for the love of paris – lourve eiffel and the list goes on
June 20, 2011 § Leave a comment
after the torturous 12-hour bus ride from milan, we finally reached paris and the first thing we did was to rush to our amazing apartment that we found on airbnb. a rough recap of what we did for the 7 days in paris:
tue: how to become parisian in one hour
watched how to become parisian in one hour. my second time watching but it was still as funny.
confession to make – we slept the entire day away and went to lourve at night to make ourselves feel a little less guilty. we were “cheated” at the lourve though. there was a guy who approached us and said that he bought one extra ticket for his tour group and asked if we would like to buy his extra ticket. out of goodwill, we did that only to realize that his ticket was timed at 4pm when we were there at 7pm. although the ticket was still good to use for us, we think that the ticket is probably his own and he just sell to us after he finished touring around the lourve ):
thurs: disneyland and eiffel tower
a powerpack day to compensate for wednesday’s laziness. we went to disneyland ( was quite a disappointment though). the entrance ticket was ridiculously expensive – 69 euros per pax. i would have love to take photos with snow white and cinderella but how could i fight with those adorable kids in line???
the lovely eiffel tower
more photos on eiffel will be up soon cos they are in eugene’s cam. the view from eiffel was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. night view of paris is to die for and the iron lady sparkles when night falls. how awesome is that!!
friday: shopping at la fayette gourmet
i love shopping at departmental stores (okay actually i just love shopping anywhere) and la fayette gourmet certainly did not disappoint!
here’s eugene loving the 5kg nutella and i had to stop him from bringing it home.
okay part 2 of paris will be up soon!
