Audrey Hepburn once said that Paris is always a good idea. Well .. I think things kind of changed a bit since then. I love you, Audrey, but Paris is no longer always a good idea...
2 days after coming from London, I had 4 free days (which is a lot for me :) .. so I've decided to actually listen to Audrey and spend them in Paris. I really needed an escape...(ohh who am I kidding, I always need it.) and I thought it was a good idea at the time ..
It's always good to see new places ... isn't it? but I didn't quite liked Paris and I can't even explain why but I did like Champs Elysees, Arc de Triumph, Eiffel Tower by night, Montmartre and Laduree shop.
Walking down the street from the Arc de Triumph, there is Jardin des Tuilleries where I stopped to relaxe a bit, enjoy the sun and just watch people walk by.
I keep repeating that I don't like museums and I'm sorry for that .. But I wanted to see Louvre and I didn't... I didn't have the patience to wait.The waiting line was just too long.
+ I wasn't alone there and my company didn't actually wanted to go inside. So.. maybe next time - if I'll ever go back to Paris.
The main attraction of Paris .. - Eiffel Tower
It's beautiful and I enjoyed staying on the grass in the morning when is less crowded. If you have some time - enjoy a picnic there ;) Still, my favorite view of the tower is by night.
Of course I hate the waiting lines but that one was the only one totally worth it!
I'll modestly say I really love the photos I took in Paris. Enjoy a few of them:
bright lights, big city...
she dreams of love ... :)
And here are my favorite spots in Paris besides the Eiffel Tower by night: Lover's Bridge and Wall of Love. Simply amazing. I haven't seen so many lockets in my life!!!
Crossing that bridge, I was wondering how many couples have promissed to love each other, that's so cute and romantic ... *sighs*
Make sure you have the whole day to enjoy the Palace of Versailles and the beautiful gardens.
It takes 30 minutes to get there by train. I just loved it .. It's a pity an unexpected change of weather made me rush through it .. but I felt I was beginning to catch a cold.. so I almost ran back in town... that's why there aren't many people in my photos :)
You can't go to Paris without eating some macarons from Laduree!! another waiting line I made without much grumpiness.
Ok, ok, I'll admit it. It wasn't THAT BAD ... maybe it's just about the way I felt there.. It wasn't that good either.. or maybe I need another trip, or to see things from different perspective. We'll see...
