    Eurotrip 2013: Paris Day 1

    And we left London for Paris!! We arrived at Paris on the 1st of July at 9am. By the time we managed to reach our apartment, it was close to 2pm already. Our apartment was located at Boulogne Billiancourt, which is a posh area. We didn’t know that until our host and a fellow friend living in Paris told us.

    When we first arrived at our apartment, our host’s wife, Catarina, sat us down for half an hour just explaining to us about getting around in Paris. Super nice and dedicated woman! We left the apartment and set forth for our Paris adventure hehe.

    Catarina even gave us free bus tickets!! Anyway, Roy and I realised the locals there RARELY buy bus tickets or pay for their bus trips. So we only bought tickets on the first day, the rest?? FREE RIDES LO.

    While walking to Musee du Lovre, we walked pass River Seine and snapped some photos. You’ll see more of River Seine at the later part of the post.

    Musee du Louvre is where the famous painting of Mona Lisa resides in. We didn’t go in because it was closed and we didn’t see any point to visit the museum. paris1-18

    We chanced upon this cafe randomly and decided to have lunch there….

    THIS WAS THE BEST PIZZA I EVER HAD IN EUROPE. I SWEAR. It was even better than the ones I had in Italy!

    We walked pass River Seine again!! And got our lock from a nearby souvenir store, hehe. There are some people selling locks on the bridge itself but do not buy from them! They’ll always quote higher prices to tourists.

    That was basically how we spent our first day in Paris just roaming around the streets. Actually I just like roaming around and discovering things without having to rush from one destination to another. And since we only had a half a day, we decided to just take our time. 🙂 I really love Paris. The people we met were surprisingly, very humble and nice to us. Prior to my Paris trip, many of my friends who’ve been there shared that they met rude and uncaring people. Most were reluctant to speak English even if they knew the language. It was the complete opposite for me. So keep the faith! There are nice people around!!

    Here I shall end with a video of Roy and me locking our love lock on the bridge of River Seine. I hope to return someday with Roy to look for the love lock. I think ours is located near the 3rd and 4th lampost or rubbish bin HAHAHA. Okay byebye, take care you people!

     

    My next post is schedule to be out in 3 days with a DELICIOUS BRAZILIAN WAXING OFFER FOR YOU PEOPLE. Hehe. WAIT FOR IT!!
