Welcome to Paris; where the magic happen!
chasing the sunset
view of paris – eiffel tower is to the right
the buildings to the right is where La Defence is – where my university is
okay superman – we understand you’re still alive
Sacré Coeur Basilica – this is where you get the view of the whole city
it’s so tall comparing to rest of the city
casual sunset from my balcony
Arc de Triomphe – this is how you know you’ve arrived at the Champs Elysées. tip: go to the top and go see the eiffel tower
I have to admit that I added the french keyboard to my computer to be able to add those accents ééé – fancy that!
So far we’ve been lucky to have beautiful weather that allows us to look at the sunset every night, read a book on the balcony, go outside for a stroll in the city, drink wine in the parks, enjoy a picnic, and get us mentally ready for the rain that we are so used to back in Vancouver.
I will tell you the truth, there is one thing I cannot stand about Paris but that we are blessed to have in Vancouver. The worst part is that this is vital to survive, not sure a human being can do without it – water.
The tap water in Paris is simply awful, you drink it and it just feels heavy in your stomach.
The key to survival is to purchase a 6-pack of 1.5L water bottles that cost 1 euro – phew thank god for elevators because living on the 6th floor isn’t easy. But WOW, the environment is hating me and I feel so guilty.
I will continue posting about my travels and how to survive in Paris! xo
