WE ARE BACK from Paris!!! There’s a mix of feelings of sadness and happiness!! Sad to leave that beautiful and amazing city behind and happy to have our routine back with our kids in our home and with our blog too!! We had so much fun, we walked thru the city non-stop. We had the chance to go to places that weren’t “touristy”. Thanks to our friends Ciryl and José-Júnior (lol)!! Thank you guys very much for the amazing time your offered us!!
Every time when we talk to someone about Paris, usually the first comment or question is about how expensive it is. Yes, Paris is an expensive city! However, there’s a lot of things you can do for free there. With our own experience we can tell you one thing: even if you have all the money in the world you couldn’t see everything in a short of period of time!! There are so many things to do and see in Paris!! So you need to organize and make choices! I guarantee you with all the things you can do for free in Paris you are not going to feel left out!
We posted a lot of photos and videos on our Instagram!
Paris is an open sky museum, every street, corner, store, and market tells you a sort of history that adds more and more charm to this beautiful city.
Walking thru Paris is already an attraction!! Actually, Paris is all about walking!! Marilyn and I love just to walk thru the streets, find new places, stop by to have coffee or a glass (two, three… lol) of wine, try a new tart in different boulangeries and just see the Parisians in their own routine.be important for those who are planning to travel to Paris or for those who are just curious.
Walking along the river Seine is an amazing experience! It’s 776 km (482 mi) that cuts Paris to the north of France. In Paris there are 37 bridges. One more beautiful and unique than the next!
At the Seine river you will see this huge chalkboard where people draw on the wall! The kids love it! We left our signature there!
Another thing we saw walking beneath the bridges is this music spot. You can take your iPod or iPhone and connect your music to the overhead speakers to listen while you are sitting there. Everybody else can listen too. It’s super cool! I only had my iPhone for this photo… so the quality is not good! Sorry!
It was so nice to walk thru Paris with my friend because a lot of things we would missed without a local Parisien. For example, these cabins in front of the Seine river that you can make reservation for parties without any fee. You bring food and drink, invite your friends and have an amazing view. I think they must fit around 8 to 10 people. Amazing, don’t you think??!!
There’s always something going on there. An art installation, zumba dance class, outdoor recreation, etc. etc. When I think about the Seine what immediately comes to mind are the kiosks with old books and magazines. Stop by and browse old books on the shelves. You will find amazing things there!!
While we were there we saw this Zumba class going on!
Sit and just appreciate the beauty of the bridges, the anonymous artists, the buildings and why not have a picnic there?!
The easiest thing to do in Paris is to buy a baguette, a delicious cheese and wine!!
Immortalize your love on the bridge of Arts… It is a tradition in this romantic city! You can buy your lock pad there at the kiosks!
After all, let yourself get lost in Paris! It doesn’t cost you anything! It is a priceless experience!!
Have a GREAT week!
Beijos e Tchau!
