paris is such an amazing city. there is so much to see and to do, and yet much of the beauty can be missed if you don't allow yourself enough time to just relax, have no plans, and soak it all in. honestly, some of our favorite spots in paris were the random streets, cafes, and gelato spots.
because we had both been to paris before we didn't feel obligated to do every single tourist activity, and instead felt free to just go back to our favorite sites. we didn't go in notre dame, up the eiffel tower, or spend all day at the louvre. instead, we spent an afternoon at musee d'orsay, found new neighborhoods to stop for lunch and ended each night on the lawn in front of the eiffel tower drinking wine.
paris really is such a romantic and inspired city. full of beauty at every turn.
