Camping France

After three great days in Germany, Holland and Belgium and a lot of driving we slept long and packed our things to leave Belgium in order go get to France.

We left Martin´s place at noon and had a four hour drive to Paris in front of us. It took a little longer because we want to see more of the nature and so we didn´t take the tall roads. But I think this is the best decision when you are traveling in Europe.

Because the nature looked so cool, Jeremy had the idea to camp one Night before we spend one or two nights in Paris.


On our way we found a camping spot which looked very good. Nobody was there, when we looked around and after a while somebody was coming who we could ask.

He said the door is open, we should just drive in and pick our favorite spot for the night, because it is not packed at all.

That was a great plan! So we drove to the little village two minutes away, bought a delicious french baguette and got food at McDonald, because the Restaurants were closed or didn´t look good :-/

Back at the camping spot we set up our tent and the mattress. At about 9.30 pm the owner of the Camp came and so we had to pay 14€ for the Night. We aktually thought it is for free, but 14€ was a very good price compared to the superexpensive Hotels in Paris.

The Night was ok, but really cold. Good thing that we had one sleeping bag, which we could use as a blanket. We are happy for the perfect spain weather, which is waiting for us 🙂





Paris is a beautiful city, especially in spring and summer months.

Sightseeing in Paris

  • The Eiffel Tower 

This is the most famous attraction in Paris and the perfect viewing platform. In 276 meters every visitor has a fantastic view over the whole city. My tip: Go at sunset!

  • Musée du Louvre

Home to the Mona Lisa. The huge museum with the beautiful glass pyramid is located between the River Seine and Rue Rivoli.

  • Basilica of the Sacré Cœur on the Montmartre

The white Roman Catholic pilgrimage church on the highest mountain in Paris, Montmartre is beautiful. Here you will have a great view over Paris. Also, take some time to walk a bit through the neighborhood and check out the small bars, cafes and restaurants.

  • Champs Elysées

A true shopping paradise 😉 Here you can find all the well-known luxury brands.

  • Notre Dame

The Notre Dame Cathedral is located on the Seine island in the center of Paris and is around 900 years old. Entrance to the church is free but entry into the towers of Notre Dame is 8€ for adults.

Palace of Versailles

The magnificent Château de Versailles castle was the residence of the French monarch Louis XIV to Louis XVI. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful works of French art. The royal private rooms and especially the Hall of Mirrors are impressive.

My favorite part is the vast park of the castle. It is very well maintained and beautifully landscaped and invites you to relax in a royal atmosphere.

It certainly makes sense to buy the tickets in advance. We arrived early in the morning, but were determined 1.5 to 2 hours in the yard in to ever come clean.
