How have you been doing? Good, I hope :).
It has been quite a while since I posted or shared anything with you, and I am sorry for that! I have been very busy with school, preparations for my semester in Berlin and of course, I went to Paris!

Yes, last thursday, I went to Paris. I had to wake up super early in order to catch the train at 6:18 that would take me from Amsterdam to Paris Gare du Nord, where I arrived around 10. The first thing I did was buy some tickets for the subway. I accidentally bought 10 subway tickets woops! I already had an idea of what places I wanted to visit and I was so happy to be reunited with the city of love! Check out further to see how my day in Paris looked like :).
