whatever, whenever, wherever

12 December 2014

Last week, my two friends & I went to Paris for two days! We've all been there before so we thought we'd cut out the sightseeing and spend a day at Disneyland. The other day was spent wandering around and eating (of course)! I apologise in advance for the length of this post...


Accommodation:
We stayed at Hotel Choiseul Opera which we got for a pretty decent price. The hotel is in a great location and there are loads of Metro stations within a 10minute walk. We got it for the same price as hotels that were further out. We didn't actually realise what a great location it was in until we actually got there. It was close to Gare du Nord and there was a direct train to Disneyland from Auber (metro), which was a short walk away. The hotel itself was small but our room was the perfect size for the 3 of us. It was clean, cozy &... noisy (but we all slept like babies haha). I’d defo stay here again & would recommend it for a short stay in Paris. 

Activities:
As soon as we arrived we dropped our bags off at the hotel and headed straight for Disneyland Paris. None of us were too fussed about the rides, we just loved being there! We did go on a few rides though, my fav was Space Mountain: Mission 2. I fell in love with the Tsum Tsum plushies and had to get myself a Mickey one. 
After we got back and had dinner, we just walked to the Louvre and to Galeries Lafayette to see the lights. We did plan to go up the Eiffel Tower but were just too tired and cold!
The next day, we went back to Galeries Lafayette to go up the terrace and to also see the humongous upside down Christmas tree. Whilst we were there, we grabbed some breakfast before it was time to check out of the hotel. We spent the rest of the day browsing around, eating and made a quick trip to Trocadero. We made one  last trip back to the terrace at Galeries Lafayette to see the view at night. We then rushed back to the hotel to pick up our bags & took an Uber to the train station to go home. I have been loving Uber btw, I’ve taken 3 journeys with them now & I defo recommend the app. Use my promo code (julieh664) & get your first ride (under £10) for free!

Food:
Giant hot dogs at Casey’s Corner, Disneyland Paris
Korean dinner at Seoul Opera 
Eclairs at L’eclair de Genie (THE BEST eclairs, ever!)
Sweet treats at Sadaharu Aoki 
French lunch at Cafe du Cadran (cheap and cheerful)
Banh Mi at Thieng Heng 


So we didn’t get up to much whilst we were there but I had such a good time with the girls. It’s a lovely city to be in during the Christmas season. It was absolutely freezing though & I actually wore all the clothes I had with me on the second day! 

Will you be going on a winter getaway?
