I wrote earlier about Deyrolle in Paris and my wish to sometime go there. Well, this year, while we were crossing Paris by car in a rush to get to our hotel at the city’s airport, I looked to my left and saw the very shop of my dreams! It was the most luckiest of coincidences (but of course I don’t believe in chance). How absurd to be driving through that immense city without any plan to visit Deyrolle or any notion as to its whereabouts to then find it suddenly! We immediately parked our car, it was actually half past seven in the evening and the shop was about to close. Another lucky coincidence and proof it was absolutely meant to be! It was definitely worth the visit!
I have to admit I was somewhat worried about the London hotel we booked, since we got this recommendation via via, you never know do you… But I was definitely very happy when we arrived. CitizenM is trendy, functional and very well organized. You get to watch a free film every night, have a tablet with internet on your room (and Wifi in the hotel) and if you book breakfast you will be sure to wake up to a really nice one. I got a little bit carried away by the mood lights you can control in the room, it took up most of my room time. It was really close to Tate Modern which was nice and we were also close to Borough Market were you could find all kinds of fresh and organic foods. It is definitely on my list to visit again!
