I've been reading "what you wish someone would have told you" - it's great!
I'm going to Paris in October with my 12 year old daughter (it's her MASSIVE birthday surprise!!). It's my second visit to Paris but the first time was 13 years ago when I was 19(!!) so I don't remember an awful lot about it and can't wait to see it all again. My daughter is DESPERATE to see the Eiffel Tower so I'm trying to make her little dream come true, can't wait.
What's it like in Paris in October? Weather wise is it very similar to England? We're going for 4 nights the last week of October so I'm expecting it might be a little cold? Will all the attractions still be very busy at that time of year or does it quieten down a bit once the summer months are over?
Does anyone know when Christmassy type things start appearing (lights etc.)? I suspect we might be a little early for that though.
We're staying at Hotel Meslay Republique as I have read lots of good things about it, sounds like a really nice area too. Can't wait to get there!
My plans so far are to see all the main attractions, but having read a bit of the "what you wish someone had told you thread", I intend to take it very slowly and just see what we see in the time we have. I'm sure we'll make it back there again one day! Eiffel Tower will obviously be job one though! I'm planning on doing Disney for a day as well as my daughter is still at an age where she will love it, what with Frozen being the latest!
20 weeks and counting! :)
