After almost 7 months of being away from each other, he was finally able to visit me here!
I was in a long distance relationship since I moved here in Bordeaux. Then a few months after, he came to Europe. Once settled with his new life abroad, we made plans in meeting as soon as he can. You can check his story in his personal blog here.
We agreed that I would pick him up at the Paris Airport because I wasn’t sure if he’d be able to meet me at the city. From Bordeaux, I took an early train to Paris, then took the metro and then the RER transfer to the airport. It almost took 5 hours to reach it but it was all worth it. 😉
It was already around mid-day when we met and had only a few hours left to see the city before we head back to Bordeaux. So I only took him to places that were easily accessible to us. From the airport, we headed straight to the Notre Dame Cathedral.
By the way, we never went inside to all the places that we went to because there wasn’t enough time.
Afterwards, we walked all the way to the Louvre Museum. We grabbed a quick-lunch at a crêpe restaurant near the museum. From there, we took another metro train to see the Arc de Triomphe and try to get that perfect empty street (sort-of) shot. When we failed, we decided to move on to our last itinerary which was the Eiffel Tower.
It was amazing to see the Eiffel tower with the one you love. It’s cliché, but I just can’t help it, especially when you’re in the most romantic places on earth. We were just so happy to be together again, even though we had a short trip in Paris. At least I got to spend a week with him in Bordeaux. 😉
