**I wrote this post almost one year ago and realized I never posted! One year ago today, on my way back from Morocco, I was gallivanting around Paris, hitting up all of my favorite spots, so I thought it was only right to share my take on what to do if you ever find yourself with 7 hours to spare in Paris!When life gives you lemons….take an overnight layover in Paris!
On a recent trip I found myself with an overnight layover at CDG. I was schedule to fly out first thing Monday morning, but decided I was too close to not spend the day in Paris, the macaroons were calling my name! So, I “volunteered” to bump myself off of my oversold morning flight and opted for a PM flight. An hour later I was snuggled up in an airport hotel, giddy at the thought of Paris in the morning! It had been a year and a half since I was last in Paris with my Mom, I made my plan of attack to ensure I would hit all of my favorite spots in the time I had.
I woke up early to catch the RER into the city leaving me 7 hours to explore before having to head back to the airport to catch my flight. I took the metro to the Invalides stop and began my day! There is nothing better than emerging from the metro onto the Paris streets, I did a little giddy dance, repeating to myself “I’m in Paris!!” I said a quick hello to the “eiff then took a stroll over the Pont Alexander.
