Deauville last minute weekend~

Here I am, in the train again, this time back to Paris.

Just yesterday morning, I was so excited to go on a totally unexpected journey. After a week of difficult work, I was expecting myself to be sitting in my flat in Paris, maybe working in front of my laptop on Saturday, and just rest on Sunday. And in the spur of the moment, I decided to join my friends to Deauville.

It has been an eye-widening experience. I didn’t expect this small city in Normandy to be so charming, clean, but also luxurious, with a lot of beautiful cars and luxury stores. I also entered a Casino and gambled for the first time in my life. I honestly do not intend to get addicted to it, but I thought it would be nice to at least try it once. I appreciated how nice the Casino was decorated inside, and entertaining the games.

I also remember watching a documentary on YouTube about a major renovation of the beautiful and renowned hotel, Le Normandy in Deauville. Of course I paid a visit to this hotel. The hotel looks indeed very nice, freshly renovated, I liked its style very much. It is not Ritz-Paris-luxurious, neither poetic like the Chenonceau Castle, but it is sobre luxury, and very charming.

Deauville is also famous for its seafood, fresh and less pricey comparing to Paris. People told me that seafood is a must-have, so I had some. It was indeed very good. Cidre is also a specialty there. Although I am definitely not so into alcohol, much to my surprise I liked it very much. And here’s another first for me, I finished an entire cup of alcohol for the first time in my life.

So that’s it! Another week to come. But hopefully this time, I fully recharged my battery of energy and motivation before the go. Thank you so much my friends to have count me in! At the end of the day, why do we work so hard in life and never allow ourselves to live these rewarding experiences?
