Paris Day 1 // DeejandBlamers

I had had 4 months straight of training and working and needed some time off! Literally the day I graduated from training I left two hours early to catch the direct flight to Paris!!! YES! It was amazing! Plus we got business class on the direct flight from SLC to CDG!SONY DSCWe first landed and had this AWESOME book from my mom and bought unlimited bus/train/and subway passes for both of us right in the airport! There’s an info desk where someone spoke english and helped us decide what bus passes we needed and where our hotel was. The passes were like 33 euro a piece and well worth it considering how much we really used them! The book shows all the trains and lines that you need for public transportation and also the districts of paris. If you don’t know what district something is in you are basically worthless. So it was super helpful to have! HIGHLY recommended!

We got to our hotel and they weren’t way helpful and didn’t let us check in early or leave our bags! I learned so much on this trip but it was still crummy to just have to wait around in a lobby for an hour.  We couldn’t wait to get out and start exploring!

When we got to our hotel, we had to wait about an hour to actually check in, so we spent the time mapping out where everything was that we wanted to do with our map and the map they gave us at the hotel. I hate being redundant, so having a very specific plan on where to go and in what order was very useful!

Notre Dame, like just about everything in Paris, is amazing, and HUGE. Seriously… the architecture was probably my favorite part of Paris. I have NO idea how people built these intricate buildings so long ago. There’s angels and saints carved everywhere and it’s just amazing!

Then we just wandered around for the rest of our day! We were still pretty tired despite the lay down seats, so we only stayed out until like 6pm!

All the trains and buses have this usual bus schedule on it, and we could figure out which we needed for each attraction, but we hardly heard a lick of english the whole time, and no one wanted to help us, so we had to pay attention really well to these maps!
See our next day, here!
