It is without a doubt that girls and the city of Paris go hand in hand, but this little frisky trip to the city of light and love was taken by Mustafa Sheikh, a student at University of Buckingham completing his last semester. He narrates his travel tale to Fatima Sheikh.

Why did you choose Paris?

I chose Paris because of its rich history, beautiful architecture and of course the Eiffel Tower, which intrigued me a lot. They say Paris is the city of romance so I was hoping to get lucky.

When is the best time to go?

Honestly the best time is anytime. Just grab a ticket and go if you want to have fun.

Where did you stay?

I stayed at Sofitel Le Faubourg, an excellent 5 star hotel defining true luxury. It’s in the heart of Paris, between the highly elegant Faubourg Saint-Honoré and the mythical Champs-Elysées avenue. The street has all the brands you can imagine.

Favourite restaurant?

They’re many good restaurants, but my favorite was George V Café on Champs-Elysées. They have the best escargots I’ve ever had. I don’t remember the name of the accompanying cocktail, it was extremely good.

Five essentials you cannot live without when travelling?

  1. Money
  2. Black coffee
  3. Homemade parathay
  4. Credit card
  5. I’m still thinking of the fifth one because Paris is essential free so just enjoy while you are there.

How to get around?

Honestly the best way to get around is the tube. Unlike London’s subway it’s not that confusing and all the central locations were just a few minutes away. Driving there was also fun but it took me a while to figure out where I was and where I was going.

What did you get up to during the day?

I got up to the amazing feeling that croissants and coffee are waiting for me downstairs at breakfast along with a beautiful view and the freshness that Paris has to offer in the morning.

What to see?

From the heights of Eiffel Tower watching the whole city with a glass of champagne in hand, to the depths of catacombs with the remains of 6 million people, everything is worth seeing. The cathedrals are beautiful, especially Notre Dame. I almost saw all the prime locations as I had done my research before my trip (having googled top places in Paris).

Whether you’re going with your fiancée for romance or with your childhood buddies for bromance, Paris will not disappoint you at all.

Good Times
