So, Paris was a whirlwind. A lot happened in the last few days. I shall try to recount it all. Remember to check out the photo gallery page! It started with an interesting travel day on the chunnel train. We were stopped for 3 hours while they dealt with flooding and “trespassers on the tracks”. Eurostar did give us a twix and a glass of water, so that’s nice. We ended up not getting the AirBnB until past 11pm though, and we were all starving. And no one was open. Except this one burger place that literally stayed open specifically for us. It was so nice of them! Our waiter likes to play video games, so if that’s your thing and you ever play a Frenchman named Alexandre, it could be him.
The Paris metro system is almost impossible to traverse smoothly. I don’t like looking like a tourist (more than I already do); I like trying to figure things out on my own without asking too many questions, but holy cow. That was never going to happen on this metro. And it legitimately doesn’t get easier. Now picture five women trying to figure it all out as a group, running around like a small pack with unfolded maps blowing in the breeze. You laughed. I know you did. That was how every day began. And concluded.
I also ate a croissant every day.
