Every year I travel to mon belle Paris. Not for a long time, just for a couple of days and sometimes just for one day. I go by train (Thalys), bustour or by car. The reason why I go so often to Paris is because of the beautystore Sephora, which is not in the Netherlands. You may think “But you can order the things online”, but the actual main reason is I’m in love with the Eiffeltower, I even have a tattoo of the Eiffeltower on my arm.
MY FIRST TIME IN PARIS
with little ‘X’, that’s the first letter of my name, the Eiffeltower also looks like lace and I’m crazy about lace.
I sat there on a bench in the Park, there were a lot of people sitting on the grace, some of them were picnicking, lots of couples who just got engaged and drinking some champagne. Sometimes staring at the Eiffeltower, thinking about life. Dreaming about the romances in Paris, fantasizing about a life of a Parisians, wondering how they live, work, love and how they’re having fun.
That was the first time I fell in love with Paris.
Le Café Gustave – I celebrated my 25th birthday in Paris. We went for a whole weekend, and we stayed in an Ibis-hotel. I had my birthdaydinner at Le Café Gustave, 23 Avenue de la Bourdonnais, right next to the Eiffeltower. We eat the most best salmon and best spareribs ever! Le Café Gustave is named after the French civil-engineer who built the Eiffel Tower, Gustave Eiffel. Since the birthday I go back to this café everytime when I’m in Paris. To drink some lovely cocktails, order crepe with Nutella or eat the amazing Salmon (with pesto).
Les Ombres – February 2017 I went to the magical restaurant Les Ombres. You have the make a reservation if you want to go there. In the summer you can go on the terrace for only some drinks, but in the other seasons you can only have dinner there. We paid €100,- per person for 4 courses and a bottles of wine, but you can sit there the whole evening. The thing about this restaurant is the view. The view is like the view from a room in the Shangri-La Hotel. You have to go there if you really love the Eiffel Tower. The food was tasty and the service was great! We wished in the reservation a table with the best view of the Eiffel Tower and we got it. We had nothing to celebrate, we just want to eat very exclusive.
Notre Dame – On that weekend I went to the Notre Dame for the first time. I always loved the Disney-movie. Well, there are a lot of gypsies, but nothing like Esmeralda hahaha, The gypsies now want you to sign something, I was walking there with my Primark-clothing and accessories, but it looked fashionable, so a gypsy notice that I wouldn’t sign a thing so she just beg me for some money. The church is free entrance, it’s magical. You can go to the top and see the seine, the Eiffeltower and the church from inside.
