Day 1: We made it to Paris!

September 02, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

10:20am flight from Cardiff to Paris
12:40pm arrival to Paris

Stuck on the tarmac cause our bus broke down and then a 90 minutes trek to the hotel.

But that doesn't negate the fact that we are meeting friends in Paris and to our delight, Hima meets us at our hotel with a bunch of American snacks :)

We pick Keval up at his conference and rush to Palace of Versailles since we were a bit behind schedule.

I'm not sure what I expected the Palace to be, but it wasn't. It just wasn't as amazing as I expected, nor as grand on the inside, but some of the rooms were beautiful and the hall of mirrors was neat to see.

The grounds unfortunately closed early today, so we weren't able to wander around much. We didn't fret too much as we were coming back for the evening lights and fountain show... Or so we thought.

After grabbing a quick dinner, we head back to the Palace and wait around only to find out the tickets we bought were for the day show. If the night show tickets weren't €28 a piece, we probably would have considered paying. But that's a steep price for a couple lights and fireworks. 

So... We head back to Hima and Keval's hotel which has a lovely outdoor bar and enjoy the company and a drink before bed. Keval ordered a savory drink which was delivered in a red pepper, and we all had a good laugh about that..

Kevin and I walk back to our hotel taking a slight detour to see the 11pm sparkle ❤️

Tomorrow we have a jam packed day, so it was straight to bed after tthat.
