If you haven’t already been reading my Europe travel posts, well you’re gonna want to start now. They are about to get real good! It’s officially time to start talking about Paris! After our day in Oxford we headed back to my cousins and had a lovely chill evening at their place. If you have been watching the vlogs, then you saw this. I was honestly so sad to leave them early the next morning. Being that my cousins live across the pond it’s rare that I see them. The days I spent with them in England was the longest time with them since I was probably in early teens or even before. So even as excited as I was to head to Paris, I was sad to say goodbye knowing I didn’t have a set time in which I would see them in the future. It’s amazing the bond that family can bring.

When I first started planning the hop from England to Paris I honestly thought it would be like a quick train trip via the chunnel and we’d be in Paris early morning. Once I started looking at train tickets I realized how wrong I was. From Bath we had to take a commuter train into London. Then we would need to go through customs and finally board the Eurostar for the like 3 hour train ride to Paris. There was nothing quick about this journey. We were up really early that morning…I’m talking like earlier than 5…it was not pleasant.

However, obviously it was all worth it because once we made it into Paris I just about died. It is literally just stunning. From the moment we got out of the train station I was just awe struck. Everything really does look exactly like the pictures, and the architecture is just stunning! We took an Uber from the train station to our little Airbnb which was about 10 minutes from the Eiffel Tower (I’ll be doing a full review on that later so keep an eye out.). From the Uber was the first time that we saw the tower, and yes I did tear up. It’s just breath taking. Tori and I felt like the entire trip we just kept saying things like “Wow!”, “It’s all so pretty.”, “Woah, stunning!”. Literally everything really just stopped and took my breath away.

Once we got settled into our little place we freshened up and headed out on the town. We hadn’t really eaten since the morning so we stopped in at Café du Marche. It’s super close to the Eiffel Tower and had delicious pasta! The waiters there were kind and helpful, and spoke English. It was such a perfect little place for our first real meal in Paris. From there we were head to the Sacré-Cœur. It’s a Roman Catholic church that sits up on a hill that is the highest point of the city. It’s around 300 steps up to the top, but man is the view worth it! We had to hurry and walked a crazy amount to get there before the sunset, but we totally made it. Exhausted, but we made it!

The pictures really just don’t do it justice. It’s an amazing view of the whole city, and seeing the sun dip down as it sets was just an incredible start to the trip. My heart just aches to go back already! After that we headed back to our quaint apartment for a little bit before going back out to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle. Another moment of this trip that I will just never forget. I actually let out a small scream when she first started sparkling. The joy it brought me was just overwhelming, and it’s hard to put it into words just how amazing the tower really is.

The below vlog from this day of travel and half a day in Paris is probably one of my favorites! Let me know what you think!
