Friend's Travel Tales: Mylene's PARIS Adventure....Dreams Do Come True

It's been quite awhile since The Letters In November shared a friend's travel adventure! This time we are taking you to....

The Most Romantic Place In The World- PARIS!


I'd love you all to meet my friend, a former student- Mylene Lumibao!


I have seen in her the potential for success even as a student. I guess her hard work and sacrifices paid off because she is now based in London, United Kingdom and has the time and resources to travel the world! Whew, indeed DREAMS TO COME TRUE...

The first time she shared on facebook about traveling to Paris I was glued to her adventure! I was gleeful when she allowed me to feature her trip with friends!



From London to Paris, they traveled via Eurostar for two hours. Then from Paris Gare Du Nord station to their hotel took them around twenty five minutes via taxi. Mylene says she appreciates the friendly taxi driver's effort to communicate well with them, even gladly sharing information about the note-worthy places they were passing by.

 

 Come, let's join them virtually!


1. The Eiffel Tower

The hotel they stayed in was near Eiffel tower. Mylene says the first time they saw the tower felt surreal.



The view was specially spectacular for her because she was fulfilling a long time dream.

 Hmmmm look at those happy excited smiles! Mylene shares the queue to go up the tower is usually very long but waiting for your turn is all worth it.


  The tower usually starts to light up at around 6:00 P.M. and then every hour sparkles for the first 5 minutes of every hour thereafter- something I would love to one sweet day see for myself!



Whew, sigh....wish one day I too could go up the Eiffel tower and feel the romance the place exudes.

Mylene and friends also went for the River Seine Cruise at around 7:00  in the evening.



She says the view was awesome and all of Paris is one artistic place deserving of the title- City of Light and Romance.

2. Pont des Amoureux - Love Lock Bridge


Paris' Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor pedestrian bridge, a very symbolic place where lovers write their names on a padlock and locks it onto the bridge. They would then throw the key into the Seine River as a symbol of their undying love.


...above was Mylene/ Mhai sealing her love for Raffy forever by the bridge! Oh so romantic eh? I wish they'd be sealing their love through a ceremony soon and that I would be invited hehehe...

Mylene and friends toured the rest of Paris via a tour bus.

She notes that Notre Dame was amazing. She jokingly said she was wondering where Quasimodo was, hehehe.

She and her friends also enjoyed Louvre Museum and the paintings there. The Pastry of Paris is one gastronomical adventure according to her with very delectable range of breads. Gee, the foodie in me would love to be there now!

3. Paris Disneyland

I think this is where Mylene had the best time in France. I could almost hear her exclaiming reading her thoughts on the place as somewhere where she felt like a kiddo again!


 Hmmm..her smiles show how happy she was!


Needless to say my friend had a wondrous time! She claims the experience was made meaningful having been shared with her dear friends and that traveling with great people makes it all worthwhile....

Found this quote on her facebook wall which fully describes her joy at having fulfilled a dream which I too could hold on to...

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
