My Paris Bucketlist

I did a London Bucketlist a few weeks back so I decided to do one for Paris as well! I’ve been wanting to go for years and years and years, and finally, back in April my family and I spent a few days there. It was just a couple of days into Spring and it was really cold, with some days hitting roughly 2 degrees Celsius! We weren’t prepared “clothes-wise” but we made do with the clothes we had, layered and layered up, and had an amazing few days in one of the beautiful cities in the world!

Read on to see all the things I got to check off my Paris bucketlist! You can also check out my other Paris blogs here and here.

1. Visit the Notre Dame Cathedral
A very beautiful Church, inside and out! With it’s Gothic-style people flock this place, with lines almost reaching the road, but don’t worry, the line moves fairly quickly and you’ll be inside before you know it.

2. Take a photo with the Louvre Pyramid
The famous pyramid of the famous museum! There is usually a massive line going inside, but this was taken in the late afternoon (less people!).

3. Visit the LouvreΒ Museum
Just beautiful, isn’t it? It was so huge we didn’t even get to visit the whole museum. Had to rest our feet every now and then too! So many things to see.

4. See the Mona Lisa in person and try to get aΒ nice picture with it
It was pretty damn crowded as you can see! It was amazing to finally see it in person though. A LOT of people, but it’s not this crowded throughout the museum. Just in this particular room hehe, so don’t be discourage to visit!

8. Visit any bridge in Paris with love locks
I’ve always wanted to see this! Glad we found some since they took the locks from the Pont des Arts bridge down already.

  22. these are just so awesome but it got me kicking myself up again… why, because when i was there at the notre dame, eiffel tower and also the louvre, i did not enter the places… i was more fascinated at taking photos outside…. and so that is the reason… how dumb am i… huhuhu… same goes for my visit to versailles as well… huhuh, but then again I only spent a couple of days there and one full day at Disneyland…
