Meagan's Paris Adventure!

Hey Yall! My name is Meagan and I blog over at Beautiful Things. I started blogging to share about the summer that I went to Kenya (read more here) but now I mostly blog about my every day adventures and all of the beautiful things (see what I did there?) in between! I also host a link-up every Thursday where I share my (mostly silly, sometimes serious) thoughts--you should join!
ANYHOW, I was thrilled when Sarah asked me to guest post while on her trip (so jealous BTW). Last June, after the best day ever (the day I got married) my husband and I spent our honeymoon in Paris! So I thought I'd share some tips if you're thinking about going to Paris anytime soon (you should totally start thinking about making it happen). Enjoy & don't forget to stop by and say hello!!
one. If you are choosing to work with a travel agent and they give you a list of hotels to choose from check them out for yourself! This might seem tedious but our travel agent suggested hotels that were not in the location we were interested in--we actually took up a suggestion from a family friend on a hotel and asked our travel agent to book it! Such a dream location--email me for details. It was walking distance from beautiful gardens, the Louvre, and tons & tons of shops and cafes.

two. Totally recommend the Paris Pass it covers transportation, a bus tour, entry into basically ALL of the museums and lots more. It was a definite bargain--of course we didn't have time to do everything but we would need a six month vacation to make that happen.

three. Travel light. If you are staying for a week or less there is no need to check luggage unless it's winter and you need those bulky warm clothes. This will free you from worrying about lost baggage and it makes the airport experience that much smoother.

four. Be willing to try new things. The food is SO delicious...baguettes, croissants, cheese, lasagnas, espressos. Don't just be safe and hang with McDonalds the whole trip.

five. Research day trips! Friends had recommended we take a day trip to see Mont Saint Michel so our travel agent booked us a deal and it was gorgeous. Just enough time to enjoy every little bit of this part of France.

P.S. Travel agents can be helpful--but it really is more fun if you do the research yourself!

Anymore tips to add to this list?!
