As much as Parisians leave for summer holidays during the month of August. A good amount decide to stay. Sometimes you don’t have to go far to enjoy, in reality a “staycation” in Paris isn’t half bad. Paris transforms to a laid back oasis, streets are empty, you can actually breathe in the metro, and best of all you can take advantage of doing things you don’t normally have the time to do. Below, I created a bucket list of things I am looking forward to do and explore this month in and around Paris! For those around town, what are you looking forward to doing? La rentrée ( back to school, work,etc) is right around the corner, so enjoy the slower pace while it last!!
