BONJOUR PARIS

October 19, 2017 Paris, France



















This was my third time visiting Paris, but it never gets old. Paris is always a good idea, right? I went to Paris to celebrate my sister's birthday ahead of time since she's never been to Paris, and it was whimsical - just like the first and second time I visited. Walking around Montmartre reminded me of my first trip to Paris when I fell in love with the city. I knew Paris was beautiful, but it really feels like a dream when you're there. I don't think I've ever had a bad experience in Paris besides the grumpy man at customs. Everyone was friendly and helpful every time I visited Paris. 

The first couple of days in Paris I retraced my steps in Montmartre and showed my sister my favorite spots and discovered new places together. I would have to say second arrondissement will have to be my new spot in Paris, a foodie's paradise if you love Japanese and Korean food. Some food and coffee spots I would definitely recommend while in Paris are Rice & Fish, Sanukiya, Holybelly, Peonies, Cafe Tabac, and Sadaharu Aoki (matcha croissants...need I say more?). Some concept stores that I would also recommend are Madeline & Gustave, Sezane, and Merci

I wanted to go to at least one museum while in Paris and we were debating whether or not to go to the Louvre. I had already went to the Louvre the first time I visited and for the sake of time we decided to go to Musee d'Orsay instead, where they surprisingly had a lot of post impressionism art collection from Van Gogh and Monet. Van Gogh has always been my favorite artist growing up, and I always admired his work as cliche as it may sound. While growing up I would paint Starry Night over and over again, trying my best to replicate his masterpiece. I would have to say highlight of my trip would've been seeing Van Gogh's work and walking up the dome of the Basilique du Sacre Coeur. Such a breathtaking and stunning view of Montmartre and you can even spot the Eiffel Tower in the distance. 

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that the next time I visit France I spend time in the countryside. I would love to spend my time just admiring mother nature and to get away from the city life. Any cities in France you recommend visiting?





Love, Sharon

  1. These photos are amazing. I miss Paris and you're right, Paris is never a bad idea and there's always so much to see! I've been once before but I can't wait to go again, all of the cafes, restaurants and people. The alley with the fallen leaves is beautiful, what a great post! xx

    Sending light & love your way,

    My Lovelier Days
