PARIS hotspots



Hi guys! I'm back from my lovely trip to Paris. What an amazing city. Spending a week in this city has not bored me one moment. Since Vin and I took a week of vacation we decided to visit some museums (the classics + the non-classis), discover new bars and restaurants and enjoy our time strolling around the city of love. We teamed up to find the greatest locations. I've summed up some of my favorite places out there and I'm sharing them here with you :) 

I hope you like them as much as I did. Feel free to send me questions about my trip if they aren't answered in this post. Oh and I'd like to add a special thanks to Emma (@emmadaeleman) and my dear followers on Instagram for their amazing tips. I'm heading to The Hague this weekend so hit me up with your favorite places out there. You'll find mine out here next week. See ya!

Love,
Joya


FOOD & DRINKS

1/ Passager - great spot for breakfast or a coffee stop during a day of shopping (+picture on top of this post :-) )


2/ La vache et le cuisinier - as the name already tells you, this place is one for the meat lovers who want to enjoy a nice piece of meat. Plus, everything is home anddd the staff is super friendly!


3/ Le Poutch - great for breakfast as their homemade granola is to die for!



4/ Café Kitsuné - coffee stop material!



5/ Used book café (part of the Merci shop) - great teas, coffees and little bites combined with a stunning location in which you're surrounded by books, books and books



6/ Tôpette - Paris' smallest coffee shop


7/ Mama Shelter's restaurant - fine dining and great tip from my lovely photographer Billie (@billiegielen)

8/ Les Fernandes, Le bistro des filles que les garçons adorent - lunch spot where you'll only find the real Parisiennes



9/ L'as du Fallafel - Writing in The New York Times travel section, Mark Bittman asserts that "this is the fallafel destination in Paris"



SHOPS

1/ Kilo Shop - pay vintage per kilo! There are a few of them around Paris, so easy catch

2/ Merci - favorite shop in Paris, as they have the best quality, unique brands and the interior is stunning. Tip: if you're looking for a present, go there!



3/ Lesca Lunetier - handmade unique sunglasses


4/ LOFT - the kind of concept store you dream of at night



INTERESTING MUSEA & LOVELY PLACES

1/ Palais de Tokyo - my personal favorite museum in Paris with currently eight artists who are presenting their work




2/ Cité de la Mode et du Design - make sure you visit the rooftop for a drink and some nice tunes during summer


3/ Fondation Louis Vuitton - TIP: make sure you buy tickets online and avoid the hugeee waiting line to the museum. If you forgot, like I did (oops), you can enjoy the impressing architecture by Frank Gehry


4/ Institut du monde arabe - take the elevator to their rooftop and enjoy the amazing view over La Seine, La Notre Dame and the entire city


5/ Place des Vosges - nice place to hang out and enjoy the calmth of Paris


6/ Centre Pompidou - very interesting permanent collection and worth having a look at the huge constructions in- and outside this building.



7/ Quai de Jemmapes - great place to hang out and sit by the water


STAY
Vin and I stayed at an Airbnb for the first time and we loved it! It was located in le Marais so we could easily get to some of these above mentioned spots without having to take the metro. When we did have to travel by metro, it went pretty easy with two big metro stops in the neighborhood (Arts et Métiers and République). The appartment was clean, smartly decorated and well-equipped. Fernando, the owner of the place, left us a bottle of wine and some basic tools to cook. I would for sure recommend this one! Link to the appartment is: https://www.airbnb.nl/rooms/14257157.



Some more shots I took when discovering the city of Paris! Hope you like the spots :)
