CITY OF ROMANCE
The beautiful capital of France is filled with wonders of excitement that will keep you on your feet, I say this because by the end, I was baffled that I didn’t have blisters… I promise that will be the last time I mention body fluids.
It was my turn for a surprise date; I really had no clue what I was doing, which meant that this trip wasn’t perfect but for all the right reasons. Whilst I had frequently visited Paris as a youth, my adult experience of the place was missing. It worked for both of us, just around the corner from a student finance loan (thank you taxpayers) and exactly after university hand ins. A celebration and a well needed trip.
I haven’t felt as comfortable as I did in Châtelet for a long time. There’s something about that street filled with flowing conversation that just lifts your spirits up. The company could not be better as well as she started to get fed up of my s***, which I found absolutely hilarious.
With my minimal navigation skills, this trip became one of my favourites. Your eyes are filled with sights you did not expect to see.The bridge over the river with the Eiffel Tower peeking behind you from a far distance, the bizarre underground shopping, which Paris is so famous for. We could have stayed there forever because there was so much we did not get around to.
There were slight hiccups and moments of confusion which, at the time ruined it for us. It was only later to realise that were it not for this, the trip would not have been the same. Go out there and enjoy yourself whilst you’re still young.
