Paris is, without a doubt, one of my favourite cities for Christmas decorations and Christmas lights. The ‘City of Light’ is a festive treat every single year with incredible decorations in many of the main areas of the city, as well as some of the biggest department stores like Galeries Lafayette. Christmas in Paris is definitely something to experience!There are also some smaller, less well-known spots dotted around the city that are worth a visit if you have the time. I’m not the most festive when it’s early December (I’m at least a mid-December person) but I was definitely feeling the Christmas spirit exploring these spots in Paris!
Once Christmas is upon us most markets have closed already or are winding down to end before the new year. But - if you haven't had your fill yet (or don't have the opportunity to visit them until the new year) - some Christmas markets continue into January for your New Years visiting pleasure!If you're looking to adventure to some Christmas markets in January, then I have rounded up all of the festive fun still on offer into 2020.In this complete guide to Christmas markets open after Christmas (which seems like a strange idea but should definitely be more of a thing), you can find all your markets for enjoying festive cheer after the big day.
2017 has been a pretty crazy year in terms of travel and blogging. This year, my blog started to pick up, my Instagram hit 100k followers (woohoo!) and I went on my first press trip. Although not quite as catchy as my 2016 (21 countries in my 21st year), 2017 was definitely more epic and probably also more stressful!Here goes a round up of a crazy year...
Winter is coming. It’s true, whether you like the cold weather or not! Winter is a great time of year for travel since you have so many options, including heading to warmer climates (a favourite of mine), exploring Christmas markets, doing winter sports or experiencing the sheer beauty of winter.Some of my favourite travel bloggers have put forward their top choices for winter destinations this year… where will you choose to go?
My first trip to Paris resulted in me really hating the city, so when my best friend asked if I wanted to join her for a long weekend in La Ville Lumière... I wasn't totally sure. However, she's awesome (for real) and flights weren't too expensive so I decided I would go.And you know what?I don't regret it ONE bit! I think it ended up being one of my best trips that year and we had an amazing time, plus we pretty did our own Instagram-inspired tour of the city. So, what are the most beautiful places to visit in Paris? Here are my top picks for the most awesome photo opportunities in the city!
