One of my New Year’s Resolution’s for 2017 was to travel abroad for the first time. And you guessed it… I did! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen I actually went to Paris about a month ago lol. Needless to say this post has been a long time coming. But with assignments, revision and exams – uni life got in the way. In fact I still have those things to do but am writing this in procrastination oops.
I figured it would be easier to split the trip into days rather than writing one huuuuge photo heavy blog post. So look out for days two and three to come in the next few days!
So here’s day one
My sister and I began the day taking a train from Guildford to London. Once we got to London we grabbed a quick Starbucks – as you do – before checking into the London St Pancras International Eurostar to Paris Gare du Nord. And me being keen made sure to get my passport stamped much to the passport checkers amusement haha. 3 hours later we were in Paris!
We met our lovely Airbnb host, Jennifer, and made our way to the beaut apartment in Neuilly-sur-Seine picking up a baguette and eclairs on the way. Yuuum. After dumping our bags and taking an hour long rest, we met up with our friend Megan (who lives in Paris). We decided our first stop from the metro would be to visit the Arc de Triomphe. We climbed all the way to the top and saw spectacular views of the city. Which is huge btw and we managed to travel all over by the end of the trip!
Starving hungry, our legs dead from the spiraling staircase in the Arc we went to Pizza Sant’antonio on Megan’s recommendation. And boooooy – this pizza was life-changing! Think bacon, onions, looooots of cheese, a fresh charred base all topped with a perfect egg. This is what dreams are made of. I didn’t expect to go to Paris and eat the best pizza of my life, but c’est la vie!
Feeling full and sleepy we made our way back to the apartment excited for the tomorrow! (Which will be up here in the next few days so don’t forget to check back!)
But for now enjoy day one’s photographs below:
