Paris from an insidr view
Ahh Paris! The city of lights, history and romance! Such a beautiful place especially when you’re lucky enough to see it from a Parisian rooftop! But it’s also so easy to get lost in all the information available online, even for seasoned travelers. At INSIDR I came across these interesting articles that are totally worth reading! I’m someone who makes it to a point to buy souvenirs during my travels, and I found their notes on where to buy typically French gifts and where to find beauty, skincare, and cosmetics products to be really helpful! They even have a list of the most loved French beauty products on their site. And of course, FOOD. I was salivating upon reading their articles on delicious street food in Paris along with a solid selection of Parisian coffee shops. And if you’re into French wine, they’ve got that covered, too by introducing places to go for wine tasting in Paris.
I used to only think that to really enjoy a place, it must be on a perfectly sunny day. That way, you can walk around without feeling insecure, take amazing photos for souvenirs, and observe what a normal day for locals is like. While that’s still true, I’m starting to open up to the idea that a city by night is a completely different experience on its own. I loved reading the article by INSIDR on the range of different things one can do at night in Paris. I didn’t have doubts that there would be so many things to do in Paris but I wasn’t so sure they’d be interesting. One of my favorites out of the article’s suggestions is taking an evening river cruise on the Seine with Vedettes de Paris. Admittedly, it sounds cheesy but I think it’s one of those Paris things everyone should do at least once.
To me, France is probably one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Of course nothing compares to Paris but the country is even more beautiful beyond the capital. And I’m not just talking about taking a day trip to Versailles. With a perfect mix of nature, heritage, culinary delights, and culture, I could never recommend you enough to experience what the other towns have to offer. I think the articles at Insidr are the perfect guide to these hidden treasures! For those who are into history, you cannot miss the D-Day Beaches as well as the Mont Saint Michel area in the northern part of the country. And while you’re in the area, don’t forget to hit some of France’s quaint and charming towns like Dinan, Cancale, Bayeux, Etretat, Honfleur, Deauville and Saint Malo. And don’t leave Paris before visiting Giverny to marvel at Monet’s house and garden.
Insidr also writes a lot about destinations outside of France. Some of my favorites are from their London series. Probably since the 2012 Olympics, the popularity of London as a tourist destination has seemingly skyrocketed. Along that, the number of sources for information has gone up, too. I’m not really one who likes bouncing between websites to gather all my information which is why I really appreciate the work that Insidr does. They not only suggest travel itineraries for London that include lists of where to stay and what to eat, they also talk about the best bars in the city, too! I also like that Insidr was thoughtful enough to come up with a guide to the public transportation in London. I think taking trains or buses in cities acquaint you with a place faster! And speaking of taking trains, it was interesting to read their suggestions for taking day trips outside of London!
The Insidr articles I read about London made me realize how it is such a special city with infinite things to do! I love how they prepared guides and recommendations on London’s different neighborhoods like Westminster, Camden, Shoreditch, Notting Hill, London Bridge, Covent Garden and Greenwich. They didn’t leave the important practical stuff out either! You’ll save a ton of money on Uber or taxi rides after reading their guide to public transportation in the city and how to get to and from the local airports.
