I wouldn’t say Paris is one of my favourite cities, but I definitely think its one of the prettiest cities I’ve been to. You may have read my post, 5 things to do when in Paris – which showcases the different things I have done on my trips to Paris. One my 4th trip to Paris, I had a couple of Parisian firsts. Here are a few of my Parisian firsts from my recent trip to Paris.
CARO– USEL SPOTTING
Paris is known for its many carousels that can be found around the city. They tend to be a great attraction during Christmas and blossom seasons. While in Paris, I managed to spot three of Paris’ pretty carousels. I didn’t have a ride on them, however on my next trip I think I will definitely have to. There is something a little bit magical about carousels. I think its because it reminds me of all the fairy-tales from childhood – haha.
STAY AWAY FROM THE CITY CENTRE
One of most favourite Parisian firsts was staying out of the city centre. As much as I love the hustle and bustle that the city centre offers, it was also nice to experience a tamer and more relaxed side to Paris. I loved strolling along the river until I eventually found myself in the city centre. The only downside, is that 10pm the only thing open was a kebab shop and a McDonald’s 15 minutes walk away. However, I did mean that I didn’t spend unnecessary money.
EATING FROGS LEGS
So this is a Parisian first that has been quite high on my list for years! I remember people saying that it tastes like chicken, and I kind of agree. The texture is definitely very different to chicken though. At first, I enjoyed it – but when I saw the frog’s feet, it kind of freaked me out and I couldn’t eat anymore – haha!
