Bonjour!!!Sharing my final pics from my mini France travel series with one of my absolute favorite cities – Paris! It’s one of those places that I love to visit over and over again. There are so many things that come to mind when I think of Paris…. picnics by the Effiel Tower, casual strolls through the immaculate gardens, sightseeing at all the top attractions…The list can go on and on but I’ll truly never forget my first time seeing the iconic Effiel Tower. I remembered turning a corner and suddenly having a “pinch me” kind of moment when I first laid eyes on the majestic structure. It’s grandiose and timeless, I couldn’t stop marveling at it! The historical monument is one of the most famous landmarks in the world and a symbol of Paris. If you have the time, you can also climb the tower to get a beautiful view of the city… I posted a pic down below. It’s an amazing experience that you have to do at least once in your life! The City of Lights is awe-inspiring, romantic, and simply magical. I am honestly sooo entranced by the lovely atmosphere of Paris so I can’t wait to come back soon! ~b 🙂
I’ve been lucky enough to visit the beautiful country of France twice in my life. Once was on a school trip with a handful of honor students from my university. I had the opportunity stay in a French villa in the charming village of Valence Sur Baise. We stayed in a stylish historic maison with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The home came equipped with a grand library, chef kitchen, entertainment center, courtyard pool, etc. It was elegantly decorated as well, with a ton of collectibles and antiques. I literally felt like I was living in a museum so I was pretty much petrified of touching/breaking everything (ha!). My bedroom had a magnificent view of the rolling countryside fields which made mornings that much better. The room was also filled with classic furnishings and had an on-suite bathroom. All these posh amenities and fancy features made my stay feel like a luxury retreat!
While in the South of France, I had the chance to visit the nearby villages, art museums, and also the city of Toulouse! My favorite memory from my trip, however, was attending the village community feast. It’s a traditional gathering that takes place once a week in the summer. Tents are set up with live bands and scrumptious meals. The carefree atmosphere is fun and upbeat. I loved watching the locals get tipsy and dancing the night away! It was an incredible experience to have everyone come together to simply celebrate life. Overall, my sunny escape to the South of France was an idyllic vacation. The memories and adventure that I made that summer are ones I’ll always appreciate and remember. 🙂 ~b
Hi guys! I’m excited to share my travel plans for the next two months! I feel extremely privileged to be able to travel as much I have in my early 20’s. I know there are so many people that rarely ever have the opportunity to go on a vacation. So with that being said, I feel immensely blessed.
Sooo where exactly am I going? Well, spring is great time to travel because it’s not the height of tourism season, making flight tickets more affordable. In March, I will be flying out to Salt Lake City, Utah and in April, I will be adventuring to Maui, Hawaii!! Fun fact: my flight ticket to Maui was $425 round-trip + Salt Lake City was $263 round-trip. This is an amazing deal considering I live on the East Coast. Both getaways are going to be about a week long so I have been planning and watching travel guides like crazy! I am most excited for Booneville Salt Flats + Haleakala Sunrise.
Other possible travel plans in the future include Texas in the summer, Alaska in the fall, and maybe an international trip! Key word:maybe...I’m kind of pushing it, but a girl can dream! I absolutely love traveling so I can’t wait! 🙂 ~b
