A good few months ago myself and some friends went on a jaunt across the channel to Paris. I still find it crazy that in a day you can hop on the Eurostar, visit a different country, and then jump on the train back home. This particular trip was a 21st birthday present from my lovely mum, for myself and my two best friends. I’d been harping on about visiting the city so to presented with the Eurostar tickets was an absolute dream!
After an early start we certainly packed a lot into one day. Arriving in Paris and immediately hopping on the metro. As a former Londoner, I feel like the Parisian metro was easy enough, I just didn’t count on the doors closing so quickly. Getting trapped between those was not fun! All the classics had to be seen and after grabbing a fresh baguette we prepared ourselves for the climb up the Eiffel Tower. The may have been a large amount of stairs but the views were more than worth it. There was even a little bread festival going on outside the Notre Dame!
A day in Paris was the best birthday present I could have been given. The city is stunning and well worth a visit. Next time I hope to stay a few days, really experience the city.
