I celebrated Mother’s Day 2019, taking a train with my son, Xavier, on a rainy Sunday to NYC. We fought rainy weather all day with 3 large bags and finally arrived at The Best Western Hotel. Next, we dropped off the luggage using the service Luggage Hero. If you have never tried it when traveling, I highly recommend it.
Afterwards, I checked Yelp so Xavier and I didn’t have to walk too far in the rain looking for a place to eat. As a result, only a few blocks away was The Rag Trader & Bo Peep Cocktail and Highball Store. (review on site, Yelp, or Google Maps).
Once we braved the nightmare that is JFK airport and boarded the plane, the flight was everything you want first class to be. For example we had a faster check-in and for me, unlimited champagne!!!
Above all, we slept like royalty in our first-row seat (book early 😉).
Like a little kid I screamed the first time we saw the Eiffel Tower!
The driver we hired didn’t show (Welcome Pickups received refund) so we got a cab to our hotel.
Consequently, our Paris adventure was 1 exciting moment after the next.
Over the next posts I bring you Paris through the eyes of a first timer.
In short, Xavier and I experienced every tourist adventure Paris had to offer. In addition, we had a few escapades you can’t believe (Champagne tour of the French countryside and Disneyland Paris).
