Explore Paris in 5 Hours: Places You Can See In Paris

Exploring Paris in 5 hours

Paris has been topping my European bucket list for the longest time. As soon as I received my British passport, I booked a day trip to Paris.

2017 started off with an adventure and it doesn’t seem to be stopping.  I never would have guessed that my dream of visiting Paris would come true. This year has truly been magical and I am so grateful for everything that has happened. What are you most grateful for this year?

Patience does pay off and hard work does bear fruit. 

I was travelling with my friend and this being a day trip, we booked the 5:40 Eurostar to Paris Gare du Nord. Paris greeted us with rape seed fields,  graffiti walls and cold weather.

My first trip to Paris was nothing less than an adventure. From getting lost for 3 hours (we had reached our destination but due to language barrier thought we had to get another train and that took us away from the main city) to getting soaked in rain, including my camera. But, even after losing valuable time, we still managed to fit in a lot of places.

How To Boost Your Confidence | Tips You Need To Try Out Now

Train your mind to BELIEVE IN YOURSELFCONFIDENCE plays a huge role in how we live our lives. It either makes us or breaks us.

Summer is finally here (who’s excited?) and it’s almost Easter. Some of you girls might be struggling with the choice of outfits to wear because ‘YOU’ feel you don’t have the body to carry it. On the other hand, there are some who may not have the ‘particular body” but they do have the confidence, so they are able to pull off that outfit with ease.

Some of us might skip events because you think no one will find you interesting enough to talk to you. I’ve done it in the past and still do. I’ve missed out on some really cool networking events only because my confidence level was very low.

These are some of the tips that has helped me shape my confidence over the years and I want you to try them.

  • Train your Mind to say I CAN
Our mind tricks us to believe that we are not worthy enough of accomplishing our dreams. This impacts hugely our confidence and stops us from trying new things and meeting new people. Every-time your mind says; you cannot, confront it with ‘I CAN  and I will’ and go out and prove it. This way, you’re slowly training your mind to believe that YOU CAN achieve any goal.

Day Trip To Dover Castle From London | Tips That Will Actually Help You

Views from Dover Castle

When the curiosity to see a new place ended up into a day trip adventure to ‘Dover Castle’.

The journey from London St Pancras to Dover Priority Station took about 1 hour 35 minutes and costs us £79.80 (2x return tickets on javelin at any time). Once at the Station, the steep walk to Dover Castle is about 15-20 minutes. There’s also a bus service available but we decided to walk to the castle.

We were clueless how huge this castle was and that, we were gonna end up spending the whole day here. My impromptu adventure to Dover Castle meant I wasn’t prepared for this trip and there’s few things I discovered the hard way.
