So after month of planning and sneaking around, me and my brother and sisters managed to pull off the best surprise of all, for my Mum’s 60th birthday we told her that we had all planned and organised for her to go to Paris for her birthday with my Dad…little did she know that we had also sneakily planned to get the Eurostar down the day after and surprise her on the morning of her big day!
We had 2 fantastic days exploring the delights that Paris has to offer, we stayed in an Air B&B just off the beautiful pedestrian street in Montorgueil. It is a stunning area of Paris, it is central but away from the touristy areas and full of cobbled streets and alley ways lined with bistros, cafes, bakeries and stores selling cheese, wine and flowers. It is apparently one of the famous places in Paris where Parisians go to drink after work.
We walked around Paris all day until I thought my feet were going to fall off, we had champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower, enormas croissants for breakfast, Croque-monsieur for lunch and one of the best tiramisu I have ever had for dessert. It was a beautiful winters day which the most pinkest of sunsets at night. On day 2 we explored some more but there was one thing I had to do before getting the Eurostar back to London….go shopping!
