Over The Counter Viagra

Over the counter viagra Serena and I had to take different flights going into Paris because hers came with her US flights. Over the counter viagra We managed to get the same arrival time, over the counter viagra but we had to fly into different airports – I to ORY and she to CDG. Over the counter viagra We semi-freaked out about this since we’re going to by ourselves and we thought French are rude, over the counter viagra but we were wrong. Over the counter viagra French people don’t mind speaking English, over the counter viagra and was not any more nice nor rude than other countries.

Over the counter viagra As soon as I got to the airport I shelled out some euros to get the Museum pass which was €35 for a two day pass – well worth it if you want to see a lot of things in Paris. Over the counter viagra I also recommend getting the Paris transportation pass since you’ll probably be using a lot of their metro.

Over the counter viagra I found out that the major train that was going to take me to the city – RER B – was on strike that day. Over the counter viagra The helpful girl at the tourist counter recommended me another route which involves taking the bus to Denfert Rochereau metro. Over the counter viagra I didn’t want to take taxi, over the counter viagra so I took the bus option and it was the worst airport-to-city journey I had throughout the entire trip. Over the counter viagra We were packed into the bus like sardines (i guess because everyone had to take this bus), over the counter viagra when I tried to get into the station my luggage almost couldn’t fit through the gate, over the counter viagra and THEN the train into the city was so crowded that I was pushed against everyone with my big luggage.

Over the counter viagra But finally, over the counter viagra I made it safely to our hostel – Plug-inn hostel at Blanche area. Over the counter viagra  This hostel was probably the most commercialized and expensive accommodation we paid, over the counter viagra but Paris isn’t exactly a cheap city. Over the counter viagra I don’t mind the hostel much and it was located in a convenient area. Over the counter viagra It was also down the street from Moulin Rouge area, over the counter viagra but it was actually not very sketchy.

Day 11 – November 9, over the counter viagra 2011

Over the counter viagra Like most people visiting Paris, over the counter viagra we were of course excited to see the Eiffel Tower! We were starving so we had a quick lunch at a chinese place down the street (we really missed asian food, over the counter viagra you see) then took the metro down to Eiffel Tower.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Eiffel tower!! we gasped at the first sight of it. Over the counter viagra you’d never guess how excited we were to see this tall tower!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Jardin du Champ de Mars – so pretty with the yellowing trees around it

Over the counter viagra Hoping to be able to check out the summit of the tower that day, over the counter viagra Serena and I got in line. Over the counter viagra To our dismay, over the counter viagra the elevator decided to malfunction right when we get to the end of the line. Over the counter viagra One hour wasted and we were pissed. Over the counter viagra It was getting dark at 5pm, over the counter viagra so we decided to just enjoy the city and walk to Champ-Elysees at the other side of Seine River.

Over the counter viagra But, over the counter viagra halfway through Pont d’lena bridge, over the counter viagra we looked back in awe as the Eiffel tower started to light up as the night fell. Over the counter viagra It was one of the most gorgeous sight of the entire trip! We were no longer pissed off.

Over the counter viagra Jardin du Trocadero, over the counter viagra where we got a better view of the magical Eiffel Tower

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra After taking a million pictures, over the counter viagra we continued to walk towards Arc du Triomphe, over the counter viagra and onto Paris’ main shopping street – Champ-Elysees. Over the counter viagra I was VERY impressed by this street. Over the counter viagra It was big and very full of life and glittering with all kinds of high end stores. Over the counter viagra I see now why Paris time is shopping time!

Over the counter viagra Serena and I had our own agenda at Champ-Elysees. Over the counter viagra She wanted to check our Louis Vuitton, over the counter viagra while I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some french macarons. Over the counter viagra They both happened to be close to each other so it all worked out well! We hit the Louis Vuitton store first, over the counter viagra which was huge and extremely overrated but walked away empty handed as their collection was just not impressive. Over the counter viagra We continued to walk down the street, over the counter viagra and I spotted the famous pastry shop Laduree! We quickly made our way into the small shop and was delighted that the line wasn’t too bad.

Over the counter viagra Tired from all the walking, over the counter viagra we decided to call it a day and went home.

Day 12 – November 10, over the counter viagra 2011

Over the counter viagra We were determined to get to the top of Eiffel Tower today, over the counter viagra so we set out to the tower – bright and early. Over the counter viagra The elevator didn’t malfunction this time and we were able to get to the summit! The summit ticket costed us €13.40

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra The summit is tall. Over the counter viagra Very, over the counter viagra very tall. Over the counter viagra Looking down was almost scary but we enjoyed our stay.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Paris was cold around this time. Over the counter viagra I’m glad I brought my coat!!

Over the counter viagra Satisfied with the tower, over the counter viagra we made our way to Notre Dame de Paris, over the counter viagra a gothic Catholic church at the heart of Paris built in the 12th century.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra The front door was decorated with a statue of Jesus and the twelve apostles

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Inside there was a small, over the counter viagra intimate mass! No idea what it was for though.

Over the counter viagra From there we went to…

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Musee du Louvre! It was actually within walking distance from Notre Dame but we had the metro pass so we took those instead :P I was slightly disappointed to find that there was no line at Louvre. Over the counter viagra I wanted to use my Paris Pass privilege!! ah well. Over the counter viagra We went straight inside and looked for Mona Lisa.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Finally! The painting was a lot smaller than I had expected, over the counter viagra but there she was. Over the counter viagra I had to wade through a thick crowd to get a picture up close…

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Venus de Milo, over the counter viagra created on 100BC and is one of the most famous ancient Greek sculpture.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Louvre is a HUGE museum. Over the counter viagra Art lovers can spend hours, over the counter viagra if not days, over the counter viagra wading through this museum. Over the counter viagra Serena and I wasn’t exactly one of those people so we were in and out within two hours after checking out the must-see arts. Over the counter viagra We went to check out Jardin du Tuileries right outside of Louvre

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Such a pretty and relaxed place. Over the counter viagra I looooved all the parks we went to in Europe!!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Louvre from afar

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra From this park, over the counter viagra we took the train to another park – Jardin du Luxembourg, over the counter viagra which has now become my favorite park!!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra They had all these chairs instead of benches for people to sit in. Over the counter viagra Everyone just literally sat in circles, over the counter viagra reading books or chatting with friends as they’re enjoying the beautiful weather!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra So Serena and I followed suit, over the counter viagra we sat on the chairs for awhile before moving on

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Our next destination was about two blocks away the Pantheon

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra This Pantheon isn’t as old and full of history as the one we saw in Rome, over the counter viagra but I was still impressed by how massive and beautiful it was

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra We were close to St. Over the counter viagra Sulpice, over the counter viagra an area Serena wanted to check out for shopping and also home for my second macaron hunt: Pierre Herme. Over the counter viagra On the way there, over the counter viagra we passed by Jardin du Luxembourg again and I went picture happy, over the counter viagra again. Over the counter viagra The entire park was just too pretty to resist!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Amidst all the activity and excitement, over the counter viagra I spotted this old couple slowly trotting through the park, over the counter viagra arm in arm. Over the counter viagra I’m not sure if it was just the romantic atmosphere in Paris or what, over the counter viagra but I was very touched by them. Over the counter viagra I hope to find someone I can share the same experience with, over the counter viagra one day.

Over the counter viagra A few blocks down from the park, over the counter viagra we found ourselves at Rue de Bonaparte – where one of Pierre Herme store is!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Read my entry on macarons here!

Over the counter viagra We were hoping for some cheap shopping at St. Over the counter viagra Sulpice, over the counter viagra but it was actually the opposite. Over the counter viagra All the stores were high end boutiques and expensive! However, over the counter viagra we stumbled into a Burberry store and Serena did stumble out with a new coat :P

Over the counter viagra We wanted to have dinner at a place my french friend recommended but it wasn’t open till 7:30 so we walked to Musee d’Orsay nearby. Over the counter viagra I was hoping to see Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, over the counter viagra but as soon as we got there I found out the painting was currently on loan… in, over the counter viagra get this, over the counter viagra Singapore. Over the counter viagra of ALL the countries and time! The good thing is I can still see it as it will be here till Feb 5.

Over the counter viagra I did enjoy the rest of Orsay very much though. Over the counter viagra We got to check out Van Gogh’s other works, over the counter viagra as well as various works by Claude Monet I had previously learned about. Over the counter viagra I much preferred Orsay compared to Louvre!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Afterwards we went back to Rue Saint Benoit for french dinner at Au Pied de Fouet, over the counter viagra and went home.

Day 13 – November 11, over the counter viagra 2011

Over the counter viagra We woke up bright and early again to the place I looked forward the most. Over the counter viagra I was a french revolution geek growing up, over the counter viagra so I was extremely excited to visit Versailles!

Over the counter viagra It was located about an hour away from Paris and we took the train to get there.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra On the way to Chateau de Versailles. Over the counter viagra How pretty is this?

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra The gates outside were entirely painted in gold.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Chateau de Versailles – a beautiful palace where three generations of French monarch lived – Louis XIV to XVI (and his famous queen Marie Antoinette) lived. Over the counter viagra Upon entering the palace, over the counter viagra we were given an audio tour guide which was very helpful. Over the counter viagra I still can’t believe I was at the very site where Marie Antoinette tried to escape during the beginning of French Revolution!

Over the counter viagra Versailles

Over the counter viagra And get this, over the counter viagra this is the backyard of the palace. Over the counter viagra a freaking forest. Over the counter viagra No big deal!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra We started making our way to Petit Trianon, over the counter viagra which took about 15 minutes by foot.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra From Petit Trianon, over the counter viagra we also tried to check out Marie Antoinette’s estate but it was just too cold outside and the park was way too big! so we saw what we could and made our way back to the palace.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra The entire Versailles trip took half a day. Over the counter viagra When we got back to the city, over the counter viagra we went straight back to Champ-Elysees to check out Arc du Triomphe.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Nice view of Champ-Elysees from the top of the arc. Over the counter viagra We were also up there at the right time and got to witness Eiffel tower’s mini light show. Over the counter viagra Apparently every hour right on the dot, over the counter viagra the Eiffel Tower begins to glitter for about 5 minutes.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra From there, over the counter viagra we went back to our hostel to prepare ourselves for tonight’s dinner at Eiffel Tower!!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Good bye Eiffel tower.

Day 14 – November 12, over the counter viagra 2011

Over the counter viagra We don’t have much to do that day so we slept in and only went out at noon. Over the counter viagra It also marks my last day in Europe :( I fly out at 9pm that day and Serena flies out at 8am the next day… the whole day we kept saying how much fun the trip has been and how we can’t believe we had to come back home!!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Visited yet another point point chinese food place.. Over the counter viagra ok, over the counter viagra i guess in a way we’re also glad to be coming back home…

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra They had Sriracha!!

Over the counter viagra We decided to stop by Sacre Coeur since it’s only 10 minutes away from our hostel.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Our share of morning cardio…

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Best decision ever. Over the counter viagra Sacre Coeur is located on top of a hill, over the counter viagra overlooking Paris. Over the counter viagra the weather was beautiful that day and we got to sit on the steps for awhile, over the counter viagra people watching and just enjoying the view of paris.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra The small square opposite of Sacre Coeur, over the counter viagra Square Louise Michel.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Be careful at the area around the bottom of the steps though! There will be a bunch of people walking around holding what seems to be bracelets, over the counter viagra and they would just come up to you and try to wrap these bracelets around your wrist with or without your consent. Over the counter viagra Once it’s on, over the counter viagra they will demand you to pay 5 euros for their silly bracelets! A guy actually grabbed my wrist and tried to put one on me despite my repeated “no no no”, over the counter viagra and only backed off because Serena practically YELLED at him!

Over the counter viagra We decided to finally go for a real Paris shopping trip at Galeries Lafayette

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Galeries Lafayette is a famous shopping place. Over the counter viagra It has all the high end brands house in one single mall! The place was also invaded by Asian people, over the counter viagra us being two of them… You know it’s a good deal when there are asians around :P

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Not sure if you can tell, over the counter viagra but the mannequins on top are tiny models of the actual clothes! i thought it was soooo cute…

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra My loot of the day – a miu miu wallet for my sister. Over the counter viagra I got it in a very miu miu color – the pink Mughetto! it was also a great deal since I got it for €310. Over the counter viagra They retail for US$400 in america and S$660 in singapore, over the counter viagra so we saved a few bucks :P

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra The man was drawn entirely in crayons!

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Stopped by laduree to buy a box of 24 macarons for my coworkers. Over the counter viagra OMG just remembering the heavenly smell of these makes me want to cry T_T

Over the counter viagra Right after that, over the counter viagra we went straight back to the hostel and waited for my shuttle bus to come pick me up at around 7pm. Over the counter viagra I decided against taking the train with my big luggage, over the counter viagra so we booked a shuttle to the airport which costed €20.

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Good bye europe… This whole trip has just been amazing and such an eye opener for me. Over the counter viagra It was definitely a top 3 moment i my entire life thus far!! I will be back some day..

Over the counter viagra

Over the counter viagra Emirates have pretty decent in flight meal :)
