One early early morning Yusra & I took the Eurostar to Paris for a few days on a mini break. It is always great to get away from the monotony of the week long routine. Even better with great company!

This year I have resolved to do more travelling, as last year I did not travel much. I always tend to overlook travelling to places nearby, as parts of Europe can feel a bit familiar to the UK. I usually love experiencing more of a distant culture, time travelling in my imagination through historical events, in grand ruins. The colours, fragrance, lingo, cuisine, the people. It all lends an otherwoldlyness I suppose! A surreal existence, that piqeus the mind, and inspires my soul. I am getting a bit carried away here, do excuse me 🙂

Anyway, what I am trying to say is that Paris with it’s beautiful architecture woke up my love of history. If you have been to Paris, you will know what I mean 🙂

So at 10am the Eurostar, pulled into Paris.  We arrived at Gare Norde Station, and took the Metro to our Hotel. Yusra can read maps (unlike myself), and she speaks French, so that was very handy. I could barely manage a few words haha..my French is a bit better now! We hadn’t pre planned much as we wanted to take it easy and focus on exploring the city on foot. Given the timing of the trip we didn’t do as much as we wanted to, as it was just after the Je Suis Charlie Hebdo Incident. There were a lot of armed policemen patrolling the stations, and other landmarks.

Nontheless, it was a lot of fun exploring the elegant Parisian streets, away from the hectic crowds of tourists. There were quite a few art galleries, and trendy boutique shops in our area. We chanced upon a cute little vintage store called Juliette. Need to go back and explore this place more! 🙂

I really loved the french pastries, and the coffee. I was never one for Crepes, but Yusra managed to change my opinion of them in Paris!  And, we went to Laduree too. Lot’s of choice in there. In terms of how the macaroons taste, I can’t say I am impressed. Because I am not. They look very pretty, & make a great gift. But, the taste isn’t any better than the one’s I got from Paul. Hmm..am I missing something here?

Anyway, the pastries were so good, we got some to take back with us home. And we took some Laduree Macaroons too 🙂 Oh, and I went to Sephora….so much amazingness in there! Wish we had a Sephora in London..

I shall be posting a couple more posts from Paris, so watch this space 🙂

Did you like the pics? What places should I check out next time?
