What I planned to do in Paris but didn’t

So last October, my boyfriend and I celebrated our four year anniversary. To celebrate we were going to go to Paris in January for a five day vacation. We had been before so this was a chance to go and see not just the typical touristy things. I found airbnbs, I had friends in the city, I looked up things to do! He even found flights ROUND TRIP FROM CINCINNATI TO PARIS FOR LIKE THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS.

But we didn’t go. Instead we (obviously) moved to China. Which is great and fun in it’s own right, but I have so much stuff just written down on my laptop for Paris! So here we go, my list of places in Paris I looked up, but didn’t get to see.

And this is great because now you guys can sound off in the comments on what you love to do in Paris and I can come back to this list when I finally go!


Paris foods

soul kitchen:  English speaking cafe for when you need wifi and to feel confident with your words.

Address: 33 Rue Lamarck, 75018 Paris, France

hardware societe: Amazing brunch restaurant. Like many wonderful places, it has a nice Australian spin on it.

Address: 10 Rue Lamarck, 75018 Paris, France

Le treize: Great for beer, or so I have heard. I walked by this once when it was closed and saw a lot of plants.

Address: 13 Rue Dussoubs, 75002 Paris, France

boneshaker: This place has doughnuts!

Address: 77 Rue d’Aboukir, 75002 Paris, France

cerwood terrasse: I’ve been told its a good place for a snack or a coffee. When it’s time to rest your feet, head here for people watching. OR just sit at any cafe, get a noisette and pull out a note book.

Address: 8 Rue Jean-Baptiste Dumay, 75020 Paris, France

the hood paris: A place to chill, feel like you can spend a long time here. I also heard they may have open mic nights?

le 2 au coin: Is this a florist or a cafe? If a place makes me ask that question, I want to stay there foreverrrr. Also vegetarian friendly.

Address: 7 rue Notre Dame de Bonne Nouvelle, 75002 Paris, France

lockwood cafe:

Address: 73 Rue d’Aboukir, 75002 Paris, France

The thing about making ‘guides’ for Paris.. it’s like everywhere is going to be good or interesting. For those who are not adventurous enough to try random restaurants, I hope this list will help you find things you like!
