First weekend in Paris? Check!
So far, I’m loving it here!
(Let’s hope I feel the same way in a month or so.)
I just said goodbye to my parents, they’re on their way back home. We’ve spent an incredible weekend in Paris. But it had to start à la Belgique! Our train was delayed for 45 min. Apparently, the train driver got sick and there was no substitute to be found.
Oh Belgium and your horrible public transportation, I will not miss you!
On my arrival in the hotel, I was welcomed by an other intern, Lucas. He showed me around. I never knew what hotels would like ‘behind the scenes’, so it was quite interesting to see all of that.
Then, I got to see my ‘home’. It’s a small room on the top floor of the hotel. I will probably sweat to death in summer, but the room has everything you need.
After we dropped my luggage, my parents and I went for a little bit of exploring.
The sun was out!
There she is!
That night, I introduced myself Ella-style to my fellow interns. I wanted to take a shower, so grabbed my stuff and headed to the shower. When I closed my door I heard a loud ‘click’. Guess what: I had locked myself out of my room. On my first night here … Heading to the shower, so I wasn’t wearing too many clothes…
I probably didn’t open the lock completely when I entered the room. So when I left my room and closed the door behind me, the lock closed because of the slam. Good job me.
Luckily most of the interns were in their rooms, so I could ask them for help. Two of them went downstairs to the reception to get a spare key. The lady that keeps these came back up with them. I will be working with her next week, and this was our first introduction!
Way to go Ella!
The next day (this morning) I went for brunch with my parents at Café Madam. I highly recommend this place. It was delicious!
The following pictures are from my room. This way you can imagine where I’m hanging out.
Nothing fancy, but I really like it! It feels like ‘kot’ to me.
Thanks for reading & au revoir!
