Paris, France #beachiebeautytravels #winterwonderland

Our winter wonderland extravaganza continues with Paris, France. A go to place to live, explore and shop. Our map takes us to a fashion stop like no other. Tour the eiffel tower to get a cool view of the city. Have lunch at the one the restaurants and be in awe of its beauty at the end of the evening when it lights up.
Slow down to take a visit at the Louvre museum , while there a peak at the Mona Lisa herself is all the rave. The museum is a small cost and you can take practically all day just viewing artifacts. After you have indulged in your favorite art scheme be sure to stop for a bit to eat. They’re  plenty of eateries around to take in the sites.
Champs-Elysées in winter is magical when you want to stroll with your love one. Rick Steves one of my favorite travel guys says so. As you make your way in the city you will notice lots of shops. Be sure to visit some, and keep me in mind.
