3 Days in Paris (with a toddler) — A Diva Travel Diary

3 Days in Paris (with a toddler!)

Happy Galentines & Valentines! I thought, in honor of such a romantic season, I’d finally share my travel diary from Paris, the city of love! I ended up with such a backlog of guest stories over the Christmas season that getting those up were priority over this. I almost didn’t bother with even sharing this since we went just before Christmas, but I know a lot of you guys enjoy my travel stuff and I really enjoy sharing it, too. And, is Paris ever a bad idea?

We had a wonderful holiday in Paris. We did about a week in Paris overall, with 3 days in Paris (including a trip to the Palace of Versailles) and then the rest at Disneyland Paris (and traveling) because we have a major Mickey Mouse fan on our hands. This post is just about the first half in the city, which really was romantic.

The Seine, near Notre Dame. Great time for a photo!
O and the Eiffel Tower — he’s showing off a leaf he found.
This is Les Invalides, which we ended up spending quite a lot of time standing outside of thanks where we had to switch our hop/on hop/off bus.
O did pretty good on the hop on/hop off bus! We were on it all day, Day 1, and it enabled us to quickly see what we wanted and take in a lot of sights!
Ah, Notre Dame! The lighting was PERFECT when we were there and the clouds looked 3D.

arc de triomphe
This is pretty obviously the Arc de Triomphe! We were on our way to shop the Champs-Élysées because we had no clothes! Our luggage was lost en route to Paris.

O at the gates of the Palace of Versailles! Just a little world traveler!
versailles gardens
Versailles’ gardens were everything.

This is the grounds of Versailles. We got O a coloring and sticker book at the gift shop. We could have walked around for hours. Days, really.

In 10th grade French class, I wrote that Versailles was one place I wanted to visit most. In the world. Dreams come true!
