Went on a short pre-christmas trip to Paris for a few days, thought I would share a few of my experiences. The first thing to note in Paris is the cost, plan for expensive meals if you go you will really struggle to avoid it. A good place togo that you can find easily is a Pauls Patisserie we had a nice lunch sandwich and a crape while there for a resonable price. When it comes to evening meals you need to be more careful about where you go. We tried a few different places but average evening meal cost is ~25euros for the food then add on top for drinks, although wine is fine avoid beer found that to be expensive at ~6euro a glass. Its not all doom and gloom though if you are sub 25 the attractions are generally free*, UK student cards dont work I believe international student card does though but that requires sorting out before the trip.
Here are a few shots of paris to cheer you up, will add a few more as my camera master sends me her images.
