Location: London

Day 1 - 16 Nov 2021

London

London, London

Content: Living in Europe makes so much sense when you can just take a three hours train to the capital of love art art. I travelled to Paris from London with Eurostar, but unless you book it in advance, it can get really expensive. I would suggest purchasing the Eurostar ticket 2-3 months in advance. The advantage of taking the train, apart from going under water, is that you just go to St Pancras International in London and before you know you’re in Gare du Norde🚆

Location: Montmartre

Day 2 - 17 Nov 2021

Paris

Montmartre , Paris

Content: Started my day with what else other than a pain au chocolate from a boulangerie. Emily in Paris would approve already🥖

It is a safe city, like many other European cities, just follow common sense - don’t walk alone at night and avoid sketchy areas. “Emily in Paris” is not happening only in movies, people do live like that, and you can be one of them!
