Traveling to Paris with Your Partner?
The comedian and I are about to embark on our first trip across the pond together. I asked one of my favorite contributors to share her story with her significant other. ______________________________________________________________________
My partner changed my world when I started dating him. We traveled so much together and he has definitely got me out of my bubble. Our trips are epic and Paris was one of the most memorable.
Here is what you need to know when traveling to the most romantic city on earth with your partner!
BE PREPARED TO WALK.
Yes, you can take the cab or the train but be prepared to walk and walk some more. We made the mistake of walking to a rugby game while we were in Ireland the night before we went to Paris.
My feet were in so much pain from the night before and our first day in Paris was miserable. There's a trek to everything you want to see. I guess we should have taken a day off to recover from walking.
BE PREPARED FOR SMALL PORTIONS HIGH PRICE
We had the most amazing curry from a hole in the wall away from the main streets of Paris. It was the smallest portion I've ever received so be aware you will be hungry and ready for more unless you're willing to pay the price for seconds.
When you leave your hotel, make sure to have some snacks in your pocket. Especially if your partner is known to get hangry!
MAKE A REALISTIC PLAN
We spent two days in Paris. This was simply not enough time. We did get to see the Eiffel Tower and we ventured over to see the Mona Lisa but I wanted more.
My partner and I missed the Love Bridge, many of the museums, and cathedrals. I know you can't see everything in a week but two days is not enough.
EVERYONE TOLD US THAT IT’S OVERRATED.
I loved Paris! I have amazing pics that will last a lifetime. Even though I was crippled and angry the first night, it was one of my favorite trips with my man. I cherish all my memories of traveling with Gareth. He is my adventure and I would recommend Paris to every couple.
ROMANCE IS IN THE LITTLE THINGS
We were also told Paris isn't as romantic as you think. Romance is self-created. I really do believe that ambiance matters. If you don't allow the sexiness of the Eiffel Tower help make your night special with your partner then I have no hope for you.
We had the best ice cream by the carousel across from the Eiffel Tower. To me, that is romance at its finest.
I'm sure if we made time to see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night, there would be some sexy time.
Just so you're aware, don't get caught up in the romance at the hotel because the lights turn off at 2 AM.
I know I have to go back to Paris just to see the lights! (This is my excuse to venture back)
