// just walking around Paris and ended up at a palace // 💛
Our last day in Paris was a busy one packed with lots of things to do, see, and eat (duh!). I knew in a few days time I would be going back home so I wanted to make the most of this time without overdoing it. When I say “overdo” I mean pushing myself too hard where things don’t seem so enjoyable. .
Some things I’ve learned while traveling that have made my journeys more enjoyable are:
- listen to your body, if you’re tired, rest! Take a siesta if needed, sit on a bench, or go into a bar for a much needed beverage. - leave room for the unexpected. Plan your heart out if you’re a planner but leave room for the unplanned because those are some of the most fun moments!
- self care!! I always back face masks with me on trips. At least once a week I have to have some time where I chill with a face mask on and take care of myself. Whatever it is that you enjoy, DO IT!
- get recommendations from locals. Some of the best places I’ve been to and loved were recommended by locals. Sure we see places on Instagram that are “soooo Instagramable” and super cute but the less crowded hidden gems are almost always a better experience. And the restaurant recommendations are most of the time so on point! Sure, we all can be a sucker for a cute cafe (guilty!) but recommendations are where it’s at!
What do like doing to make your travels demore enjoyable? .
