Honeymoon: Paris | La Ville-Lumière

Oh, Paris! Paris is a city that just oozes with romance and wonderment. You can enjoy Paris via train, via cab, and/or via walking. Each one offers a different perspective of the city. Our top choice was to stroll hand-in-hand, as we were able to leisurely go from point A to point B and detour to point C through various streets easily.

We hit up the usual attractions -- the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame Cathedral, love lock bridge (we didn't participate but were amazed by the amount of locks, despite the recent concerns), the Louvre, etc.

On our last night in Paris, we went on the Seine River sunset cruise. It was a very relaxing and memorable way to end our trip. It felt bittersweet, because we loved our European honeymoon, but we were also getting pretty homesick too (especially being without Louie...! But it turns out she was totally fine without us, and loved being pampered by grandma and grandpa). We will always look back on this trip & although our memories may fade as we grow older, our photographs will be our forever souvenirs. This post concludes our honeymoon series; thank you for reading :) xx
