22 Jan PARIS FOR THE DAY
Paris for the day is always a good idea.
Hopped on the Eurostar early morning. I’d booked my tickets back in October, so they were a great deal at £29 each way. Also, as a AmEx card holder, you can enjoy the lounges at both stations and this really does elevate the travelling experience!
Then dragged ourselves away to wander around the pretty streets. Warmed up with Earl Grey tea and then steak n frites, before catching the train back.
Such a tonic to grey and cold January.
1/50 places before 50
With my birthday coming up in March, it will then be 5 years till I’m 50. So I’m starting a long term project of “50 places before 50”.
I’d hoped to do to just “cities” that I haven’t visited before but this feels too ambitious. The broader suggestion of “places” feels achievable as this could be anything… a city, a town, a restaurant, a country, a park, etc. Wherever or whatever – it’s about organising and making “50 experiences” happen regularly over the next 5 years.
