11 Things To Do In Paris In Six Days

Thanks to the wonderfully-unpredictable nature of my friends, I was presented with the opportunity to travel to Paris just six months after booking the flight. I never thought that I'd get there while simultaneously #ballinonabudget, BUT I DID. Here's how you can make your trip equally if not more amazing.

1. Buy as much bread, wine and cheese as possible from your local minimart or shall I say "épicerie". (heart eyes emoji)

There will be times where seeing the sites trumps your desire to grab dinner and having some bread, wine and cheese in the house comes in super clutch.

2. Depending on how far you're staying from the Eiffel Tower, take a stroll/trip there at night.

If you can catch a warm day during the winter or a less crowded day during the summer, a picnic is definitely ideal. However, if you're short on time or a lover of lights like me, seeing the sparkles and golden hues at night does something to you.

3. Stand under The Arc de Triomphe de l'√Čtoile and let the magnitude of this monument and trip sink in.

6. Take the train to London because it's too short of a trip not to do it.

The graffiti alone is worth seeing, let's not even talk about The Bridge or the Fish & Chips.

7. Try Hippopotamus if you've ever had a special place in your heart for Chili's or TGIFriday's because it's probably better.
