La ville de l’amour Paris.

As the title says, I took a trip to the city of love – also known as Paris! It was my first time ever being there so it was a very exciting one. Me and my little sister have been planning a city trip together for a long while and a few days before Christmas we finally packed our bags and went to take the Thalys train which takes you to the inner city in only a few hours.
We figured we’d need about 2 to 3 days to see the whole city and find out about the most awesome places. Ofcourse being in Paris around Christmas time is what you imagine to be; totally beautiful – the lights, the decorations, the music, the moods, it’s all there. People in The Netherlands are often a bit more down to earth when it comes to preparing for the holidays, but I’ve always loved a bit of cozyness and getting everything in style for Christmas.
What I enjoyed most was the Champs Élysées which was transformed into a huge Christmas village with wooden cottages, hot wine and churros. Omnomnom. On Christmas Eve it was even more exciting as Santa was there riding in his sleigh above the village. How cool is that?! By night time we went to see the Eiffel Tower which was actually less impressive than I thought it would be, but still a pretty sight to see. Ofcourse we couldn’t leave without a bit of shopping, so luckily I found a really cool leather bag, navajo print jumper and silver earrings. I’ve missed out on the vintage stores which Paris does seem to have, but I didn’t came across them anywhere. Pretty sure I’ll hop there again soon tho’ to see more of the city. Paris est tres jolie.
