Staying in Beautiful Montmartre, Paris

On my first trip to Paris, I stayed in Montmartre. Accommodation was organised by my friend who has been there before, I just kind of tagged along for the ride, put the address into Citymapper and navigated the Metro to get there. Returning to Paris in May, this time with my boyfriend who had never been to France before, I wanted to show him the sides of the city that really showed the character of the country, and for me, Montmartre is the perfect area for that.

How it Feels to Visit Disneyland For The First Time - by Charlie Elliott, Age 28 and 3/4

I've seen the Terracotta Warriors and Sydney Opera House. I once met Benedict Cumberbatch. My favourite book has been made into a TV series and is to be screened on Channel 4 THIS WEEK. But I have never, ever been as excited as I was to go to Disneyland, Paris.

What I Ate in Paris

Food is such an integral part of any trip I make; I often plan where I'm going to eat before I decide what tourist attractions I'll take in. Of course, I've heard much about the food in France, but as cheese, chocolate and red wine are all readily available in England, I never really thought much of it. But the stereotypes are there for a reason and I embraced them on my trip to Paris before Christmas. 

A Weekend in Paris

I've travelled to some incredible places, far from home, yet before Christmas I had never been to Paris. The people I told were always shocked that I hadn't taken the short trip across the Channel; it seems a rite of passage for any British person to have a weekend break there, and even I found it strange that I'd got to 26 without ever visiting.
