We took a red-eye flight, departed Kuala Lumpur at 8:00 PM and arrived in Paris in the morning after a fifteen-plus-hour flight with a layover of 2 hours in Doha.
As soon as the plane landed at the Charles de Gaulle Airport, we were whisked into a waiting coach and began our tour of Paris right away!!
Paris is 7 hours behind Malaysia.
Jet-lagged and sleep deprived, Paris was a blur to me. In zombie mode, we took lots of photos but I really couldn't identify most of the places we visited other than the iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Lourve Museum and the Arc de Triomphe.
|Arc de Triomphe|
|Pont Alexandre III|
|The Palais Garnier opera house|
Our three-course French dinner at Chez Edouard
The much maligned but utterly delicious garlicky snails were the highlight of the meal.
|Escargot with herb butter|
Doing Paris in just one day right after a 15 hr flight was exhausting! And when we checked into our hotel, we all crashed out on our beds, too tired to even shower! I was way too knackered to brush my teeth or remove my makeup!
