Travel Guide: Paris

It's finally here, my Paris Travel Guide. I think it took me forever to write my Paris posts but it feels like it's closing the door on my Parisian adventures. There is never enough time to explore Paris but I managed to fit a lot in my three days there. I stayed with family friends in the Canal St. Martin area which is less touristy and beautiful to walk around. The metro in Paris is very efficient (but also overwhelming!) so it's very easy to get from one side of the city to another. I opted to walk as much as possible to really get to explore all the side streets and little shops and ended up walking 20 miles in one day! If were being honest, this was over a month ago and my ankle still kinda hurts...

I won't go into as much detail about all the things on my lists since most of them are straightforward and I have plenty on here, but I will mention anything special or noteworthy and I'm always glad to answer questions in the comments.

Anyways, enough of my blabbering, let's get into what you're here for!
