Sous le ciel de Paris {Travel Photography}

Under the Parisian sky, you will find beautiful monuments and photogenic places.

Crepes, coffee & the Eiffel Tower are a must! I even bought a beret to go with the iconic Paris tourist theme. If you love beautiful scenery, delicious food & fresh bread - Paris is for you!

I think we struck gold with the photo spots - this was my favourite view of the tower!

Couldn’t stop singing: “Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit , Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées”

We quickly realized a place worth visiting if you find yourself in France is Disney Paris. Every corner felt like being in a real life movie. The parks felt magical! Their PR team was so prompt with e-mail responses

In my head I can picture Ratatouille helping the chef make the meal by pulling his hair - haha.

My Disney Paris Tips:

Check out both parks - One of my favourite parts of this experience was watching the stunt show. Don’t blink, this choreographed care chase and special effect show really keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Get the app - Something we learnt mid way through the day was that we would be able to view schedules, maps and WAIT TIMES via the app.

Second times the charm - We actually had enough time to do some rides twice. Which I highly recommend. Get the photo face you actually wanted, or keep your eyes open this time to notice some details you may have missed the first time around.

Don’t miss the parade - Definitely, 100% watch the parade. Workers did a great job at directing people to the view areas while clearing the path. I loved the singing, dancing, and special appearances from so many amazing characters.

Bring a portable charger - There are too many photo moments to capture, so be prepared to use your phone for videos and photos lots! A portable charger ensures you have the battery life to last!

I loved:

Coffee - No time for naps, there was too much to be excited about! I was so grateful for the many places that sold coffee in the park. 10/10 and much needed.

Food - Feel free to pack snacks, but I saved up my appetite for a meal in the park, where I had some amazing fajitas. There were many options and styles of food to choose from so we each got exactly what we were craving.

Lion King - What more is there to say. We went before the opening of the Lion King & Jungle festival, but it made us very eager to return. These new shows and exhibits just started 2 days ago. (JUNE 22 ) and run until September! Anyone want to come with? ;)

Costumes - Leave it to Disney to make you wish you could dress up everyday of your life! Not only was every person we interacted with bilingual, but they greeted us with friendly smiles and really cool costumes that were associated with their ride/attraction!

Fast Pass - The fast pass life is the way to go. Waiting times are very visible above each ride, so it helped us use our fast pass strategically. You are given a time slot to which you can come back which means we got to do rides that were less busy and grab snacks while rather than be in line the entire time.

What is a struggle you have over come?

The biggest struggle I ever had to overcome, was definitely the passing of my father. My dad passed away when I was just becoming a teenager, so going through my teenage life without a solid male role model around was, to put it lightly... “rough”.

It made me constantly search for something/someone to fill the void that was created. It was a roller coaster of a battle against myself to change the WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME?! perspective, into a I will be the BEST version of myself possible BECAUSE this has happened to me. 

I will be the BEST version of myself possible BECAUSE this has happened to me. 
 

What lifestyle choices are you making to be genuinely happy? 

Learning how to put yourself first has been a huge lesson for me, if you don’t know how to make yourself happy then how can you expect to make another human being happy? Everything starts from within. If you don’t understand how to start from within, then your outsides will be super limited. Your insides reflect your outsides, and the sooner you can realize that the sooner you can start focusing on what truly matters. Rather than always running to other people’s rescue (which is making them have to rely on you, for their happiness) Teach them how to rescue themselves, so that they can be their own source of happiness.

SOME PRO TIPS

Here are 3 simple reminders/tips I like to give myself.

1. The thing that you’re motivated to do when you’re at your weakest is the thing that you should be doing always.

Let me clarify, whatever you find yourself naturally gravitating towards at the beginning or end of a full day is what you should be doing all day.

2. Gary Vaynerchuk drill this into my existence and it’s the most motivating statement I’ve ever heard. Their is a 400 TRILLION to 1 chance of you being born. Whenever you’re unmotivated just remember how damn lucky you’re to even be alive right now, stop taking it for granted and get to work on whatever it is that fires you up to live your best every single day.

3. Young and Old: Integrate Young and old people into your lifestyle immediately if you haven’t already, age is the best teacher that we have.

Children teach us to be in the moment more, and in our heads less, to be amazed by the most simple of things, simply because life in it’s natural state is genuinely beautiful.

They teach us to believe in the unbelievable, that anything is possible, to smile and laugh more, and many many more things.

Elderly teach us to be patient, to not take life for granted, to enjoy every moment while it lasts, to follow our wildest dreams sooner rather than later, to take advantage of every moment that we have with our family members.

They teach us to have pride in our family heritage, they teach us the importance of history through the tales of their souls that they share so lovingly with us newer generation, and many many more things.

I’ll leave you with this, you only have one life. Nobody knows the answers on how we’re supposed to live it, as long as you can go to bed every night knowing that if it was your last night on this earthly planet, and you could fall asleep with a smile on your face knowing that you had accomplished everything that you’ve wanted to in your past days, then you have lived the perfect life.
