by

A Weekend In Paris. After my third visit, I can now officially say 'I GET IT'. I love Paris. So, you might ask what made me change my mind? What made me finally fall in love with Paris? Well, it took a long weekend, prior visits have been short and sweet, never enough time to discover or do enough. This time was different. I'll tell you 3 things that made me fall in love with Paris on this visit. Weekend In Paris The HotelHotel Le Cinq Codet, the most luxury and chic boutique hotel I've ever stayed in Paris. Where you stay in Paris matters A LOT! Le Cinq Codet is so well located and easily accessible. Closest metros are École Militaire, La Tour-Maubourg and Invalides. Walking distance to Rue de l'Université which leads to the Eiffel Tower, approximately 15 minutes walk to Pont Alexandre III bridge which is one of the 'IT' places ...

One Night In Paris

One night in Paris! Guys, I can not tell you how much I needed to get away. Even if only for one day...and I did just that. Coincidentally, I was in Paris same time 3 years ago with my other half, you can read about that trip in this Travel Diary. This time, I went with my friend. I think city breaks are perfect for friends. I haven't been outside of the UK in almost 3 years, so YES, here's to the first trip of many this year - so help me God.   So, we left for Paris early Saturday morning, had no rest, did stuff, went to bed at 4 am. With 4 hours of sleep, we were up and about again on Sunday. Got on the train back to London at 7 pm on Sunday. Didn't get back home until 12am. I've been a like a zombie all week, I'm running ...

Travel Diary | Paris | Dressed in Black

by

Final day in Paris was a trip to see the Notre Dame. The train back to London wasn't until 7pm, so we had enough time to do some more sightseeing. Visiting the Notre Dame was the last thing on my 'to do' list. I was dressed for comfort as usual, wearing my converse and a hat to help against the wind and I also piled on a couple extra layers underneath my dress - anything to keep warm. Stopped by for lunch at Aux Tours de Notre Dame which I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Paris. The food was very nice and the interior wasn't what I was expecting. The inside was well decorated, felt more like a restaurant than it looked from the outside. The 'adventurous me' chose from the suggestions du jour on the menu, which was also recommended by the waiter - Frogs' Legs ...

Travel Diary | Paris | The Eiffel

by

One of the things I desperately wanted to do while in Paris was to go up the Eiffel Tower. Of course, it's the major tourist attraction and my mission would not be accomplished if I didn't. It was so windy and my hair was all over the place, I had to buy a beanie from a souvenir stall near by. We got up to the second floor when my boyfriend chickened out. He's not the one for heights which I already knew, so I had to compromise, it wouldn't be as fun if I went all the way on my own. We did a bit of touring around the area, walked along the river and stopped by for yummy macaroons at a cosy cafe called Carette before heading back to the the hotel. Whilst on our way to the Eiffel Tower, we discovered that our hotel wasn't ...
