Happy New Day,
I have always wanted to go to France and I finally did it! I went to Paris for a couple of days and it was not what I expected. The rain was crazy and for me, weather plays a major role when it comes to my vacation enjoyment. Being from Kenya, a country whose temperatures are about 30 degrees Celsius all year round, Paris was challenging for me.
I couldn’t do much because it was raining but I hanged out at the super social Les Piaules and made some new friends, most of whom could not speak English but google translate came through for us.
Regardless of the rain, I walked around, got to see the Republique square. On my way back, I got lost and went round and round for 2hours. Yes, can you imagine getting lost on your own in a new country where you cannot speak the language?
I asked about 10 different people but all they did was confuse me even more. I have almost given up when I saw a burger king, a familiar brand. So to get some food and heat, I decided to eat there little did I know that I had discovered a gold mine. The burger king burger was the best one I have ever tasted. My mind was blown and for a minute, I forgot that I was lost and simmered in the Burger King delight.
The airline I used was Emirates and I found their staff very polite and helpful. I will definitely go to Paris for a longer time next time. What places should I visit next?
