Paris is one of the places outside of America I’ve visited the most.

After my last visit back in November, I’m not sure if that Parisian charm is working on me anymore. You scroll through Instagram and all you see is those pretty images of the Eiffel Tower, macaroons from Ladurée and lots of pastries from the nearby boulangerie. I visited again with a close friend of mine back in January and the cracks began to show…

Thanks to Brexit, the Euro rate is terrible at the moment so this possibly jaded my view of Paris. Everything became a little more bitter, expensive and little more dirty. Whenever I got on the Metro, I thanked my past self for packing hand sanitiser as who knows what I could have touched. Even our hotel was a little on the crusty side, but who am I to complain when it was on a budget and I was there to sleep.

I don’t really know what I’m getting at with this post but sometimes places only needed once, just to get it out of your system. The idea of visiting Paris (If you’re from the UK or nearby) is great in theory, but once you start adding up the cost of food and all the things you want to do – is it worth it if you’re on a budget? I’m not sure.

One thing that is great in Paris is the food. If you’re a foodie like me, it’s worth visiting alone for it. The freshest pastries, the most amazing hot chocolates… I’m tempted to book a flight (or Eurostar) to experience these one more time…

My mixtape cover… ‘Sad and Bouji’…

I don’t know what more I can say about Paris so this post will be short. If you’ve never been go, see it for yourself and don’t be influenced by me.

I don't know what to write here but I like travelling, Nando's and black hair dye. I am slowly compiling my memoirs...and a few musings along the way. ✈️
