Are you up for
CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR EVE IN PARIS
Hi guys! I Hope that all of you had a great year ending and a wonderful beginning of 2018.
regent’s garden hotel
i would like to share with you my end of the year experience in paris… city of lights!
after landing and checking in the beautiful boutique hotel “regent’s garden” we began our tour in “arc de triomphe” like a good tourists, we had a perfect sunny day for our advantage so we walked on the champs Élysées Avenue until we found ourselves at galerie Lafayette, the biggest brands mall in paris, The special Christmas design were breathtaking with a 5 floor special edition candy colors Christmas tree. We did some shopping but there were no longer sales after boxing day was done.
A dream coming true
Disneyland hotel will be the first thing to see when you come from the train station diraction
second day was making a dream come true for my love (aviv) and i, we went to Disneyland, the happiest place on earth!
Getting there by train will take you a 50 min ride and 7.60€ Per person, we took the train from charles de Gaulle station to chessy/ porc disneyland station with the red A line, it’s very simple and you can always ask the hotel concierges for maps and guidance, you can easily make it work!
too bad you cant take the weather with you sometimes
this time we weren’t so lucky with the whether, it was rainy windy and just freezing in general, but we had to make the best out of it…
so we paid 99 euro for each person and we were inside Disneyland! What a joy
from “pirates of the Caribbean” to “the twilight zone”, we tried every attraction that was waterproof and available to us but we still finished the day water soaked.
Anyway we were so happy and grateful for being able to have this existing experiences.
the day before new year’s eve
Saturday before New Year’s was a great day for sight seeing of classic Paris, walking around the eiffle tower and the Christmas market Next to it made us dream we’re in a romantic movie.
Unfortunately rain came earlier then we expected and woke us up, we used the opportunity to jump on a hop on hop off bus. watching the breathtaking beauty “notre dame” cathedral from the Cousy bus and jumping down in the louvre station heading to the magnificent louvre museum.
For those into arts
If you’re into world arts and historic monuments like I do, this is the perfect place for you! the portrait of mona lisa, Aphrodite statue ( venus de milo) and so so many more!
Waiting in line took us about 30 min, but trust me, louvre museum is not something that you want to miss because of line waiting, if you don’t want to wait you can always buy tickets directly from the officel website :
But remember, you must book the tickets at least hour or two ahead.
The louvre is the largest arts museum in the world, witch also means you’ll need to save a lot of power and time for it! If only I could have the time I would spend at least 2 full days inside But I couldn’t so we spend 3:30 hours to see only one out of 4 big floors of this museum witch included some Italian, French, Greek, Egyptian and English arts.
it’s definitely a memory that I will cherish forever, but I wish I could have more time and energy to view the high floors of this spectacular building , i can definitely say this is a “must see again” on my next trip to Paris.
Just walking in NYC is a something special…
the one michelin restaurant run by the chef keisuke yamagishi is a modern minimalist french cuisine that served us a special 7 dishes that the chef created especially for the New Years eve.
The menu included elegant dishes such as scallops with truffle topping, steamed fish wrapped with leaves and many more, even the chocolate desert came with unbelievably interesting and tasty truffle ice cream! the food was sophisticated intelligent and left us with a taste for more, the staff were extraordinarily polite and welcoming. we actually felt ,in the hours we spent there, like genuine royalty.
