PARIS: It’s a dream destination for millions of people. It’s certainly been a dream of mine since I was a little girl. Growing up with CD-ROMS of Learning French in grade school, I have no idea why I’ve always been fascinated by the city of love. I took up French 1 with my sister Maxx in college and I went on to study French 2 on my own (she had already taken German for her first foreign language class). I’m always so proud to say the longest French sentence I know whenever I get the chance to do so: Qu’est ce que vous fais dans la vie? (What do you do in life?) hahaha. Anyway, I’m currently in our Venice hotel room, waiting to meet with Jim’s family as our Honeymoon comes to an end, and we start celebrate mommy Bing’s 60th birthday on a week-long Mediterranean cruise!
I’ve got about 15 minutes to blog so I don’t want to get in too deep. I’ve taken so many photos from our trip and I think I’ll have to spread it out into different posts! So for now: a visual diary of our trip from Manila to our first destination, Paris!!
Our flight was at 2:30pm last Saturday and we landed in Singapore at around 6:45pm. We had a 5-hour layover before our flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
We didn’t like any of the games, so you know what we did? We took a shower. Separately, of course. Ano ba.?
Since it was my first trip oustide of Asia, I’ve never had a plane ride longer than 5 hours. I’ve always been a kuripot traveler — I don’t believe in business- or first-class plane rides, or super expensive hotels. I like spending more on experiences – kaya kong tiisin ang economy class kahit matagal pa yan. But who am I to say I can take a super cramped seat if I haven’t really been on a long plane ride, right? So I’ve been a bit “UGH ANG ARTE” at the thought of anything higher than economy class, but that quickly changed when we got to our premium economy seats on Lufthansa Airlines.
It was pure comfort hihihi we slept like babies the whole flight.
We arrived to Frankfurt with just around 50 minutes to catch our connecting flight to Paris. I thought it would be like our Singapore layover where we didn’t have to go through immigration given that it was a connecting flight. But it was so crazy when we got to Frankfurt, we were panicking because we thought we wouldn’t make it!
OKAY THAT’S IT!! Have to go on a Gondola ride now!!!:):) Will write more this week!!
