It’s true when they say Paris is so dangerous, I was a victim of their heinous crimes too. Now that I think of it, I shouldn’t have even have the thoughts of coming to Paris.
Parisians are RUDE.
Oh they are sooo rude that they stopped drinking their coffee to help this poor traveller looking for Eiffel Tower. They also “rudely” give away a perfect stranger their wifi password for him to contact his friend! How rude is that, right?!
See, rude people exist everywhere, not only Paris. I’ve seen some rude racist people in Japan (yes, a country known for it’s politeness). Also remember that politeness and respect is a two way street, if you expect them you gotta give them.
People will pickpocket and rob yo!
They will pickpocket your heart and emotions with their gorgeous, handsome looks. They will rob your views away from the historical building! My advice, just look down and don’t look anywhere else!
It might be true that Paris has its fair share of pickpockets and petty crimes but so does other big cities. The key here is to always be vigilant with your stuff. 🙂
They will scam you, dry!
They will scam away all your Euros from you, believe me, they do it with their pastries. You think one is just enough but you kept wanting more and more! The moment you bite into your croissants and pan au chocolate, you willingly give away all your Euros!
To be honest, I did saw one of these scams at the airport today. Ignore, do the “talk to the hand” gesture and walk away like a diva. Always work. 😛
It smells so BAD!
It does! Everytime I walked past by a Boulangerie Patisserie, I have to cover my nose because the delicious butterry-sweet-smell of freshly baked pastries and bread will distract me from my really intention! Paris, you should do something about this very very “horrible smell”!
Pee smell is NOT everywhere, you will get more pastries smell though.
I had a great time in Paris. Maybe I need to give it more to time to truly understand the real Paris but my four days in France was nothing short of amazing. I hope you all read it with a light heart and laugh it out with me.
Thank you Malaysia Airlines for flying me via Paris for me to connect to Greece for The Volunteer Cook Greece. 🙂
