So that's it, Paris is over. We made our way early to the coach park via the train for our journey back to London. Its very sad as this has been one of our favorite destinations. There is so much I never write about on these blogs, mostly because it's done on an iPhone. It takes a while to type on the small screen & quite frankly it gets a little frustrating after a while. There is always so much more I want to say but never get it in, but it does give everyone who reads it a taste of what we are experiencing. And as we get older it will always make Jac & myself recall lots of amazing memories that may otherwise fade as we get older. So what did we think of Paris? Well it was a beautiful city. We have taken about 400-500 photos so you will probably get sick of looking at all the beautiful buildings & will skip through some of them. As with all destinations you try to take lots of snaps to recreate what you are seeing but it never quite comes across. There are a lot of beautiful streets & alleyways that unbelievably we didn't take snaps of. Most cafes & restaurants had tables on the streets & it seems like a very social city, with diners doing a lot of people watching. It is a very busy city but at least people generally walk on the right side of the footpath so you're not dodging everyone like in London. I guess being warm weather has made it busy and as such there were long lines at a lot of the attractions. But we have mostly done travel in winter so maybe being off season we have been able to get into sites easily everywhere else. On the other hand it was nice to do travel when we're not freezing our asses off. The transport system here is very good but it does smell, with lots of graffiti. It works fine but not as clean and fresh as the tube in London. Also it doesn't have lifts either, you have quite a lot of stairs to navigate. Even the attractions are all stairs. Really not a good city if you are wheelchair bound. Most of the food is pretty average. I can't believe I'm saying this but London food is actually fresher. There is one exception which is the bakeries. They are everywhere & their goods are lovely and fresh. We only ate bread & croissant's from them but the cakes looked amazing too. You also need to buy alcohol early as you can't get any takeaways after 10pm. But in the city people are always drinking straight from a wine bottle. Not in a bad way, just buying a bottle & sitting on the riverbank or in a park as you don't want to carry a glass around all day. They don't seem to have 24 hour corner stores either. If you need something late at night, well too bad, although you can buy beer in McDonalds which is pretty cool. There isn't really much of a police presence, especially compared to London. Not that we ever really felt unsafe, but maybe to deter things like our pickpockets mates. The people are very lovely too. We only had one or two rude Parisians but the rest were great, not like the stereotypical view we had. They all generally spoke English but it is fun communicating too when you don't understand each other. So we loved Paris. In fact if we had of known how great it was we may have lived here for 6 months, but that's the way it goes. We will definately come back, either soon or when we're much older. So until then we say Merci & au revoir. We shall see you another time Paree.
