Following the previous post, on a very strict schedule we took the bus in the evening from Brussels to Paris. The distance from our apartment to the bus station is not that far too. We just walked there; again to reduce cost. haha. After we have arrived, we need to like check-in*like at the airport. They checked our passport and they even put a sticker-label at our luggage! The journey to France is like 4 to 5 hours. Along the journey, we enjoyed the beautiful scenery of kampong-very lapang-like. We arrived around that noon. The bus station is connected with subway metro so it was very easy to navigate from the station to our apartment. The subway line is very confusing. Like the KL-Valley integrated line that we have in Malaysia believe me it is not confusing at all. What's witth the language and the writing. However, I have received the exact location to whereabout of the apartment whose name waas Bruno. Although there have been some confusion with finding the house luckily we managed it well. The apartment was more like a studio apartment. It only has one bedroom-one toilet-one living hall which is connected with the very mini kitchen haha. But it has all the things that are needed for a comfortable house. After settling down like for a few minutes, we went straight out to see le beautiful Paris~
We took the subway because it's easier to move around. The attractions in Paris is really near to each other so there hasn't been a problem at all. So the first destination is of course the gem of Paris; Le Eiffel Tower. I could almost screamed when I saw the tower from afar.
*dalam train haha gigih
The Eiffel Tower stood majestically there. The closer that I got there the more amused I was. It was build of steel*I think soo. Haha not quite sure. You can go all the way to the top of the tower and eat there. They ffer some package I don't know. But we didm't go. It was expensive for me plus we are there to see the tower not the surroundings keke padahal mmg sbb mahal. I dont quite remember but maybe around 20-40 Euro? This is just the range sbb mmg betoi2 xingat. Tapi kalau nak jugak naik rajin2la tgok kat website ada offer. Tak ingat website tu nama apa tp dia mcm Groupon la. So there we were soaking in the beauty of the tower. Yeke beauty? hihi.
My advice bila nk beli souvenir. Xpayah beli kat kedai depa tu mahai. P ja dok tang tu nnt akan ada pakhitam2 mai dan juai secara berbundle2. Kalau pandai tawaq dapat murah gilaaa. Boleh jadi hampa dpt berlambak kat kedai souvenir tu boleh dpt satu ja. Padahai sama ja made in china jugak. Buat2 juai mahai skit mesti depa gelabah dan bagi murah. haha. Sbb depa ni juai illegally kat situ. Bila polis mai serbu depa pakat lari. Mana yg got lucky tu good la tp yg tertangkap tu mmg kena tangkap la.
My beloved :D
My beloved lagi satu xleh boh tang ni haha. After quite a while, we moved to the next destination. Tak plan pon yg ni tp tiba2 depa mcm rasa nk naik cruise. So kita layanlaaa. Lagipun depa tanggung hihi :P
Again x ingat harga cruise tapi xmahai sangat rasanya maybe around 10-20 Euro? MAYBE. hehe. This cruise took us all along the river. From there you can actually see everything. Okay xdkla nmpk semua mcm ha nampak dia seketoi mcm tu. Contohnya mcm sebelah kanan ada Eiffel Tower then depan sikit lagi ada Notre Dame tu then Love Bridge bila dia pusing nampak plak Museum De Louvre tu so in all mcm kita dh taula nk p mana pasni.
We stopped for a while to grab lunch. Tu pun jenoh jgak mencari sbb xtau kat mana kedai halal. Last2 jumpak kedai arab ni order spaghetti je makan. Kedai arab kat sini xleh percaya skit kena selidik betul2 haha tp kalau xde pilihan darurat xpala hehe. After lunch we headed out to the next destination which is Notre-Dame Cathedral. Again I'm not googling so I am not sure whether this is the right spelling keke. I am always reminded by Quasimodo whenever I heard the name Notre-Dame keke. Anyway, again it is a church. I guess that is what the tourists were like when they came to our place. In our place they see mosque everywhere just like we see church everywhere at their place hehe.
But Notre-Dame is beautiful. Unique is more accurate. Then we headed out to love bridge. Is that what they called it? I'm not sure haha maybe lock bridge? Okay abaikan haha.
Here is the famous love lock bridge? I donno haha. Mmg banyak gila padlocks kat situ. Fun fact; bridge ni pernah runtuh dulu due to the heaviness of the padlocks. Dahsyat. Simbolik kat sini pasangan tulih nama masing2 lock kat bridge then buang kunci dalam sungai so that the padlock stays unlocked just like their heart is. Hihi. Haritu dh pg dgn beloved tp xteringat pulak nk buat. Xpa ku ingatmu dalam doaku tu lagi afdal ye dak keke.
Then we walked from the bridge; across the river to go to the other side of attractions. Walking in Paris is peaceful. First, it was cold so it is comfortable second because the traffic is not that congested. So you can really enjoy the walk. The next attraction is Museum De Louvre. Okay xcek spelling betul ke tak rasanya betul dh ni hahha. We just walk around there well we didn't go there as it turns out I am the only one who have a thing with visiting the museum. They said there is Monalisa portrait in there.
Lepas ni dah terus nk balik. Mama dgn abah penat berjalan Arc de Triomphe pon xpegi. Tapi nampakla kot jauh ckuplaa hehe. Champ Elyesse pon xpegi hahaha. Xpala nnt kita p balik okay hehe.
Random. The couple were reading books besides the river with the view of Eiffel Tower. Untonglaaaa haha
Mama suruh tgkap sbb teruja tgok semua fresh2 hehe
Balik tu mama masak hihi. Tambah berpinggan2 okay. Air tangan mak memang tiada tandingannya.
Ayam bakaq beli kat kedai tu pastu apadia lagi ntaah xingat plak sayoq tu jgn ckpla semua nk boh licin plak tu hahaha
The next morning we woke very early in the morning because we are heading out to La Vallee Village. Kalau kat Malaysia ni mcm JPO la kalau kat MCR macam Cheshire Oaks keke. The journey was about 1 hour lebih kurangla xsampai pon hehe. Then train tu mcm ada cabang contoh kalau ke kanan pg La Vallee ke kiri pg Disneyland Paris. Hmmm nnt kena pegi lain and ambik cabang kiri hehe.
All in all, I would say I love my trip to Paris. Just because I went there with my most beloved and important persons. Given next time I had a chance to go to France again I would very like to visit Lyon or Nice because France is very big it is quite hard to go to these places. You will need extra days too. Insyaallah one day I will :)
Au Revoir, Paris!
