Interview for Jan’s Hidden Travel.

Danielle 1Today I did an interview for Jan’s Hidden Travel, I know I’m not the only one they asked (so I don’t feel special or something ;) but I thought it was a fun thing to do and to share on my blog. Hope you enjoy!

What do you do?
Hi, my name is Daniëlle and I’m a art student blogging about the most inspiring city in the world, Paris! Every week I write articles and photograph the things in Paris that catch my eye. The people who read my blog are the ones who keep me motivated and if they need me, I’m always there to answer their questions :)

Why Do People Need Your Business?
Paris is a big city and most tourist guides don’t tell you about the hidden places. I do! I show people my view of Paris and everything that comes with it. Just a normal girl, wandering the streets of Paris. I don’t create unrealistic expectations, I only teach the readers of my blog, how they can get the best out of their trip to Paris.
What are some of the most amazing things about your city?
The most fascinating thing about Paris are the beautiful colors and the variation of the city. Every district feels like a different world. That makes every building, person, animal or object so interesting, especially to photograph! I love to discover new things in Paris because, this city isn’t only a place with millions of sights and stores, but also a place with many years of (art) history.Oh and by the way, the Parisians are truly kind people. Don’t let you tell otherwise!
Where would you go on a lonely Wednesday evening?
That can be at so many places. For example the Marais, a neighborhood that always lives. Take place on a terrace, enjoy a basked of french garlic bread and watch the crowd go by. If you don’t want to spend that much money, get yourself some falafel and sneak to the hidden garden: Jardis des Rosies.If you’re a fan of modern art, you can go to Palais de Tokyo, it’s open till 12 midnight!
Where are the best places to go when the weather is horrible?! 
You know what they say: it’s Paris, you don’t come here for the weather. I do have to confess that when it’s raining, I hurry myself to the closest bakery. Paris has a lot of them. My favorite is Coquelicot in Montmartre.I do understand that when you’re visiting Paris, you don’t want to sit all day in a bakery, how cute their are ;) So I have a few other tips for you.1. Subway chillings! I know that sounds a bit weird but, did you knew that every subway station in Paris has a theme that has something to do with the French history. Take Fulgence Bienvenue as an example, also known as the father of the metro! So much to learn, you only have to buy one ticket and you can travel the whole day underground.2. Speaking of going underground, the catacombs are really worth to visit. The catacombs are an underground cemetery where more than 6 million Parisians have found their final resting place.3. Alright, I also understand that maybe you don’t get excited about seeing dead people. There are many more places to go while it’s raining. Check out: Villette Science Park, Louis Vuitton Foundation, Marche couvert Saint Quentin (very big flea/antique market), Shakespeare & Company and if you want to know more places… just read the rest of my blog!
What’s the most romantic restaurant in this city and WHY?
That’s a question, I can’t answer. I’m really not that romantic haha. I love to eat outside instead of a restaurant. But if you are still waiting for an answer… order a pizza at Pink Flamingo (at Canal St.Martin). You get a pink balloon with you while you search for a romantic spot along the canal. Because of your pink balloon they where to find you and when your pizza is there…a romantic night is guaranteed ♥ Don’t forget to buy a bottle of wine!
What are your best money saving tips?
I once wrote a post about that on my blog. I always say: buy your food at local markets. The prices are way lower and the food is even fresher! Instead of going to a restaurant choose for ‘food-on-the-go’. You don’t have to pay 5 euros for a glass of juice, don’t have to sit next to strangers and you can sit (almost) wherever you want!Oh, and save money on sightseeing. There are a lot of free sights like: the cemetery Pére Lachaise, the Sacré Coeur (beautiful view of the city), Le Musée du Parfum, and many gardens like Jardin du Luxembourg and the Tuileries. On the first Sunday of the month, Centre Pompidou and the Louvre are free to visit.
What are your goals?
My goal is to become a real Paris expert. I would love to write my own travel guides, including my own photography and illustrations. I would love to create travel videos with information and impressions about Paris through my eyes. Basically, I just want to share my knowledge and experiences with the world.
What or WHO would help you hit your goals?
Everyone who reads my blog, share my articles, ask me questions, share their thoughts or ask me to write for them are helping me to achieve my goals. So please, keep doing what you’re doing, I appreciate a lot!

L’Univers de Léo – souvenirs in Paris.

Notre Dame Postcard

Let’s talk about an ordinary souvenir shop called L’univers de Léo. Why? Because discovering a city like Paris, as a tourist, isn’t always a bad idea. Also the popular souvenir shops have cool items you want to take home. Even if it is just a small postcard ;) I have to be honest, it still remains a souvenir shop. The final concept of the store is not as original as it should have been but… you have to love this store. It’s full of happy colors, must-have gadgets and a lot of presents.

I’ll give you a little impression.

No comments, just think about it – Paris

No comments, only think about itTo truly love the city, you must understand the city. That’s because Paris isn’t a normal city. It’s romantic, chaotic, mysterious, always surprisingrich but also poor. Paris isn’t a city with only a bright side. Even trough we try to ignore the poor side often, we don’t get away with it. We also must accept the flaws of the city, which isn’t always easy for us to do..

Do not judge by appearances. A rich heart may be under a poor coat –  Scottish Proverd

Antique Paris.

Vintage storeHere we go again, another lovely shop in Paris. This time, full with restored furniture and other antique stuff!

Hier Pour Demain is located in the Marais and they are specialized in furniture and decoration items from the 30’s and 60’s. They also have a small assortment of jewelry (my favorite part). If you take a look at the photo below you can see some items from the store. For example: look at those letters saying ‘cuisine’, I need those for my own kitchen, so adorable ♥

I’ve told you before that unique/antique items in Paris (basically anywhere in the world) are very expensive. If you know the right places it may be better than expected. This time, I have a picture of the price lists in the display case. As you can see.. €150 for a lamp is quite expensive. On the other hand, you have something special, something antique and it’s already restored for you.

Is it still a bit too expensive? Watching costs no money and it’s (almost) just as fun!Vinatge store
