France, Paris, 17 – 20 July 2015

Paris, founded in the 3rd century BC, not much can be said that hasn’t already been said about this city, the worlds top tourist destination, population 12 million. A surprise around every corner and one or two tourists as well. The metro will take you just about anywhere but get used to climbing stairs because escalators are few and far between. A 10 ride ticket costs 14 Euro.

I was last here in 1983 when Paris was clearly a French city, now at times I am not sure what part of the world I’m in and the French have learnt to speak English in the intervening years hahaha.

From Brussels I rode to Paris on the N2 which is not a freeway, it winds through many small towns and villages, takes about an hour longer, hardly any traffic a different pace altogether compared to the freeway.

The first thing I did was to get a Lebara SIM card for my phone, cost E20 for 600 min of talk, 600 sms and 1 GB data valid for a month.
