Paris on a budget…ticking off bucket list

Hello my lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well.

A few weeks ago Cadrie and I went for a little weekend getaway in Paris children free, and bwoy what an experience it was.

It was a nice relaxing weekend just the two of us, haven’t done that in ages and what better place to do it but in the beautiful city of  Paris.

We arrived on an early Friday morning and depart late Sunday evening, that way we could have a full weekend, we didn’t do much on Friday but just chill,  have few drinks and planned for the Saturday.

The Saturday

Saturday morning we got up early, overly excited to go into the heart of the city, called a taxi and got dropped off at the beautiful Eiffel tower

Honestly, I could pinch myself, what a stunner it was, there was a long queue with people waiting to climb the Eiffel tower, but that wasn’t an interest to either of us, the main thing for us is that we were there and we saved a few coins by not climbing the Eiffel tower.

We walked around it for a bit and then we went and have breakfast in a beautiful cafe, everything in Paris is beautiful its like I couldn’t put my camera down, call me frighten but I don’t care lol.

After breakfast we went back and wandered around by the Eiffel Tower for a bit more, We then came to a conclusion to do the open top bus tour which would have taken us to all the main attractions for a couple bucks of course, but we cancelled and decided to walk around and do it ourselves.

It was way much more fun,  by the way, everything in Paris is expensive, so if you do go there be prepared.

We made our way around the city with google map, kept stopping to see things as they caught our eyes, the city is magnificent, architecture is beautiful, stunning balconies and the cafes were overflowing, streets were busy and everyone was in good spirit and the weather was perfect to top it off.


That is a way to save more money and it’s also more enjoyable if you are up to it, Paris is definitely a city of love, and I am already planning a trip back, I would suggest going if you can, but try and visit the attractions without doing it the tourist way save yourselves few coins.
