Paris

Balanced Being Travel: Paris


The perfect weekend destination and just 2 hours via the Eurostar from London, Paris is a firm favourite for couples, hipsters and those wanting a city break within easy reach.

Like London, Paris is consistently evolving, and my recent trip introduced me to some new hotspots in the capital.

Here are my top travel tips while visiting the city.

Where To Eat 

You are spolit for choice in Paris for food. The city boasts many healthier eateries then my last visit 5 years back. Perfect for balancing out the indulgent meals and croissants.

Leading the way on the ‘indulgent’ eateries currently is Balagan. Paris’s answer to London’s nopi. Located just off Rue Saint-Honoré, its Jerusalem-style clash with Moroccan-Isreli style cooking washed down with vibrant cocktails is a must visit.

For those working on the go, Hardware Société is unashamedibly cool and perfect for brunch. The wild mushrooms, with hazelnut crumb, poached eggs on sourdough and roast cauliflower foam is THE best brunch dish I’ve ever had.
