"I arrived in Paris at 9:30am, it was cold and raining. I took the metro ๐Ÿš† from Charles de Gaulle airport to my friendโ€™s apartment in the 7th arrondissement.
I was starving, so I decided to go to a typical French brasserie. I ordered a truffle Croque Monsieur with fries, it was delicious ๐Ÿคค .
Since the weather was getting better and I was craving something sweet, I walked to the Tour Eiffel to get a crepe banane-Nutella ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿซ.
While I was eating my crepe, I sunbathed at the Place du Trocadero and enjoyed the pretty view of the Tour Eiffel.
I then walked back to the apartment to get prepared for the concert ๐ŸŽธ. I was running late (as usual) but I got there on time for Iann Dior which was performing before Machine Gun Kelly ๐Ÿค˜. The show was amazing and I had so much fun!

The next morning, I woke up at 6:30am. I slept for 3 hours in 2 days; I was exhausted but so excited to go back home to Luxembourg ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡บ.
Two hours later, I was in Luxembourg, under a beautiful sun, waiting for my mum to pick me up. We went to Oberweis, a Luxembourgish brasserie, where we often go for lunch. Then we picked up my brother from school. Back home, I saw my lovely cat ๐Ÿˆ again and I napped for probably 3 hours until my sister came back home.
For dinner, we went to Mamashelter, which is one of our favorite restaurants. As usual, the food was excellent ๐Ÿคค. That night, I was so tired, I slept for 11 hours ๐Ÿ˜ด!
The next day, it was Saturday. And in our family, Saturday means McDonaldโ€™s ๐ŸŸ for lunch. Itโ€™s been a family tradition for as long as I can remember! I wanted crepes again so I made some for everyone

After lunch I went to town to do some shopping ๐Ÿ› with my mum. When I came back home, I spent some family time and started to pack my things again. On Sunday morning, I woke up very early โ˜€๏ธ to catch the train ๐Ÿš† to Paris and then the plane โœˆ๏ธ back to Montreal.
These 4 days were very intense but I was so grateful to be able to see and spend some time with my family ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ
I was obviously sad to leave them and two days home ๐Ÿ™ was very short but I was also excited to come back and see my lovely roommate, Imogen ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ"
