Day 1 (25th Nov) - We touched down at 7.35am local time at Orly South Airport, France.
From airport, we took airport transfer to Anthony Station at 1,80 Euro per adult, and headed straight to Gare du Nord main station.
Taverny, is a sub-urban area from Paris, and also our home for this trip. From Gare du Nord, we took train at @Euro3,95 per adult for about 35mins journey.
Once we reached Taverny, we were happy to see our friend Madjid, he prepared the traditional French breakfast for us and showed us around. After light lunch, we decided to bring Jie Rou to Disneyland Paris for a walk. we back to Gare du Nord main station, took express train and stopped at Marne la Vallee Parcs Disneyland station. It was a cold and rainy day, we are not familiar with the direction, so we have to check and ask around. By the time we reached Disneyland is already 3.30pm. Since half of the day gone, we don’t want to waste money for the half day tour. Hence, we detour to Val d’ Europe and heading for shopping. A little warning to highlight; during the waiting time, we have bumped into a group of corn man. The lucky thing is Edmond alert me and we managed to escape.
La Vallee Village is a huge factory outlet store, next to it is the shopping mall that offer variety of fashion and stuffs. There are Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren, Celine, Longchamp, and most of the famous designer brands you can name it! However, I found the price is still at the higher side for a factory outlet store. After an hour plus of walking around, we couldn’t get anything we like, and our stomach is again calling. So we stopped by at Italian Restaurant in the shopping mall for food and drinks. The meal cost us about Euro40+, that include 2 main courses, a beer, a glass of wine and a kid set.
Right after that, we return back to Taverny as Madjid told us earlier that he has arranged dinner with his friends and family with us at 6.30pm.
While, needless to say… The dinner has ended almost at 12midnigt. We have burnt BBQ food from Madjid, and lots of alcohol supply! But, what we like the most is the Champaign and beers!!!
