It’s not yet the trip I’ve been planning for since 2019, but at least I’m back on an international train again, this time with destination Paris!
I’ve been to the City of Light several times before, but I can’t remember ever having spent the night here as a tourist. That’s about to change!
Like most of my days out and about, I start with coffee, and since the Ten Belles roastery was only a short walk from the Gare du Nord, that was my first destination.
Then it was time to check into my Ibis Styles hotel, just to drop off some stuff, and make sure there actually was a room waiting for me. Luckily, it was! And yes, that is a single bed, before booking I didn’t even know hotels still had these… But hey, that’s a couple of euros saved I can now spend on beer!
