Bonjour! Last weekend a friend and I hopped onto the Eurostar and caught the 9.10am lift to Paris. With no idea what to expect we decided we were going to spend 3 fun-filled days exploring the city and being as French as we could – french fries count as ‘French’ right? En route we tried to remind ourselves of that GCSE french homework (that we possibly didn’t complete) and then agreed that we would use the phrase book to get by.
We enthusiastically scurried up the Eiffel Tower, admired the Mona Lisa’s wondering eye and took pictures from the Arc de Triomphe. As well as the usual sights we drank in a ‘Medical Bar’ of which served drinks out of test tubes and had x-ray decoration, we sketched out our drink orders in a children’s character themed bar (who knew the Little Mermaid cocktail would contain vodka – naughty Ariel) and spent our holiday money in a vintage shop where the price was determined by the weight. I walked away as the incredibly happy owner of a light weight skirt and blouse for 9 Euros. All this, along with the abundance of pastries, has left me excitedly planning for another trip to France.
Lots of Parisian Love x
