Welcome to our do this not that: Paris episode!
Paris is a dreamy city. There are definitely iconic sights that you have to see…and some things we feel are overrated. There are people who fall head over heels for Paris…and those that don’t understand the hype.
Trust me, on my first visit to Paris, I tried to pack in so much that I never really understood why everyone was so crazy about this city. Then I revisited Paris and took my time, saw its magic, and fell in love with it. I learned some lessons that I incorporated into our most recent trip to Paris last summer, where I introduced Chris to this lovely place. Needless to say, he fell in love with Paris too.
So in this episode, we’re talking all about the dos and don’ts when visiting the city of lights: Paris! From the best museums to where to eat, this is what to do in Paris to have the best time!
