Travel DIARIES : Dreamland PARIS (part 1)

Travel has always been my passion. I always wanted to explore more places and I want to document them so I can look back and cherish the happy moments. I am starting a new series of travel posts which will be a little detailed. They wont be just a set of photos. I'll do my best to let you know what these places are. So let me present to you my travel diary about the beautiful "Dreamland Paris"

I always wanted to goto PARIS. It was one of my dream destinations and we were planning on it since a year. Finally two months in advance we booked a trip for 3 days to Paris through Star Tours for the Easter weekend . It was a Couch trip from LONDON to PARIS which means you need to cross the English channel by a ferry(which carries coaches, buses and other vehicles). Then you reach Calais (french border) and from Calais leave to Paris.

It was my first time on a ferry. Frankly speaking I felt extremely sea sick and was almost about to through up. I really felt super dizzy and wanted to get off ASAP. But it was just a 90mins ride and you can also get comfortable by having some drinks and snacks at the restaurants and cafes in the ferry. You also get to shop there. People wanna go shopping even on sea guys. That's not too surprising. Is it?

   On Day 1 of our trip we almost travelled all day long which was a bit hectic and tiring as well. But when your fellow travellers+tour manager are oh so entertaining and funny, you don't mind. 

Leaving at 6 in the morning and reaching around 3-ish in the noon. I mean its a long time but we are going to another country after all. I knew, it was gonna be worth it.


This is the port of DOVER(UK border) where we had to catch the ferry from

FERRY BOATS

When we reached PARIS the first sight of the "Eiffel Tower" I saw was this from our couch. I was in a complete awwww!!!! 

Awwww...! Stunning beauty :)

On arrival we were taken for a scenic boat cruise along the river seine, entirely glass fitted with a terrace. I really enjoyed an hour tour that follows the river pasting famous monuments Eiffel tower, Notre dame cathedral as well as many landmarks and ornate bridges. 

 Paris sightseeing cruise was really fun and interesting.

Lovely Architecture...








and again.. Love the sight! :) 

Day 1 was so exhausting we all wanted to go and relax. After our dinner at an Indian restaurant we went straight to the hotel. 

My travel diaries on Paris continues.. DAY 2, DAY 3 will be in my next post. So watch out for this place..

Until next time..
