Thursday’s Thoughts Volume 1

Paris, France in 6 Hours

Long time no see, friends. Between working the rest of my summer away, moving across the country again, starting back up at school, and dealing with Hurricane Irma, my blog has fallen to the back of my mind. However, I’m back and am going to attempt to post at least once a week.

I want to post about my road trip essentials and finish out my road trip summer 17′ blog series, but I will have to wait until it’s perfect and I have my own photos to use.

So, instead, I thought I’d go ahead and start working on a different series of posts – my London study abroad trip series! I’ll start off with my trip to Paris, which was a crazy adventure that I can’t wait to tell you about.

My friends and I all wanted to explore past England on our trip and we came to agree to Paris as our best bet. However, our trip coordinators did not want us to leave the country and our teachers didn’t either. So, we decided that, to avoid getting into any trouble, we would do Paris in one day. That’s right guys, we left for Paris in the morning and came back to London that same night.

We booked out train tickets through Premium Tours and we chose the Paris special, which included our Eurostar guide, tickets on the Eurostar from King’s Cross to Gare Du Nord and back, and a one hour river cruise on the River Seine (which we chose to forgo due to time constraints). We paid £152.00 in the summer with the student discount deal, which came to $200.

So, here is how our 6 hour adventure in Paris unfolded.
