CC: Lost in Paris!

Wednesday and it's time for "Couple's Corner". This week's topic is "Honey are we lost?" Oh, well, I used this question many times:)I really admire my husband being good in finding destinations by reading maps and looking in the internet, but still we had couple of times when we were late on parties or special event because we were lost! But I want to share the time when we were lost in Paris but became a blessing in disguise:) First day in Paris we stayed in disney hotels where the prices really beyond our budget. We got the cheapest which was 350 euro per night. If we continue to stay there we can just be two days at most otherwise, we will be out of budget. So, in the next morning, we checked out and hit the road again and we asked help from our road navigator (GPS) where we can find cheaper hotels or even a penthouse just for us to have some place to sleep at night, anyway we 're out during day time to explore different places there. So it shows us one place but we still didn't know if it's cheap or most likely the same.

My husband drive where the navigator pointed out. It was seemed so far and still we can't find the place, when GPS said one meter away there was a man stopping us and speaks no english. My husband tried to explain that we were looking for this hotel, the man sounds angry and said..no,no,no..private,private, I guard..pointing out his name plate, I guard! hehe, I was laughing inside but was terrified by the gesture. But he continue by his hands waving telling us to follow him. He went to his car and drive and my husband just follow:) we have no idea about that place. Then maybe just 10meters away, we were in a hotel and then he left us. Wow! when we get in and inquire I praised the Lord because the price was amazing..lol! 35euro per night with breakfast! Hhahah! So I said, thank you Lord we were lost, hahaha. So we were able to stay in Paris for 5days. It was more than enough!


Note: its not the hotel that we were looking for?:)

Wow, from 350 euro to 35 euro, how blessed can you get. God really works in mysterious ways. What seemed like an ugly incident turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Thanks for the inspiring post. God bless you all always.

Hehehe! blessing in disguise nga yun. kaya ayaw ko putna sa Paris, sabi ni hubby eh mahal daw ang bilihin. minsan nakakatakot punta sa foreign land lalo kapag walang english speaking na tao..
