How are you guys doing today? I am doing okay. I just came back than a day trip to Paris which actually sounds a lot more glamorous than it is. Therefor the quote above. It was not a bad day but a really short day but fortunately for me, I will be back in Paris for an exciting project very very soon and I can not wait!
Yesterday, late night I received a call if I was able to come to Paris for the day to attend a meeting for an exciting project that I can’t say too much about at the moment.
Of course I said yes, ’cause let’s be honest, who in his or her right mind will turn down Paris, even though it will be just for a few hours. As I am living in Holland currently a flight to Paris is less than an hour and with the Thalys ( the special train connection between Holland and France) you can reach Paris within 3 hours. For me it is more convenient to go with the train because it is about an hour from my place to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and with the check in time and all it will be actually longer than just catching the train and I must say, I love train rides !
When I arrived in Paris I still had bout an hour to kill before my meeting. I immediately went to the Eiffel Tower because yes, I am geeky like that to snap a pic. Unfortunately it was still during the sunrise and I only had my iPhone 4 with me that was fully charged, the iPhone 5 ran out of battery since I was busy with emails during the train ride. The camera of my iPhone 4 is really damaged so I did not get a great shot 😦 but you can still see the pic here at my Instagram!
After strolling down the Eiffel Tower it was time to go to my meeting. I am soooooo excited about this project, I can tell you more about this in September !
After my meeting I had 1,5 hours before catching the train back and since my iPhone 5 was fully loaded now I went back to the Eiffel Tower to snap a pic.
I do not know what it is but I just love the Eiffel Tower. I think it is a combination of my love for architecture, Paris and romance.
I wonder what the Eiffel Tower would tell us if it was able to talk. All the amounts of lovey dovey people that come and visit her every day of every year. The amounts of wedding proposals that she has seen so far. Yes, in my opinion the Eiffel Tower is a ‘she’. Sometimes I wish she could talk and tell us all the wonderful things that she has witnessed through out the years. I know that I could listen to her for hours and hours.
After snapping my pic I went to La Durée to buy some macarons. Yes Friends, it is true what they say, La Durée does have the best macarons ever. And oh my, the building is so beautiful.
All these wonderful macarons made my heart skip a beat. I felt like a fat girl in a candy store. I wanted to take them all. They taste so yummy but they are also so beautifully colored, don’t you think? They look so jummy and vibrant !
I purchased a few for my train ride back home and I am almost embarrassed to say that I finished them in the train before the train actually moved. Yes, apparently I am that girl. haha. But I am owning it. They were absolutely worth it.
