To be honest, I was a bit surprised that Paris was our first destination, because we had traveled to Paris a few times in the past and Bridgette did not love it. When we arrived and Bridgette led us to check in at a hotel just outside the terminals, I knew immediately that Paris must be just a layover for us. We arrived in the early afternoon and decided to venture out to help our jetlag. We didn’t want to spend a lot of money Ubering into the city, nor did we want to take an hour long train ride, so we decided we’d just walk and explore the nearby areas.
Much to our delight, we came across some pretty idyllic places that felt like a fairytale! I’m talking about a wishing well, castle, and a lush, green forest! We spent quite awhile just taking pictures and admiring how beautiful everything was before continuing our way to find a nice cafe for our late lunch.
By late afternoon, our jetlag got the best of us and we headed back to the hotel for what we thought would be just a quick nap. By the time we awoken, it was already midnight and we were famished! Thank God for UberEats! We ordered a pizza to share and had so much fun eating in bed and chatting. Some of our fondest travel memories are these simple moments for sure…
The next morning, we checked out of our hotel, walked back into the terminal and checked in for the flight that would take us to our first “official” destination of this surprise trip…which will be revealed in the next post!
