Paris

Hi,

At March we did a weekend trip to Paris to celebrate Sarah’s birthday.
Paris has never been a “must go” place to me, but of course I have always thought that it would be interesting city to see and visit. Before going there I didn’t know very much what to expect, except Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame. Also what I heard before the trip was that people in Paris are rude and proud and they don’t like anyone who is not speaking French.
But after the trip I have to say that we didn’t experience anything like that during our stay in Paris.

Without any planning or research we managed to go there during weekend when all the trains in Paris were free to use because of some kind of campaign to reduce cars and pollution inside the city. So of course we took advantage of that and used metros to go longer distances around the city. But if you have time, walking is the best option, since there is so much to see.


My slight fear of heights almost made me to shit myself when we went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, but luckily we survived without laundry.

People were also very nice, no one acted rudely against us. And what best, there is nice cafes and restaurants everywhere, for the good coffee La Cafeotheque is the place and probably the best bakery in Paris is La Patisserie Cyril Lignac, unbelievably tasty macarons and cakes. With a smaller budget you can also find good food and wine there, like we managed to do. Now I know how blue cheese snails and stuffed duck neck tastes like, and Sarah has experienced whole plate full of weird sea animals 🙂

All in all it was a very good trip and very nice city where we definitely have to go to visit again one day.
