Travel Files: American in Paris


Length of Trip: 48 Hours

Paris is one of my favorite cities! Once I grasp the language,I could definitely imagine myself living there!

My first visit, and the visit documented in these photos, was February, 2014, the day after Valentine’s Day.

That weekend, I fell in love with a city.  1601230_10203219647034779_435072635_n*The tower after rainfall. We were hot off the EuroStar and ready to explore. This is probably my favorite photo from the entire trip…and I took a ton of photos.1660986_10203210634209464_717145442_n*”Cruise” Time! It was definitely cold and not very relaxing. Yet, watching the eiffel tower light up over the water, at night, is incredible. I wish I could upload my videos. Unfortunately, wordpress is being difficult.  IMG_1448*Escargot in the Latin Quarter. Normally, I’m a fan of escargot…only because of the sauce. But, this place was terrible. I wish I remembered the name to tell you all. It’s a cheap 3-course dinner scam for tourists.

We were lured in by free wine–It happens(I guess). If you’re a foodie like me, beware of some of the marketing tactics in the Latin Quarter.
IMG_2141*I know this is so typical, but I probably took at least 100 shots of, with, and under the eiffel tower.

But hey! It’s pretty and I like it…. Louve Time! 1014086_10203219572632919_193457231_n*AKA the smiles before getting lost, hungry, and tired all up and through that museum. All because we wanted to find Mona sans a map.  1508568_10203219558912576_1425814847_n*Obviously my favorite part was that there were so many big handsome men. IMG_1485*I never got anything from there, but It just needed to be photographed. 1623563_10203219536232009_905614285_n*Another touristy thing that I did–but willingly. I had been planning to go to Laduree since I was 16 and saw it in Gossip Girl. I don’t super recommend this place because they have stateside locations.

Buut I still recommend boarding the tiny-treats train, in general.There are tons of spots to choose from.12711_10203219530791873_1778660710_n  They’re sooo prettyyy ♥ (I still have dreams about the pistachio)1800200_10203219540992128_1718374791_n* Yes, I still have the box… and the little takeout bag.

That’s all! Next week I’ll be taking you through my memories of Brugges, Brussles…

with love

        That’s so great. I’m happy you like them. I went to high school with Gloria and it’s so nice seeing one of my friends do things out of the norm. It’s inspiring I hope to do something like that one day.

  3. Hey Taylor! I love your energy and your blog! Part of my celebration for my 50th anniversary of life is a trip to Paris! I finally get to go home as I was born in Paris and have never had the opportunity to return. What are the five things to keep in mind for my adventure?

    • Hi Michelle! First I want to apologize for my slow response, I’ve been traveling! Second, I’m so excited for your trip!!
      My recommendation is simple. Bring some knowledge of the language, your appetite, a sense of adventure, and camera. Leave the guide books at home.

      Thank you for the compliment and enjoy your time in Paris!
