I just realized how long it’s been that I posted something here. It is simply the lack of travels in the last time, my job is definitely keeping me busy. However, I will have some exciting news soon
When I visited my New York City girl (but now living in Paris) Linda, she asked me beforehand what I wanted to do. What could I say? When I visit cities, the only thing I actually want is to be a local for a few days. I’d say I am a pretty easy visitor.
In that case, I wanted to be a Parisienne for a few days. So, these are the things I had to do. Sadly, most of them are related to food, but I hope you are okay with this.
Eat a croissant for breakfast. Every damn day.
Me personal, I developed a almost obsessive addiction to almond croissants.
Go vintage shopping.
Before I got to paris I read this article by CN Traveler and tried a few of the tips. Free P’Star and the Kilo Shop are great vintage stores. However, you will see many more just by walking through the city and they are definitely worth it.
Get drunk on French wine.
Eat a Macaron. Or two.
At least one must be from Ladurée.
Even though it is a clicheé. Go and see the Eiffeltower.
Say you hate it, especially when it blinks, even though you actually get excited every time you see it.
Eat an eclair.
Even though you do not even like them that much.
Drink a noisette in a street café and read a book.
A noisette is an Espresso with a little bit of milk, and sometimes even milk foam. Like a tiny cappuccino and it is delicious!
Do something cultural.
Like a gallery opening, or visit a small and unique museum (not the Louvre, it is too crowded)
Have a romantic date.
If you have a local friend, tell her she is supposed to set you up. Otherwise try Tinder.
