Rim Hugger: Paris

We recently took a trip across the pond to visit our great friends in Ireland. During that trip, we took a little whirlwind hop to Paris and crammed about five days of sightseeing into less than two. We did some awesome stuff while we were there including walking up the stairs of the Eiffel Tower, finding a perfect C & M lock on the Pont des Arts, and singing “Aux Champs-Élysées” with random French people at a cafe in Montmartre. We even napped on the lawn of the Louvre! It was a great trip, but you know that we couldn’t visit a new city without grabbing another places for the Rim Hugger list!

We woke up early on our second day there and enjoyed a great breakfast from our AirBNB host. From there we hopped on the Metro towards l’Arc de Triomphe.

2014-06-17 12.22.28I had done some research and came up with a route that would take us by as many iconic Parisian sights as possible. From the Arc, we headed down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and past all of the mega stores like Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Disney, and Lacoste. From there we continued past the Obelisk and through the lawn outside the Louvre.
