24 Hours in Paris

8:00 am Breakfast at Hilton Paris Opera at Le Grand Salon

You will be impressed by the grandeur of the recently renovated hotel. The entrance instantly takes your breath away with the stunning detailed decor and the food is even better! Coming from Dubai, it’s almost impossible to keep me indoors when the temperature outside is anything less than 24 degrees Celsius, but the breakfast here managed to do so. You can also read my review on the hotel {here}



10:00 am Visit L’Opéra Garnier

Construction of the opera building started in 1862, but it wasn’t completed until 1875, partly because an underground lake was discovered during construction. The small lake still exists under the opera building. It was the hiding place of the ‘Phantom of the Opera’ in Paul Leroux’s famous play. the building has a seating capacity of less than 2,200, the building is one of the largest theatres in the world by acreage. I can not even begin to describe the amount of history we learned during our 3 hour tour visit.

3:00 pm Paris Authentic

By far…the COOLEST way to see Paris. Unusual tour through the most historical Parisian monuments in a 2cv car. We were also fortunate enough to have a brilliant man driving and sharing stories you would never hear otherwise of Paris and the history of every corner. Napoleonic imperialism, romanticism in Montmartre, the steep streets of the Marais, the popular and bohemian Paris of the East, and many more! Places we covered also included villages, Avenue des Champs Elysées – Arc de Triomphe – Trocadéro – Tour Eiffel – Invalides – Pont Alexandre 3 – Petit et Grand Palais – Place de la Concorde – Opéra Garnier – Place Vendôme – Pyramide du Louvre – Notre Dame – Musée d’Orsay …




8:00 pm Dinner at Lazare Restaurant

A bustling modern brasserie concept with old world touches that is open throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, tea & dinner serving exceptionally great food!

  • I told myself I won't be emotional on take off as I fly out to celebrate TJD turning 4, to a place I've always dreamt of going... I realized then that this 'feelings' part of me is exactly who I am, with full transparency. It would have been ugly not to have emotions anyway. 
I'll always be that girl who turned her passion that she strongly believed in, into a business in which today, makes me more alive than I ever was. 
I'll always be the girl who sometimes speaks before she thinks and the one who will always survive from everything despite how much time it could take me to get there. 
TJD turns 4. 
Im lucky to have known what I wanted to do with my life since the 7th grade. Despite the journey that had me battling my way through, I always knew one thing, I knew what I wanted, I always did. 
I'll always do. 
That made my faith in chasing my dreams, without anyone stopping me, stronger. 
The best part of this year is launching @travel4apurpose Another long time dream turning into reality. 
The one thing I know for sure is that I couldn't have gotten this far without some of the most inspiring people in my life that stuck to me not only at my best, but most of all at my worst. When you have those kind of people, wether it's one or ten, you drop everything for them...It's what the entire world is after, isn't it?
You drop the games, you drop the ego and you stick together and you inspire and... you love. Because when you hang on to them, you celebrate together & they make your whole success and dreams worth every minute of it. #TJDTurns4
