Paris for Christmas. Part 1

They say Paris is the most romantic city in the world, everything about Paris makes you fall in love with it. When we decided to book a holiday for Christmas, I just knew we had to go there, I must say it was an inner girly girl screaming OMG PARIS. I know that when I am older and I look back at this post, I will be able to feel the fond memories I felt about being in Paris with the most important person in the world to me.

1/2/3 -We started our trip off by visiting the local market in Le Marais where we saw the most beautiful flower displays as well as vibrant fresh fruit and vegetables. We also bought some Oysters as it is tradition to eat them on Christmas Eve in France. On our second day we visited the Louvre it took about 15 minutes to get the shot of me above which amused Dan greatly. 

4- As you can see we were brave enough to try Escargot (snails) which I have to say were pretty darn tasty I urge you to try it, I have certainly ticked it off my bucket list. 

5- Perhaps the most beautiful experience I had in Paris was the Christmas Eve mass at Notre Dame, having lost my Nan over 10 years ago Christmas has never really been the same, so it was really special to me to light a candle in the cathedral in her honour.

6- Christmas day was spent cruising down the Seine eating a five course meal. It was very fancy! We got a teeny weeny bit drunk...but that's another story!

I will be doing another photo post, one of my outfits in Paris and one using some full size photo's especially of my favorite ones! I hope you have enjoyed this post and I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas.

  1. What a beautiful way to spend Christmas, I'd love to go abroad one year in the future x

  2. Just wanted to say you look stunning on that photo I'm guessing was on Christmas day. Can't believe you tried snails. Much braver than me. Haha

  3. Living through these pictures of your trip! I'm determined to get these this year! I'm already saving up for it! Even if I don't go this year for something anyway a trip maybe at the end of the year.

  4. Hi Callie - I have just stumbled into your blog via another blog which I found via another blog! But i just thought I'd say how lovely it is reading about your trip to Paris! I visited Paris for the first time in November and am going back in two(ish) weeks with my boy which I planned for his Christmas present! Your photos are lovely and I have stole a few touristy places to visit from your write up! :)
    Lovely blog. Happy to have stumbled here! :)

  5. Hi Callie great blog. I was inspired by your blog to go to Paris over Christmas with my boyfriend . I have been trying to find somewhere cheap to eat on Christmas day. Any recommendations? x
