Five days in Paris, France

I am so excited! I can't even explain to you how excited I am for 11 January. I'm sure this is how Sue Heck feels about everything she tries in her life!! For real!!

On 11 January we leave sunny South Africa to embark on an adventure! First stop - Dubai, for a couple of hours, and then PARIS! I'm sure you know by now that this is at the top of my holiday bucketlist!!

We'll be in Paris for 5 days and I want to see and do AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!
Since it'll be winter when we're there we won't be going to Disneyland, and since it's January we won't be able to go right to the top of the Eiffle Tower due to maintenance.

Anyway, we'll be staying in the Montmartre district and this is what we have planned so far, were not too big on museums so we only plan on going to a few:
Eiffle Tower - of course!
Seine River Cruise
Champ de Mars
Rodin Museum Gardens
Hotel des Invalides
Alexander Bridge
Place de la Concorde
Champs Elysees
Arc de Triomphe
Lourve Museum
Tuileries Gardens
National Opera House
Montparnasse Cemetery
Cluny Museum
Sacre Coeur Basilica
Notre Dame
The Catacombs
Latin Quarter
Luxembourg Gardens
St Germain des Pres
Eat macaroons at Laduree
Definitely eating a nutella crepe
A day trip to Versailles Gardens and Hall of mirrors

Did we miss anything? Do you have any tips or hidden gems that we have to visit?
Please let me know in the comments below!


  1. I've never been to Paris (although am planning to one day!) but your list sounds perfect! I would be super happy if I got to all those places - as well as a little shopping of course ;P

    1. Oh yes, I do plan to buy at least one thing from a cute little botique.
      I've discovered something new since writing this post, The Shakespear & Co bookstore is in Paris,I have to squeeze that in somewhere! :)
