Paris, here I come!
How to travel in style when in the early morning
hours. My flight get up are always jeans and
layers. Its colder on the airplane, so throw a
cashmere blanket in your carry on, just in case.
Lifesavers: Sunglasses (to hide those puffy eyes)
cream, cleanser, lipgloss, mascara
(with the restrictions for travellers, buy a minikit
or make your own with bottles from H&M), water,
cashmere blanket, gum, travel sickness and
headachetablets, ipod and magazines.
Travelling is all about waiting, so make sure
to bring something to entertain you. If you
bring something you love, like jewelry, put it
in your carry on. Never let it out of your sight.
As I have experienced the loss of suitcases
before, I never travel without a carry on and a
set of change.
Magazine heaven and a way to kill time.

First out: Lunch and the Eiffel Tower. Be sure to make the first day a light day, dont burn all your candles right away.
Tour Eiffel, Champ -de-Mars. 7th Arrondissement.
The Bar on the First floor. Cappuchino heaven.
Standing in the middle of first floor looking down.
The view from the first floor towards Ecole Militaire.
View from the second floor. The building with the gold on
top is the Invalides, Napoleons grave.
View from the third floor. Not for people who are afraid of
heights, like me.
Parc Du Champ -de-Mars. Such beautiful
scenery. Take time to apprciate the beauty
of buildings and architechture.

An excellent restaurant on Avenue de Suffren, very close
to our hotel. Highly recommended, great french cusine.
Remember that the French eat between 12 and 14, but you
can always find something thats open.
A Fiat! This was so funny, we had to document it.
In case you were wondering how small it really is..
Eiffel by Night. Highly recommended for
a romantic evening stroll.
-Make sure you find out were your Metro stations are, you will be using it a lot. Buy a metro card for the days you will need it.
-Familiarize yourself with the city, what is in walking distance and what do you want to see.
-Good restaurants are always filled with the natives, so be sure to look for just that.
-Make a plan, prioritize what you want to do. If you are several travelling together, split up or compromise.
-We went to the Eiffel Tower in the early afternoon and it was very few people in line, compared to what we expected.
-Pack light. Bring seperates that goes well together and nice dresses. Remember, you willl most likely shop and bring things home with you.
Of course we went out to a wonderful restaurant in the evening. However, all were so tired that no pictures were taken, but we did have a wonderful meal at a small french restaurant called Le Sept-Quinze, at a street close to our hotel.
Tomorrow: Shopping at Champs-Elysees.
