Back in Paris in July to celebrate my birthday, what you certainly haven't missed if you follow me on Instagram.
It reminded me of last year (Article My Bday in Paris), then made me think back to 2018 and 2017, I take you with me on a little trip through time and space!
The year of my rebirth, the new me, I was already happy and fulfilled before, but certainly not as much connected to myself as I am since my Solo Wedding in Santorini.
My birthdays are always memorable, I’m surrounded by amazing people, I hadn’t celebrated my birthday in France for more than 10 years, and my sister surprised me this time.
We were going for a weekend somewhere, that's all I knew, it was a surprise ...
Departure from Reims station (France).
For an unknown destination because I wasn't allowed to look at the signs and I had headphones on my ears ...
I might as well tell you that everything was possible in my head, and I was leaning towards Holland or Ireland.
It was finally my favourite city, Paris, and I don't say that because I'm French, it's unique and romantic, the atmosphere is magical and inspiring in all weathers. But it wasn’t yet my surprise ...
Direction the Parisian metro, exit "Bercy" then with my amazed eyes I discover: Celine Dion concert!
Returned to my magical island I missed terribly after 6 months of absence. And my heart filled with joy as the ferry approaches Santorini’s cliffs.
My friend Emanouela oversees the festivities, I’ll be staying at Ampelonas Hotel again, the one of my Solo Wedding.
Black sand beach, drinks with friends and restaurants, I don’t have time to be bored during my short stay, as for my birthday, it’ll remain etched in my memory.
Breakfast prepared by my friend, overlooking the caldera, dinner with girls at my favourite restaurant, Rosemary at Pyrgos. Greek specialties of course as for my Wedding Menu.
For this unique occasion, I’m wearing an incredible dress by designer Adolfo Dominguez, a dress that I bought myself a few weeks before in Madrid, after the freezing of my eggs.
Then a bar with a DJ, surrounded by my many Greek friends, to dance and blow out my candles. Please note the cake is very special, it's my wedding cake!
Finally, I couldn't end the night without going dancing in the Greek club of the island, where each time I find myself being the only foreigner, which amuses me a lot and makes me feel half Greek ...
I've told you a lot about it last year:
Other friends, and even more madness: unusual places like the bar on the roof of the Moulin Rouge or the famous Magic Mike Live London show.
And obviously walks, restaurants and lots of cocktails, always in excellent company!
I never stop being ecstatic and rejoicing in front of so many new things and discoveries, the world is fascinating ...
To tell the truth, since it was my 40th birthday (reread my special article), I was planning to celebrate it with decadence in Cuba, with a hundred guests invited, luckily my intuition made me give up this fiesta in 2019, long before the Covid appears, I warmly thank my guardian angel!
Everything was organised at the last minute, according to desires / ideas and available people.
So, I started the party the night before, in Reims, with girlfriends, in a secret bar run by a friend, contact me here if you want to know the address 😉
A very nice place on the roof of a hotel, with a breathtaking view of the city and especially the Cathedral!
You know that I love Rooftop bars, I made you discover a few already: Paris, London, Athens ...
Then at midnight, I was officially celebrating my birthday with candles, champagne and macaroons, accompanied by one of my Wedding songs: The Best by Tina Turner (video at the end of the article).
A few days later, I walked through the gates of an indomitable Gallic village, Parc Asterix!
I like celebrating my birthday in a Theme Park, I’ve done it in the past, especially in Australia, and anyway you know how much I love that:
And finally, Paris with my best friends. Bistro and bar on the terrace in the purest Parisian tradition ...
And now I’ve finally decided to extend my stay in Paris to make other dreams come true, a 2nd honeymoon, 3 years after my Solo Wedding in Santorini.
I’ll tell you everything in detail, I promise!
All of my birthdays are unforgettable, and I make more of my dreams come true each time, not to mention I create new ones right away.
Stay tuned to find out how I'll celebrate it next year ...
And thank you to everyone who participated and wished me my birthday this year, lots of bisous!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
