paris would start with a croissant or a pain au chocolat, of course, before hitting one of the best brekkie spots: Holybelly is located right next to Canal Saint Martin, where you can enjoy the most peaceful walk afterwards. For my Vegan friends I would definitely recommend OB-LA-DI, where you can feast on smashed avo on toast or matcha granola.
Not far from Canal Saint Martin is Montmartre – my favorite Parisian neighborhood. Take in a panoramic view of beautiful Paris and wonder at its unique architecture. To me Paris is an open museum…
One more reason I’m happiest in Paris is because here you’ll find one of my favorite destinations ever… Disneyland makes my heart sing with childlike joy, and a trip to Paris is never complete without the magic of Disney. This is no doubt due to the amazing influence of childhood memories, as I spent every Sunday at Disneyland with my family. Sunday Funday indeed!
If you are a first-timer in Paris then you must visit the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, Les Jardins des Tuilleries, Musée D’Orsay, Palais Royal, and Champs Elysees. For fantastic French wine and cuisine, head to Quartier Latin.
It’s no wonder you always find me in Paris! All it takes is a quick journey on the Eurostar - parfait!

See you soon Paris… very soon
