Bonjour! Paris 2017

The long wait is finally over.

We have a one hour layover in Bahrain.

We’re off to Paris, France!🙊✈️

CDG Paris Airport Terminal 2.✌🏻

We arrived in Paris at 6:45am, then went straight to the hotel (Median Paris Congres) for a quick rest.

I personally prefer to take trains, buses or even walk while travelling to different spots. So we took our first metro ride in Paris, and we were so shocked and amazed at the same time with how it looks and works.

PORTE DE CLICHY METRO STATION
It was freezing cold even in the subways.

Our first stop is at the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) located at the summit of the hill of Montmarte.

Inside the Basilica
Since it’s at the summit, you get a pretty good view of Paris.
Also note that to reach the summit you have to climb 270 steps. 😀

Then we went to Moulin Rouge which is a cabaret in Paris.

Then we had lunch at this Italian restaurant – La Rughetta

Next stop is the Arc de Triomphe, one of the most famous monuments in Paris.

It’s actually in the middle of a busy street. 
Closer look 
These are some of the list of French victories engraved under the arches on the inside.
The ceiling with sculpted roses.
This is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I which is located beneath the Arc.

We also went to Pont Alexandre III, which is a very elegant bridge.

You also get a nice view of the Eiffel Tower
Petit Palais
Outside Grand Palais

We also went to the Louvre Museum (the world’s largest museum) to see one side which is the Denon wing (it was so big to see everything in one day). It’s so nice that every Friday it is open til 9:30pm and they also offer free entrance to people under 26 after 6pm (so bad I am no longer included lol).

The Louvre’s most popular attraction – Leonardo Da Vinci’s MONA LISA

It was so cold so decided to warm ourselves with a glass of wine.🍷

Our second day started at the Notre Dame Cathedral (Our Lady of Paris).

It was a very sunny morning.

We’re lucky that there were no queue when we reached the Cathedral.

There was a french mass going on.
And that was the spire at the back.

It’s a beautiful day.
Wandering at the streets of Paris
Nutella Crepe
Champs Elysees – this is where you do some serious shopping lol
Grabbed some lunch at Le Lutece Restaurant

And it’s our time to go to the Eiffel Tower…

It’s a dream come true. I am speechless. ❤

And it’s even more beautiful at night especially when it sparks.
Dinner at Castel Cafe

This is our third and last day in Paris, so we decided to witness the break of dawn at the Eiffel Tower.

It’s just so amazing…
We got to see a different view of the Eiffel Tower, it was very calm and relaxed. 

Aside from the sunrise, another perks of being early is that you get to enjoy the Eiffel Tower for yourself. Less tourists and less crowd (which means NO photobombers lol)

Breakfast at Chez RIBE

We took a one hour metro ride from Central Paris to Disneyland. It was even colder here, and as you can see clouds are getting darker.

Happiest place on Earth. =)
Sleeping beauty castle behind me
And of course my love, Minnie Mouse ❤

Had a big lunch at Cowboy Cookout Barbecue – the grilled pork ribs was to die for. yuuummmmyyy
Stars on parade =)

All throughout our stay at the Disneyland Park it was raining, so most of the rides we took closes after we waited in the queue for 30-40 minutes. It was disappointing but we were compensated with a wonderful experience – it snowed that night. =)

 

And this sums up our Paris trip.

I am still in awe with all the beauty and wonders that I witnessed in Paris.

I had an amazing time and I’ll definitely come back someday. 🙂

Merci beaucoup Paris France!
