Coco Takes London & Paris

I always have loved to travel and experience new places but when you go out of the country it takes travel to a whole other level. I’m going to be just giving you the main events done in both London and Paris rather then going into detail about every single thing we did.
The day we landed was an entire travel day, we woke up at 4AM EST and landed at 8 PM GMT had a bite to eat and went to bed. Because our next morning was going to be jammed packed with touristy things.

Day 1: We had planned did the “Total London Tour” which was a complete tour of London in one day. They took you to all the main tourist sights including Buckingham Palace, The London Eye and tons more. On the tour you stop to eat lunch so of course we went to Pizza Express and omg it was the best food in London. And then for dinner that night we finally got to experience Nandos! Our hopes were set so high but it was a let down for us. There was nothing too special about Nandos, sorry guys.

Day 2: Tour of Buckingham Palace and The Royal Mews, which you need your walking shoes on for this one. I’m not really into history so I didn’t find it necessary but it was for sure something you would only get to do once in your lifetime so why not? Later on for dinner we went to the “Faulty Towers Dining Experience” which was hilarious! If you have ever watched the show you would really be able to get into it but even if you didn’t and went in like me, not knowing anything it was all still very funny!

Day 3: We did the “50 Minute Thrill Speed Tour” which was a view of everything up and down the river in a James Bond speedboat!  After that we were on to my personal favorite part of the trip, which was “High Tea at Fortnum & Mason”. If you really want to take advantage of everything the tea has to offer you need to book a whole day there. I cannot even tell you how beautiful and perfect everything was and my sister’s favorite part about the tea was that “everything’s replenish-able”. We also went to “Harrods” for a little bit of shopping and then “Jamie’s Italian” for dinner!

Day 4: Travel day again but this time it was on a train from London to Paris. That night we had the “Eiffel Tour Evening Tour 7 Cruise” booked which was a sunset river tour and then passes up the Eiffel Tower, which was absolutely breathtaking, and for a very late dinner, CREPES!

Day 5: This day started out on a very high, my mom and sister ordered “large” sodas and they bring them a soda jug bigger then there head but when we got the bill the soda was $20 so my dads wallet wasn’t too thrilled about that. We then just walked around the Champs Elysee, had dinner and then got amazing frozen yogurt for dessert.

Day 6: Was our cooking class! We did a croissant class at “La Cuisine Paris”. Not only was the cooking class amazing it was delicious. And if your American wanting to take a French cooking class in Paris you need to visit Jane at La Cuisine Paris!

Day 7: my reason for going on this vacation, it was our “Travel Like A Local Paris Photo Shoot”. Personally I watch a little too much Americas Next Top Model and think I can actually model when in reality I really cant. But let me tell you with these photos my sister and I look like professional models taking pictures all over Paris. I took a little stumble down the stairs of the Paris Metro but that didn’t stop me from smizing my way through the rest of the shoot. After that we went to the Moulin Rouge which was an experience, let me tell you. It seemed very cheesy to me and did I forget to mention it’s a topless show!

Day 8: To end our trip we did an “L’open Tour” which was an open top bus tour, which I would only ever use again for transportation because whatever they were saying in the headphones put my whole family and I right to sleep. When we were switching busses we went to Fauchon, which is an amazing little café in Paris and if you see one you have to go in and try some goodies!
