Holiday in Paris

Happy days, my internet is fixed and I am finally able to upload my snaps from my May holiday to Paris! We went over on the Eurostar for 7 nights and had a fantastic time despite spells of awful weather.
Our first 2 days were spent finding our hotel and settling in, we stayed at a hotel called Hipark in Serris and I can't recommend it enough if you're looking for somewhere not far from disney to use as a home from home, I did a lot of research and found it incredibly difficult to get a hotel with self catering suites that didn't have awful reviews and I'm so glad to have found the Hipark! It was a 15 minute walk from Disneyland and having our own facilities made a holiday with a young toddler much easier and a little less expensive. It was also only a 5 minute walk from a huge shopping village with a supermarket and a sealife centre which was great to peruse.

We then had 4 fantastic days at Disneyland and our last full day saw a visit to central Paris to see some of the classic sights. I won't lie to you, navigating foreign trains with a buggy was a pain but also made for a better adventure and we got to see the Eiffel tower on a beautiful sunny day so it was worth it!

I was pleasantly surprised by how many rides Enid could go on with us, she absolutely loved it all and I didn't leaving feeling we had taken her too soon as I had worried I would. Thanks to a slightly scary situation on our return journey, we now have a free return Eurostar trip to book within the next year so who knows, we may return to Disneyland, or we might just see where else it can take us.

It was so nice to get away on our first real solo family holiday and I feel so much better for having been away, I can't wait for summer to properly begin now.

I have a cute DIY ready to show you and some photos and other bits, so I'll see you soon! Happy June!
