Lunch on the Seine

Susan, Lisa, and I went to Paris wanting to drink in the entire experience β€” just on a college budget.

 

There was this boat tour attraction allowing people to wine and dine while enjoying the beautiful sights of the Seine River. Unfortunately, that deal was +40 euros and a little to steep for our budget. Rather than dismissing the entire idea, we just made some adjustments. (:

Verdict? SUCCESS!

One morning we strolled into a grocery store and picked up some easy things we could eat with our hands. We got: baguettes, hummus, fruits, and a entire gallon of orange juice. We then purchased tix for a different boat tour that costed roughly 11 euros. It was a simple boat tour, lasting 45 minutes allowing passengers to relax and hear fun sightseeing facts. We brought our groceries onto the boat, and just enjoyed our meal there.

It was, basically, lunch on the Seine River for half the price! I would definitely recommend this if you’re making a trip to Paris and want to save some monies. πŸ™‚ We were still able to get a great view of the Eiffel Tower and take pictures in front of it, too.
