Paris…a few hints…

My top 10 hints and tips…

  1. Pre-book your attraction tickets and/or city pass!
    – getting to the Notre Dame Cathedral and not being able to go up the tower is a bit of a disappointment.
  2. Get ‘skip the queue’ tickets wherever possible!
    – if you’re only there for a weekend, why waste hours queuing?!
  3. Getting your caricature done is so not worth the money!
    – if you do, make sure you know the price before the artist proceeds.
  4. Go see the Eiffel Tower twinkle at night!
    – this happened spontaneously, and I’m so glad it did.
  5. Most people will speak to you in English!
    – I guess I must look English…!?
  6. It’s still good to know a little French!
    – Parlez-vous anglais?/do you speak English?  does not count when trying to navigate the metro system!…Besides, they appreciate the effort!
  7. Use public transport!
    – it may look close together on the map, but it is not!
  8. Make sure you bag is closed properly!
    – getting lousy on the security of your items, in any city, is just silly.
  9. Street food is amazing!
    – you can eat and walk, getting more of your time…and that paella being served by the Eiffel Tower tastes as good as it smells!
  10. You won’t get 5 minutes peace!
    – men seem to flock towards you…they must like English women, either that or we’re known to be floozies!…I hope its not the latter!! 

Love xo
