please did you use an agent to process your Schengen visa, or did you apply yourself?

There is no better way to have a holistic view of this historic city than to get on the Big Bus Paris!
It's a hop-on, hop-off tour service that takes tourists across the city to most of the iconic sites, and you also get to see the city at bird's eye view, rather than just street-level on foot.

So, we already got out tickets down! The cost is €38/person online, but we got €3 discount from the hotel @ €35/ticket.
Please, I want to confirm if German embassy allows hotel reservations from Booking.com or if you use it. If otherwise, which platform did you use to do your booking? It's important as I have appointment with the embassy.


Thank you

Some of those agents will get you banned for life after scamming you of your hard earned money.
I filled the forms online myself, printed them, chose my appointment date, and headed there together with bae on our appointment day.
No middle man at all.

Confirmed.
I use booking.com all the time.
But be careful to chose hotels with FREE CANCELATION clearly stated in the confirmation mail they sent you.

You are welcome.
Ensure that your check in/check out days tallys with the duration you quoted in the application.
Also, chose a moderate hotel so that the bills won't raise eyebrows.
Then print out the confirmation letter and attach to your flight ticket (don't pay for the flight ticket yet ooo.lol )

You get interviewed one on one. And that's a good thing about the German Embassy, unlike the UK that you submit and go.

Oya o... Big Bus, take us to the city monuments!
We are all seated in this double decker open roof bus.
The rule is you must not stand up on the roof, you can go down at any of the sites, have fun there, and then join another bus to continue the trip. Buses come around at roughly 10mins intervals, and they run all day.

May God forever bless you sir!

Is 500k accommodation for a 7 Day trip fair enough?

Please, the flight reservation I did online with Lufthansa has just been cancelled (sad). How do I make reservation that won't be cancelled after 3 days? Will Travel Agency help? (I mean those travel and tour companies not scamming visa agents)

Talk to any IATA Certified travel agent to get you a demo ticket that matches your travel dates.

Chai, madam you want to flex real good on hotels oo. I hope BabaGrace is joining on this trip oo. grin grin
As per accommodation, 500k for 7days will surely get you plenty luxury suites. I budgeted max of €100/night and that's like 42k/night. But some cities are more expensive than others like we experienced, moving from Frankfurt to Paris.
Good thing is that while searching, you can change the currency option to naira or just go straight to booking.com.ng so you'll have your choice hotels prices in Naira.
But remember that it's not only accommodation you need- transportation also takes huge chunks- Inter city flights goes from about €250 to €400 per trip for Light, and can reach double of that for flex tickets.
So, the best thing is to pull out your spread sheet and plug in all the expenditures you will likely bear.

This baguette is actually a dry stick bread. It's very popular around here. It's length is about 2-3 feet.
I first saw it in Frankfurt and unlooked but when I saw it in Paris I decided to have a go.

Funny thing is that when my wife saw it in my shopping trolly she said, ' what are you doing with a machette?' grin grin

Lmao Machete ki grin i love Baguette smiley

....unless of course he unknowingly orders it cooked rare. grin The steak will be dripping with 'blood'. In France, you can't go wrong with their baguette. The french love their baguette same way the germans love their weird sausages.

Nice photos OP.

The simpler you make your process, the better.
Let your wife be the lead applicant, it's easier for salaried earners as all documents required from her will be handy. I will suggest you tag along as a student because once you mention the business you must provide all documentations.

The Louvre Museum- This is the largest Art museum in the whole world.
According to our tour guide, this used to be a fortified palace for successive Kings for hundreds of years before it's final conversion to a museum.

Right in the middle of that museum is this gigantic glass Pyramid with two other smaller pyramids by the side.
Popularly known as the Louvre pyramid.
There are so many controversies and conspiracy theories about this pyramid and Illuminati.
It is believed by the conspirators that exactly 666 pieces of glass blades were used in the construction and that the French President that commissioned the constructions, François Mitterand is a Masonic occult grand master.

Back view of the Louvre. Can you spot that iconic mansard roof?

Guys, one amazing thing about this historic city is that practically every single boulevard holds an epic history.
And in spite of all the numerous wars tat defined their history, they managed to retain these monuments for posterity.

A typical Paris street building.
Each building can be as long as 100m long.
And it's between 5-7 stories.

The shocking thing about Paris architecture? There are hardly any skyscraper. The skyscrapers on the Lagos Marina alone can put the whole of Paris to shame. Lol

Sorry guys.
I have received tons of PM already, and from my previous experiences on NL, I'm sorry I won't be responding.
If you have any questions ask them here, if I can I will answer or other members can help.

I'm only responding to Madamgrace's request because she asked here and it's something I can help with.
