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.

Overall, France - you have have exceeded my expectations. My camera roll is full and so is my heart.

Staycation @ Burrard

Here is a little glimpse from our stay at the Burrard in Vancouver, BC.

Kassie & I are from the suburbs, being downtown even for a short trip gave us a breath of creativity and rest. The Burrard has loads of character, and the friendliest staff. We felt very taken care of and were steps away from the cutest shops & restaurants.

After checking in we got changed & had dinner at the Warehouse (we sure love $5 food)! In the morning we had a waffle craving were able to grab a coffee from Elysian on our way out. The Burrard has amazing branding & social media presence, it feels like you are in California while still in the heart of Vancouver.

When staying at the hotel you get to use the cutest bikes! We took advantage of this perk for our photoshoot. Overall, if you want the best Instagram photos & loads of DM's wondering "where is that!", "that place is so cute" this is the place to be!
