Day 4, Paris.

It was a day of walking on another 0°C day.
It so happened that our pre-planned itinerary was mainly to explore the areas around our hotel.
We did intend to take the metro for a stop or 2 for some places so it did not affect us much by exploring on foot except for the last venue.

Craved for some hot soupy dinner after a day out in the wintry Paris streets.

Day 1, Paris. 2 Dec 2019.

This time round, cheap airfare brought us to Munich. When we had decided in having Europe as our year end trip and started to look out for fare deals by Singapore Airlines, we found one to Munich.

Mid November to December is usually the blackout period (school holiday and festive month) for any promotions, so S$1,100 / passenger was a very, very good fare.

We would usually visit maximum 2 countries in a trip and as I would want very much to visit our friend & her daughter in Paris, soon after purchasing our SG-Munich-SG tickets, we bought Munich-Paris-Munich ones as well. And I was looking forward to it!

Stayed at Novotel Les Halles for its good location (which we came to really appreciate in the later part of our stay) and their service was superb as well.

We had a smooth early check-in which gave us some time to roam about before heading to our afternoon tea which we reserved for 3pm.

Finally I got to visit my favourite tea brand which I fell in love with since 6 years ago.

After our afternoon tea, we had a walk around Le Marais which included some more shopping and a coffee break.

There was a very small Christmas market next to the hotel, at Forum Des Halles.
Had our first mulled wine for the trip.

Had an early night since we only caught about 6 hours sleep in total for the past 40 hours.

Taken on 2 Dec, our day of arrival.

Had a great holiday in Paris last week and the massive strike hit right in the middle of our 5-day stay.

But everything went on well for us even though our original Paris-Munich flight on 6 Dec was cancelled. Alternative arrangement was made for us and we reached Munich as scheduled.

Now we are on our last night of our 10-day winter holiday. Enjoyed thoroughly though it was a challenge to wake up at odd hours for some days.
