near the middle of my trip, nicola & i packed our bags & took the eurostar for five days in paris! we used air bnb & rented a room in a flat. if you are ever traveling & want to experience somewhere more like a local (& stay at an amazing place!) i would recommend using air bnb. also if you do, email me & i can send you info (i get credit if you sign up through me!).
when we arrived & after finding our flat, we stopped at a nearby cafe to relax & enjoy that we were actually in paris.
since we arrived in the afternoon, we didn't want any of the day to go to waste! so we planned out what lines to take on the metro to get to the eiffel tower & headed out on the treasure hunt. when we got to the eiffel tower, it was a m a z i n g ! i have rarely experienced such a rush like i did when i saw it light up at night. it was brilliant.
we then wondered the streets of paris, going to the little shops & grabbed a bite to eat at a small italian restaurant.
