Paris is always a good idea…That quote couldn’t be more true!
Hello fellow wanderers!
I’ve decided to share some packing tips to the City of Lights, as I am on my way there soon for my honeymoon!
I absolutely adore Paris, although I was not in love with it at first sight! Yes, yours truly was actually very mellow when I first landed in Paris, almost 4 years ago. Granted, I had one of the worst jet lags I had ever experienced, was beyond exhausted, and was forced to tour around Trocadéro and Les Champs-Elysées.
Fortunately, I had a rapid change of heart, and I fell deeply and passionately in love with everything the French culture offered. This is why I am returning there for my honeymoon! I simply raved (and still do) about Paris to my fiancé, and he’s very excited to see this city that feels like home away from home to me.
What to Pack for Paris
I have never been in France in the summer, but I was there late May before I left. Typically, Paris is warm but a bit cool in the mornings and evenings. I have been looking at the weather forecast, and it would seem that is what we are to expect, along with a chance of rain.
This is perfectly fine by me! Touring under a hot sun in a country where public washrooms are not ideal, and you are walking constantly, is not my idea of a great honeymoon. So low 20s (Celsius) for me is just peachy! I even bought a gorgeous new rain coat in case it rains!
There are 3 guidelines I followed when selecting my outfits and items of clothing.
We will be in Paris for a total of 6 days before heading to Belgium, and here is what I packed:
