Like many eager wanderlusters, Paris has always been a dream destination of mine. Parisian icons like Eiffel Tower, the pyramid of the Louvre, and all the crêpes and macarons I could ever possibly want have been on my mind for as long as I can remember. So when the time finally came for me to cross the "City of Lights" off of my travel bucket list, I couldn't have been more excited. Though the trip was short, I figured out how to do Paris in four days so I could get the most out of my trip.
I created a Google Map for myself so I could plan out each landmark I wanted to see, and used various methods of transportation to see the city from above ground. By grouping together parts of the city, I was able to check out quite a few landmarks in a really short amount of time — and capture incredible content along the way. I even brought a Bluetooth remote-controlled tripod so I could take photos at my own pace.
Paris is a magical city, and I finally understand why everyone I know who has been there can't stop raving about it. I loved going there for the first time as a solo traveler, because I feel like it really allowed me to experience the city in the best way. Though the trip was a short four-day period, it was definitely a sweet one. Paris, je t'aime, mon amour.
