On Friday I announced that I would start my Go with Oh adventure in November. You already know that I’m definitely going to Florence, and today I’m divulging another city I’ll visit.
I’m going to Go with Oh to Paris!
I’ve wanted to visit Paris for as long as I can remember. Numbers 36, 37, and 38 on my bucket list involve Paris. I’m going to mark those three items off with zeal. I’d be a fool not to include the City of Light in my month-long itinerary. After all, it’s PARIS!
The quest for the perfect pain au chocolat alone is worth the trip. Despite having a fabulous French restaurant less than a mile from my Houston home, I’ve never eaten a French meal. Sure I’ve had French food (quiche, onion soup, crepes, steak frites), but I can’t say I’ve had a proper French meal. I am dying to dive into boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin. I’m going to eat cheese and éclairs until I pop. Don’t even get me started on the wine and Champagne I’m going to drink.
Although I’m excited about eating my way through the city, I’m even more excited about experiencing the sights and sounds of Paris. With my trusty travel partner in crime, Lola, I’m going to visit all the typical tourist sites. Lola’s been to Paris on several occasions, so I’m looking forward to seeing her favorite haunts and finding some new ones together.
The Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame, and Arc de Triomphe will certainly be on our itinerary, but I want to dive deeper into Paris. I crave the opportunity to experience the city like a local. Instead of searching for cheap hotels, I’ll be staying in one of Open House Group’s Parisian apartments, which I believe will help give me a taste of what it’s like to live as a Parisian.
Paris will be the last stop on my Go with Oh tour. I purposely did this because I want to see Paris adorned for Christmas. If it’s anything like I imagine, I imagine the Paris hotels and shops bedecked in the most fabulous decorations ever conceived. I’m not sure how one of the most beautiful cities in the world could get better, but I have a feeling the City of Light shines even brighter during the Christmas season.
There you go! Now you know two of the four cities I’ll visit during my stint as guest blogger for Go with Oh. Check back on Wednesday when I’ll announce the third city. Also, check out Lola’s and my Pinterest board, Going with Oh to Paris. It’s divine!
Do you have any suggestions for Paris? Merci beaucoup!
