For the Love of Paris

I want to cover a few subjects on this blog, and one is travel, so today I thought I'd do a travel themed post about my favourite place in the world, and the reason I've named this blog Nic Ooh La La: Paris. 

There are many, many reasons why I love Paris, that might be for a different post, so I thought I'd show you all a couple of places I like to visit when I'm there.

Whenever I go to the city of light I always stay in Montmatre, and in Montmatre there is the Sacre Couer, which boasts the best view of Paris, it's simply wonderful to look over the city avec pizza and red wine of an evening. It's so great that even the Parisians do it.

Whilst exploring the city, I can't help but go back to the monuments time and time again; the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Notre Dame, and, of course the Eiffel Tower. These iconic buildings are quintessentially French. The first time Lee and I went to Paris, we actually went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, right to the top,  which was worth the extra €7. 

And finally, for now anyway, you can't talk about the city without mentioning the food. Obviously the best places to eat in Paris are red top Cafe's, and they aren't always as expensive as people would have you believe.

Here's me and Lee in Paris!

It's a place I'm planning on going time and time again, so there'll be many more posts on this subject.
