Lufthansa Airlines replies to my posts on my own travel experience with them from Moscow to Paris. Thank you Lufthansa for sponsoring my trip and for sharing my experience with your extensive social network.
For over years and years I have heard many comments and reviews over Aeroflot, being a problematic airline, not reliable, unsafe… bla bla bla… so being who and how I am, I decided to give them a try. I flew Paris to New York, with a connection at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, and I must say Aeroflot from now on ranks as one of my TOP choices to fly to this side of the world and alternative locations in Asia. FYI Aeroflot is member of Sky Team, partnering on many routes and flights with Delta Airlines.
Are you a chocolate lover… well if the answer is yes, and you do not mind to put on some wait, ANGELINA is a must stop during your visit to Paris. Multiple locations in Paris, Lyon and Versailles, but today I came to see the one located over Rue Rivoli 226. Literally this place should be consider the No 1 enemy of keeping your waist line.
Today thanks to a local connection, I got to do a private tour of Hotel de Ville, with access to almost every room, except from the Major’s bureau. Aka Paris’ City Hall, Hotel de Ville is the biggest City Hall in all Europe.
To me the best views of the Eiffel Tower that Paris has to offer. Just spectacular. You get to see the Eiffel Tower in full, plus the fountains and Champ du Mars. Located on the 16eme arrondissement, Metro station Trocadero of the line 9. Trust me you wont regret it. And then from there you can go down the stairs to the base of the Eiffel Tower.
After having flown with them several times, I have realized that every time I step foot into one of their planes, I feel happy and I smile. From the moment you check in, mind your point of departure in the world, during your transit at any of their state-of-the-art terminals in Germany, till you get your luggage at your final destination, it is such a pleasant, enjoyable and effortless experience. Everyone smiles, and that is a lot to say being a German airline right.
Yes, yesterday I made it back to Paris, all the way from Moscow. I arrived late in the afternoon to check in at the stunning, sophisticated, exclusive and very well located Park Hyatt Paris Vendome Hotel. As its names implies, located steps away from Place Vendome, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Place de la Concorde and of course Opera. Below is the video of my room.
Sometimes I ask my self, how do this wonderfull airlines manage to have fares sometimes upto 50% lower than regular ones. either there is a hidden trick, or regular airlines are overcharging way too much. Well the truth is none of the above, the truth is that the low cost concept is a total scam, full of hidden and overpriced fees pf which you end up as their victim, once you at the airport hostage of a situation without anyone to assist or protect you rights.
On my first day visit to Deauville in Normandy, I learnt a lot of interesting facts, back at my suite next to my fireplace I am writing and sharing them all with you. Deauville dates from 1860, being this their 152 anniversary. Located in the northwestern France, part of the commune of Calvados, yes the same that gives the denomination of origin to the famous Brandy.
