Paris, France

First stop, Paris. If you would like to experience the local Parisian life and enjoy a lot of local cafes, clubs and restaurants stay in Montmartre area. It’s also near the tourist spots and train stations!

From the Airport (CDG) you can take a train to Paris. Maximize your visit and get a 2 or 3 day Paris Pass so you can go around the city with no fuss! You can buy it in any of the train stations.

You will notice that people like facing the streets when eating in cafes. Try it! It’s fun to do! I learned how to people-watch.

Moulin Rouge – It’s just along a  major road and usually there are a lot of cars in the morning. I suggest visit it at night with all the lights turned on!

Along the way to the cathedral of Notre Dame, you will see a lot of people selling old books, posters, and postcards! Good for souvenirs.

Look for this restaurant, the line is worth it! We had a good brunch and it’s relatively cheap, around 13-15 EUR so not bad! A lot of Parisians also go here to eat!
