Which is really cool! However.. I’ve waited 55 minutes for a train at 3 am once. Then I also fell asleep on the train and ended up in the Bronx. (badum tish) First off, the unlimited- monthy metro card here in Paris only costs… I think 70 Euros. In New York, I think it’s $1.31! (€1.05) OH YEAH And then my camera falls in the Seine. Y’all.

  4. Ahh the soothing sound of the subway car coming to a stop reminds me of home

  5. As for visiting, and one who's been to both, I find New York to be noticeably more expensive than Paris

  6. Do that in Tokyo for 2000yen lol
    You’d get breakfast and lunch and boom you’re broke

  7. If you have 20$ in algeria you can do a lot of things !! And you can live with it 2 or 3 days 🙂

  8. You're rich if you spend $20 a day here in the Philippines

  9. $20 in Australia, Adelaide

  10. 6:20 it's not "Don't do that" but "porte ouverte" !! The translation is so funny in your vidéo !

  11. I always wanted to go to Paris.i go to New York all the time since my family’s over there

  12. I watch this channel in French club 😂 and I love it~! 🌻🦋✨

  13. I live in NYC and I have been in Paris and I felt like Paris was way cheaper. The food was way more fresh, I felt like a Queen in Paris and in NYC I feel like a peasant lmao.

  14. Try living in NZ with $20 a day, that is about $13 USD.
    Yep, I said that 😂

  15. I can't look at a metrocard without remembering that one time I was drunk in NYC and dropped mine , only to run to the last train but get stopped by a cop to check my ticket and it went MIA. I was charged like $150 fine and had to get an taxi back to where I was staying LOL such luck .

  16. "What can you buy with 20 Indonesian Rupiah?" "You meant….. 20,000 Indonesian Rupiah?"

  17. Well,if u were in turkey 1€:7.5 turkish lira and 1 bottle water is 1 turkish lira so you can do whatever you want with 20€ in turkey (cause our economy got fucked up)

  18. Tu t'es grave fait arnaqué pour le pain au chocolat !!!!!!! La plupart du temps c'est 0,95€ 😱😱😱

  19. To be honest in my opinion Europe is way more cheaper but London is obviously expensive because tourists go there and it has ancient history but if you live in a small village in England I swear everything is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cheap but London is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo expensive I think America is expensive but I will admit they sell incredible stuff and it’s so pretty

  20. $20 American dollars is I think about $300 Haitian dollars. Or is that too much.

  21. I live in New York and I just came from visiting Paris. Both cities are beautiful yet expensive 😩

  22. R$20 in Brazil u get to go by bus and buy a subway

  25. OMG we LOVE your personalities!! So cute! New subbies right here!

  26. Jo your voice is sweet!!! Awwww if I met you on the street my heart would be warmed for years and years

  27. Ok actually this video helped a whole lot!!!! And the channel is kinda iconic 💁🏻‍♂️😂

  28. Forget about the money (and btw 20 Euros are not 20 Dollars, anyway), the difference I see here is in interaction with others: Nice chat with an old guy (you make my day), brief encounter with a dog, explaining the way to a tourist etc. While the guy in Paris had none of this.

  29. NYC is one of the most expensive citys in the world i think especially Manhattan

  30. 1 euro 35 le pain au chocolat à Paris !?
    J'suis choquée sans être trop étonnée (ce qui est totalement contradictoire)

  31. Paris, I love you but you ain't shit lol. I must agree. Tu as pris ton café aux pères populaires ? I sat on this sofa.

  32. Wsh 1,35€ le pain au chocolat il c’est fait arnaquer moi j’en achète a 0,90€

  33. We don’t say « pain au chocolat » but « chocolatine » 😂

  34. So definitely Paris he could’ve skipped that last meal and ate at home and have spent no more than 16 he still did a lot

  35. Funny, cause I'm just on vacation in Paris and this gets into my recommendations

  36. Waaaah mais c'est grave chère 1€35 pour un pain au chocolat viens en banlieue c'est moins cher

  37. I love them both but they were eating the whole day and spending the money mostly on eating, I would instead go to a museum or I don't know, visit more in the city and at the end she's saying I am hungry 😂 she is funny!!! Love your videos.

  38. 2:33

    de le écart ❌
    de l’écart ✅

  40. Wow the NYC subway is pretty expensive ( 2,75$) 1 $ more than L.A but Its a largest railway network

  41. im going to paris and ny alone in dec!!! andddd goddammmm i needa save

  42. That moment in the subway you can’t decide wether it’s the screeching is from the train or the rats

  43. 5:24 AHHH that's the street where my apartment was when I studied abroad in Paris!!!

  44. le pain au chocolat à 1.35€ à paris c’est de l’arnaque, en province c’est 0.99€

  45. In Paris if you're from the European Union and under 26 yo there's a lot of Museum or monument where you can go for free 🙂 (Musée du Louvre, d'Orsay, de l'orangerie, going at the top of the Arc de Triomphe,…) If you're not from the European Union but you're a student there's a lot of places where you can have reduced price!
