what a beautiful city! I liked Paris, you have a lot of things to know and see there and the subway drives you everywhere. I was there during the Soccer World Cup and watched a game of the French Team in a pub in Mont Martre - just cool!
When we arrived to Paris, I waited for my new friend. She was Canadian, but not from the French part, so she didn't speak French either. Besides English she was learning Spanish. In fact she was coming from Spain.
At the beginning it seemed to me that the people there weren’t as friendly as in
We went to the hostel. It was located near to the station - not a very nice neighborhood. I found it a bit creepy… But anyway, I needed a place to stay for that night. Well, should I stay in that creepy hostel feeling sorry for myself? No way! I talked to my new friend and convinced her to visit Notre Dame and walked around this beautiful city. So, we did. We were in Notre Dame and suddenly I missed her. I tried to find her, but it was impossible. What to do? What to do? Idea! I decided to call again a hostel a girl in
I decided to walk around the city, saw different buildings and arrived to the Louvre. I didn’t get inside, because it was late and it’s huge - so you need to spend a lot of time there. One full day is not enough. So, I was just walking in the courtyard when I met my friend again, hahaha. She was worried about me too, but I told her I found a place for the next days and she was happy for me. She was just staying for that night in Paris. Would catch a flight back home next morning.
I haven’t slept well the night before, so we went back to the hostel. I was going upstairs when I met a Brazilian guy.
It was my first night in
As agreed we met at the lobby. One by one we started to arrive and finally the group was complete: 1 Brazilian guy, 1 American girl, 3 Mexican boys, 1 Canadian girl, 1 Lithuanian boy and me. Wow!
Before leaving the hostel I told the Brazilian guy, that I wouldn't stay until too late, since I had to move to another hostel early next morning. He promised me, that if I had to leave early, he'd walk with me to the hostel, how sweet! We were having a great time, but I was ready to leave, and the guy honored his word, what a gentleman!
My good luck was coming back, yep! Just needed positive attitude ;)
