It is my last day here in Paris after 2 weeks of awesome family holiday (which I still have a lot to write on), and I have some time to spare before my train from Gare du Nord to London in 3 hours’ time. It is lunch time and raining – a sensible person would have taken this opportunity to go to a nice café to sit and have some proper lunch before catching the train.

I am now in Europe (Paris, to be exact) and will be in this part of the world for the next five weeks.
I’m really excited since this is the first time I’m going for a long trip ever since I started this blog. I will try to update this space as often as possible with things I observe, the sights I love, the mistakes I make along the way, the things I eat, the places I stay, or simply how I feel about a particular thing.
But first, let me introduce you to my new friend here in Paris. Meet Jay Jay. She is one of the hosts at the apartment where I stay for my first night here.
