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.

What Have I Done With My Life?

What Have I Done With My Life? is a question we all have asked ourselves at some point in our lives and probably failed to answer it.

As I grow older I’ve stopped enjoying birthdays because everybody wants to know when I’m getting married….eye rolls. (Try to imagine this but don’t get carried away lol; I’m an asian girl, 31 years old, eldest of the siblings and my brothers have girlfriends and are ready to tie the knot.)

However,  in the last 2 years, I’ve started enjoying my birthday all over again (the pressure to get married still lingers but I’m trying to look pass that). I try to console myself by thinking that age is just a number.

Attending “Live The Adventure #LTASummit”- Was it the right decision?

Attending #LTASummit with Louis Cole

Last year, @funforlouis announced that the Live The Adventure Club was organising a travel summit for like minded explorers to achieve their biggest travel dreams. 

I’ve always wanted to travel and explore new places since I was a kid and this passion keeps getting stronger and stronger as I age. 

When the tickets went on sale, I purchased without blinking my eye lids. I was so excited to have scored the tickets but then reality kicked in? 

I’m not a you-tuber neither have I travelled much compared to people attending the #LTASummit. You can imagine how petrified I was (anxiety levels went straight to 200). I was overthinking to a point where I had made up my mind of skipping the event. The thought of me being the only one at the summit without a channel made me sick (not forgetting that I haven’t even explored my backyard let alone travelled the world).

After contemplating for the longest time, I took the plunge. I grabbed my bags and embarked on the Live The Adventure journey.
