    The best thing to do in Paris

    February 7, 2017

    My travel partner and I have started a youtube channel documenting our adventures, if you prefer to watch our adventures instead of reading about it, please take a look and subscribe!

    Travelling for me is about experiencing the culture, food, and people. For me, I don’t particularly care about the museums or going to the top of the Eiffel tower. I mean… If there were no line ups and the cost per ticket didn’t limit my overall budget then maybe. But hey I can’t do everything right? Different strides for different folks!

    Ever since I was a child, media has been romanticizing Paris like no tomorrow. But that comes with a cost, pun intended. Please read my previous post on how to do Paris on a budget. I would like to expand on that for this post.

    Here’s the thing. You don’t need to spend a fortune to still experience the magic of Paris. Whenever I tell my friends and coworkers about my adventure in the city of love, I can see the heart eyes emoji, so there… magic not lost!

    I’ve talked about this briefly, but now I will go in detail. One of my bucket list items was to picnic by the Eiffel tower, taking in the people, wine and of course the scenery. Now get ready to spend at least 3 hours there dazing in the sun and getting day drunk. How magical is that?! Add this to the itinerary and head to Champ de Mars!

    Here’s what you need:

    1. Picnic blanket – If you don’t have one, a throw, or a jacket will suffice.

    2. Food and Wine – Pick up some local baguettes, and pastries from the local boulangerie. Grab some cured meats, cheese and wine from the grocery store and voila! You got yourself a full day of activity, lunch, and alcohol! Here’s a tip… try to gather these items outside of the Champ de Mars area as it can be a bit more expensive. You can find your picnic essentials on any side street!

    3. Music – your choice

    4. More wine – If you run out of alcohol, don’t worry, there will be people URGING you to buy “champagne” and wine on a 5-minute turnover. Basically like bottle service for 5 euros. They even come to your picnic, how amazing. Always remember to bargain! We were able to get 3 bottles so called champagne… yes 3 bottles for two people… for less than 20 euros.
