We traveled on the Eurostar which was almost a 2 hour journey, it went so quick, make sure you give yourself enough time, an hour at least, before checking in at the station, not like us, we arrived at London St Pancras at 5pm and the Eurostar was to depart at 5:35pm so we ran like Forest Gump but got there on time huffing and puffing, not a good look!
Me and Nas on the Eurostar looking very excited!
If you would like to visit Paris but only want to go for a short break and want to do a lot of sightseeing I would definitely recommend you to buy the Paris Pass, you save money, skip lines and hassle of buying tickets to museums, galleries, metro and bus tours, I was so glad that I had bought it!!

Places I visited
As this was the first time we went to Paris, I wanted to make sure we went to the main attractions that needed to be seen, Eiffel Tower which we booked a short tour of,Lourve Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, Centre Pompidou, Musee D'Orsay, Arc De Triomphe, Champs Elysees and Moulin Rouge. I think we did well considering we only stayed for three nights and had two full days to do most of the sight seeing, going on the bus tour is a must!!
