Okay, I’m a bit late on my New Years post but better late than never right? I’ve been back at work for a couple of days now but my mind is still on vacation mode. I’m already excited for the weekend! Anywayyy, the start of year has already been pretty hectic. I haven’t had much time to really think about my goals for the new year or even reflect on 2016, but I’ve finallyyy had some time to breathe and write.
I was so sad to leave Paris but very very excited that we were heading to Venice! We were up pretty early for our train ride and thankfully the train station was just walking distance from our apartment. Unfortunately when we got there, we had trouble finding our way, there weren’t many people around to ask for directions! We did eventually find our way. But my random tip for everyone is that if you’re not familiar with the place you’re going to be sure to leave earlier than usually so you don’t miss your train/flight!
I did a London Bucketlist a few weeks back so I decided to do one for Paris as well! I’ve been wanting to go for years and years and years, and finally, back in April my family and I spent a few days there. It was just a couple of days into Spring and it was really cold, with some days hitting roughly 2 degrees Celsius! We weren’t prepared “clothes-wise” but we made do with the clothes we had, layered and layered up, and had an amazing few days in one of the beautiful cities in the world!
Read on to see all the things I got to check off my Paris bucketlist! You can also check out my other Paris blogs here and here.
DREAM. COME. TRUE.
Yesssss, finally made it!!! Can’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting to visit Paris and the Eiffel Tower!!! ♥
My family and I left London’s St. Pancreas International Train Station at around 9:20 in the morning. It was our first time on the Euro Star and we were heading to Paris so naturally I was pretty excited! Our train tickets were 45 pounds for adults and 43 pounds for youth (aged 12 to 25). It was just a short train ride, in less than 3 hours we were in Paris’ Gare Du Nord station. Arriving at around 1 pm, we took another train to Gare De Lyon station.
It’s a beautiful afternoon and I’m sitting on my bed looking outside at the sun, quietly reminiscing the 2 degrees Celsius London weather we had when we were there last March. It was a dream come true and I got to check off so many things on my bucket list! So just to cap off my London series here they are:
