Waking up at 5am to get on the early Eurostar to Paris. Getting soaked on the Champs Elysees and having to emergency buy an umbrella from Marks & Spencer (and sneakily use the Dyson hairdryer in Sephora). Unexpectedly finding parks and the Eiffel Tower. Eating a somewhat underwhelming meal on the first floor (good for ambiance though). Taking all the most instagrammable view shots. Going to the Louvre, finding the holy grail, the Mona Lisa and the Viva La Vida album painting. Eating an amazing meal at Le Maison de Verlaine. Discovering Notre Dame is just a fifteen minute walk from the hotel. Going to the jazz club from La La Land. Waking up bright and early for croissants and heading to Euro Disney. Screaming my face off, seeing small children getting super excited at meeting all their favourite characters and buying Disey ears (of course).
Getting to spend my 24th birthday in Paris with my housemates was pretty amazing. It’s a city that deserves leisurely wanders, and I’ll definitely be going back.
