(All pictures were taken using my Canon 5D unless stated otherwise)
Not a very nice sleep last night.
Woke up at 8:50am to do a final tidy up of my luggage. Briefly tidied the place and called a taxi to the Hidden Hotel to drop off my luggage. I only stayed in the lobby but it looked nice and comfy. The room would not be ready by 16:00, that means I had to spend SIX hours on the street!!!
I walked to Arc de Triomphe first since I think the time was still early and there would not be too much people. It was a short walk from the hotel. The weather was very warm, sunny, with blue sky and no clouds.
Arc de Triomphe @ 10:30am
I did not go inside the Arc de Triomphe because you have to pay for it and I was waiting for Helen to go with me as we would have the museum pass.
I then randomly walked to the side streets and looked around
After two-hour walk on the street, I got tired (how surprising?!). I walked to the main street, Avenue des Champs-Elysees, found a cafe and sit down, to fill up my stomach and get some caffine. That was 12:30pm.
Every-so-often, I had to stop and studied my map to see where I was. I must have walked for a very long way, I ended up back to Trocadero and took some more pictures of the Eiffel Tower:
Finally, it was 16:30 I could get my room!!
I was presented with a "Hidden Hotel Passport" which included a key card for the room, a namecard of the hotel, a Paris map, and a postcard:
I absolutely LOVE the room:
I went out to have burgers for dinner. After which I quickly went back to the hotel because what a waste it would be if I did not spend as much time as possible to stay in such a comfortable hotel?!
