Last weekend we decided it was a good idea to randomly book a little vacation – to Paris! 🙂
It wasn’t exactly a surprise as we have been thinking of going to Paris for some time. We have travelled around France and Paris before, but somehow we had never managed to head up to the pinnacle of the Eiffel Tower. This time was to be our time!!!
We boarded the Eurostar from London St. Pancras – direct to Paris Gard de Nord! It was so convenient and fast, travelling at 186mph at its fastest ad under the English Channel for a good 26 miles… or so 🙂
We decided to stay in a really cool, small hotel called Hotel Eden. It was so great, based in an old Parisian town house – with the most amazing lighting system ever. We are both a little tech geeky and we loved the projector lights that headed onto the beds! So cool! If you ever heading to Paris, have a little look at the hotel and check it out on TripAdvisor 🙂
After sending our days eating creme Brûlée…why is french creme brûlée always taste the best, we headed to the Eiffel Tower. One tip girls and guys, if you want to get to the top, definitely book your tickets in advance… We forgot and had to queue for easily an hour! But our enthusiasm held and witnessed the most breathtaking views of Paris we have ever seen! Perfect!
We decided to take a pair of our new Sherpa Lined Leather Boohoo boots, which Lloyd wore.. they are the best leather boots ever! Just look how much walking we did, they were filled with dust after a walk of nearly 7 miles! The before and after pics are below! 🙂
Take a look at some of our pics, hopefully we will be heading back very soon, so if you have advice on where we should go, do drop us a message! 🙂
