My completed Paris bucket list

I made myself a little Paris bucket list when I first moved here all the way back in September, adding to it each time I came across something I wanted to do.

I am incredibly proud to say that a couple of days ago, on my last weekend in Paris, I completed it.

This evoked a strange mix of triumph and defeat, as I’ve now taken everything I wanted to from the city. Of course, there are endless things to do here and I have only just begun to scratch the surface, but for this year I can honestly say I am leaving having done everything I wanted to do.

1. Climb the Arc de Triomphe

Anyone who knows me at all will know that I have had the most spectacular year in Paris. There is not an ounce of doubt in the fact I will be back, and in the meantime I will reminisce and probably have a meltdown over photos.

Best wishes from, for the last time, Paris x
