We have just returned from a wonderful couple of days in Paris. These challenges were a great idea. I hadn’t seen Paul for three months so it was so nice to be together in a beautiful city, relaxing and seeing the sights. I was well and truly spoilt as my birthday treat…Eurostar to Paris, collected by a Range Rover Vogue with blacked out windows and chauffeured around Paris for an hour whilst we drank champagne!
We arrived at our hotel, The Royal Monceau, which was designed by Philip Starky. It is truly magnificent. Our room included a bedroom, dressing room, bathroom and lounge…with details and treats to make my heart skip! I enjoyed opening all the little special boxes, checking out the lights and the two wall-size televisions and feeling like a Princess! We spent the rest of the day walking the Champs Élysées, relaxing and enjoying the sun and sights. Dinner was taken in the hotel, cocktails and wine with three courses including asparagus, gambas, beef fillet and a chocolate- heaven dessert!
The next day we hit all the sights…Notre Dame, Louvre, Pompidou Centre, Grand Palace, Little Palace, Jardin de Tuilleres, Eiffel Tour…we walked miles and enjoyed the views. Back to the hotel for a bath….biggest bath I have ever seen!…and to dinner. But that’s for another post!
A lazy start the next day, another gorgeous breakfast fit for a king and then off to Gare du Nord to catch the Eurostar. Premier class this time, with lunch served, before catching the train at Kings Cross to head home. An amazing few days away, I loved living the high life!!
