Airport Diaries! #1


Well I’m here – I made it. As I write this I’m sitting in Birmingham Airport departure lounge getting ready to board my flight in about… 45 minutes, just enough time for a loo stop (that’s right bodily functions update!), to grab a bite to eat and have a little chat with you.

At this point can I just raise the question of eat-in prices of food and airport cafes? Seriously?!

On only 3 hours sleep I’m surprisingly chipper so as soon as I land I’ll be hitting the streets and getting my bearings.

…Oh hold on, I’ve not told you where I’m going yet! Mind you if you’ve seen any of my last few posts, or follow me on twitter you might have already cottoned on (I haven’t stopped going on about it!)

OK start again – I’m going to Paris!

A 4am start followed by a 3 ½ hour train, and a 2 1/5 hour flight and voila, in Paris I shall be.

I’ve only got 48 hours here and then I’m off to Poitier to stay with family – more on that soon.

I’ve only ever been to Paris as a youngster so as I was in the country I decided to take advantage of the locale, and hit up Paris on the way. As I’m not going to be there for long I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to try and brave the metro in a hopes to travel further and see more of the big sites, or instead take it in my stride quite literally, and stroll the streets taking in the local vibe. I’ll definitely see less of the sites that way but I might get a much better feel for Parisian life…

…decisions, decisions…

Well anyway, so far everything has gone smoothly so fingers crossed it stays that way!.

While I’ve still got the time I think I’m going to get the phrase book out and practice my French in fear I might get lost on the way to the hotel!

By the time you read this I’ll already be on my way to my next destination, but I’ll be sure to let you know all about my Paris adventures.

Until then,

Bye for now!

p.s. Have you been to Paris? What are your best (or worst!) memories? Let me know in the comments.

  3. Oooh sounds exciting! I've only been to Paris once, a few years back. It was quite nice, despite the metro smelling kind of terrible.
