Paris France Instagram Recap Travel

I’ve had so many ideas for language learning related posts lately that I have not shared nearly as many travel posts as I normally would. To try and make up for it, I thought I would share a quick Instagram Recap from Paris France so that you could get a quick preview of some of what I hope to share with you in the near future!

A few of the things we managed to do on the trip to Paris, France included:

Playing lots of fun language learning games with family. We love playing word games and card games, and we also enjoyed playing our new games with Flashsticks and Assimil.

 

Book shopping! Finding French language books in the US is pretty difficult and there are quite a few things I can’t even get on my Kindle. So each time we go, I stock up on books for the next year or so.

 

We also got lost in the countryside. We were trying to visit a museum that was tucked away in the countryside about 90 minutes outside of Paris, but we lost our way and ended up arriving five minutes before they closed. At least we were able to enjoy the view and the cute little towns we drove through along the way!

 


 

We ate tons of incredible food. Both at home and while out! Each time we go, Papi begs me to make tacos and so we had a Mexican food night (well, lunch really). I also made hand-stuffed hamburgers (lots of cheese and deliciousness grilled inside the meat), Cous-cous with Mamie (family recipes are really the best), and, of course, a trip to France would not be complete without crêpes.

 


 

We also took a trip to one of my new favorite spots in Paris to enjoy the view.

 

And we also enjoyed a number of walks around the city of Paris.

 

 

We drove about an hour outside of Paris to visit a Chateau and enjoy a delicious meal while braving the wind and surprisingly ferocious swans.

 

We watched the Eiffel Tower light up at night while driving along the Seine.

And I had the opportunity to visit my favorite language book publishing company, Assimil!

We intentionally lost ourselves in one of the many hedge mazes in France and enjoyed the challenge of finding our way out again.



And we spied into open doors as we ventured through the city to enjoy views of secret gardens and hidden stairwells.

I got a playground all to myself!



And we took a walk through the woods.

I discovered paradise.



And descended deep underground into old salt mines to explore champagne caves.

 

There you have it! A quick recap of our trip to Paris, France. Have you been? What are some of your favorite things to do while you are there? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

  • I can’t believe I didn’t have you on Instagram!!!
    I went to Paris Christmas 2012. It was really pretty (the department store windows are amazing in winter!) but I had a completely different view of the city than you in the summer.

    Also, I forgot to tell you, I’ve started using iTalki for Dutch after you wrote about it! I’ve had a lesson already and written a few diaries. I really like it. The only downside would be that I think Lang-8 has more of a community feel. I feel that iTalki is more of a group of randoms coming together without making connections. I hope that when I use it more, I’ll be able to make more friends on there.

    • That’s really interesting. I don’t really feel like Lang-8 has more of a community than iTalki, but that’s probably my own personal experience. I haven’t really tried to connect with anyone there any more than I have on iTalki. HelloTalk tends to be my favorite so far for that.

      Glad you got to try out iTalki and I hope you enjoyed your lesson!

      Paris during wintertime is so gorgeous, but I really love fall. That is by far my favorite season there.
