At the weekend, Mr P and I are off to Paris for the day.
|Oh, to see a sight like this!|
We leave on the first train out of London St Pancras and return on the last train back from Gare du Nord.
We have visited this great city together twice already.
In the summer of 2000 we escaped London and holiday jobs for a few days to enjoy our first holiday together. For 18 year old me, it was a very romantic trip.
In 2007 - for my Dad's 60th birthday present - we bought tickets to be the first members of the public to leave for Paris from the new St Pancras International. However while we had a fun-filled trip, the train didn't actually leave the station until 3pm and there was only time to cross the road outside the Gare du Nord and have an amazing celebratory meal, before crossing back over the road and getting the last train home.
As Mr P and I have seen quite a bit of the city and visited the key sights and museums, on this short visit, we are looking forward to relaxing and and filling the day wandering the streets, absorbing the smells, sounds and views of the city, and as always, filling our stomachs with delicious food.
A visit to the original Ladurée shop is at the top of my list and Mr P suggested that if the weather is good, we should have a quick visit to the Eiffel Tower as it completes any visit to the city.
But being the fonts of all knowledge about nice things, I was hoping that you could suggest some lovely things to do in Paris in a day.
Thinking caps on, please! x
