French 40 : What we got up to in Paris

I’m posting twice in one week because well I haven’t posted anything in a while, my bad. Anyway as the title says my sister turned 40 and here’s what we got up to in Paris, you know touristy things for me and shopping for everyone else. Amongst the touristy antics we got up to; we trekked up and down all 284 stairs of the Arc de Triomphe so I could get my perfect shot of Paris.

   Trust I took a break walking up these stairs

     My perfect shot of Paris from the Arc de Triomphe(I finally got it. YAY!!!)

I didn’t take many pictures of the crew shopping so instead I will gladly share more happy-clappy- touristy shots.

FRENCH 40

So my sister turned 40 this year and she choose to spend it in my favourite place in the world…..Grand PARIS. So you know I was down. My first time in Paris was a solo trip so I was super excited to going back with some of my faves you know the Fam-bam.

Paris weather was a bit stank this time around but don’t get it twisted the magic is there regardless.

So once again we waited and waited and waited for the shuttle to the hotel so here’s a quick tip just take a cab or maybe try another shuttle company because Paris Shuttle was No Bueno.

Anyway back to the regular programming celebrating 40 in Paris, we checked in to our hotel, showered and hit the Champs-Elysees for supper and touristy things like navigating our metro line. The next day was my sister’s birthday so we explored the neighbourhood, lunch at Ralph’s in Paris and then we hit up BadaBoum to go check out Muzi perform.Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

5 Days Of Summer: Part 3

Lets take it back to the beach

What is a holiday at the coast without spending time at the beach. Let me just say Bahari beach is a beautiful and eventful beach. You have everything from vendors selling fabric, paintings and wood carvings, then you have people offering camel rides. Everyone is trying to make a buck I was offered a massage and one dude tried to charge us for a tour of the beach he was like ” There are people selling paintings there, the water is over there…” people are such chancers.

      The tide is high in the morning so you see no sand for while so the morning started up here and we worked our way down the stairs to explore some more.

It started to rain on our walk back to the hotel

It started to rain as we walked back to our hotel, and it stopped when we reached the pool so we chilled some more.SAM_1977

I honestly could get used to life at the beach.
