"Paris is always a good idea!!"

Yes, this phrase is very famous and typical but so true. It doesn't matter how many times i have been to Paris, I put my hand up without a second thought when someone brings up potential trip to french capital.

The Seine River Paris

Staying in Paris makes me feel glamorous, fancy, romantic...hold on...the romantic part can be tricky because to be fully enjoying Paris on a romantic getaway can be quite pricey, so i would advice to bring your handsome to cover or share the costs hahaha...

Paris is very expesinve place, especially most of the places and restaurants that I like to see or to visit. Last time in Paris, I was there with my BFF to celebrate a birthaday of our mutual friend. The whole 3-day weekend was amazing, and she showed me many places that I have never known before. Still, I have to find a cheap place within the borders of the City of love.

As soon as possible, I will write about staying in Paris as a couple, with kids on the family visit, and with friends. All of theses experiences are great and they are all different.

Ok. Let's concentrate on what happened last weekend.

We stayed in Melia Vendome Paris hotel,my first time staying at this place and actually even in this area. I always drifted towards taking a hotel closer to the Eiffel tower or its vicinity. The reason was generally because I usually come to Paris by car.

Vendome Square

This downtown quarter, District 8, is a very charming place. It happens to be the most important street with shops near to the Louvre mueseum and Vendome square.

We were just 5 minutes of walking from the Hotel Costes, which also has a great restaurant. Make sure that you have reservation here because if you don't, the girls by the reception might have a bad humor with a slight bitchiness in their voices (female feud I suppose). Right, just a bad experience for my first time there.

Thanks goodness we had a great waiter who saved the day, gave us a better table and even better service.

By the time we had our glasses filled with wine, the unpleasant hostess was long forgotten. Afterall, everythnig went just fine, the food and drinks and our waiter was great!!

Coming alone without kids I had time to make this little trip outside of Paris, to Riems Champagne area, wordily known for its popular...hmm..CHAMPAGNE!

I was waiting and making plans for so long to visit this place, that I have enjoyed every single minute. I did my Champagne tour with Pariscityvision, which brought me to two different little towns, Reims and Epernay. Definitely I will do it again.
